The "Real" Italy
May 22-June 5, 2023
TUSCANY, EMILIA-ROMAGNA, LAKE COMO - Italy is on one the most beautiful places on earth! While we will be visiting some popular areas, this trip will focus on the REAL Italy...not just the touristy sites. We'll spend two weeks living in local homes, touring with local residents, learning more about their country, their customs, their history, their cuisine, their every day life. The trip includes stays in three separate regions of Italy: Barberino Val D'elsa in Tuscany, Campora in the Emilia-Romagna region, and Lake Como in the Lombardy region. We'll enjoy their fabulous restaurants and participate in cooking classes. We'll explore the natural beauty of the country, visit a parmesan cheese factory, and learn how to make an authentic Italian pizza. And, of course, we'll take in a wine tasting or two. But most of all, we'll enjoy the people we meet along the way. This will be a trip to remember!
