A short description:

Taste the flavours of Italy with Paola…who better than her for this Gourmet tour?! Her passion for cooking and her constant research for quality ingredients, led her to Veneto: she discovered the hidden gems of this wonderful land and she selected some special experiences just to craft this exclusive tour for her classes!

Paola also selected ‚Äúboutique style‚ÄĚ accommodations in the very city center of two iconic cities (PADOVA and VENEZIA), so that you will surely immerse yourself in the real Italian lifestyle!

We will be based in Padua and Venice city centers to explore Veneto, an area that ¬†includes several Unesco World Heritage Sites: Padua with the Botanical Garden, the Colline del Prosecco, again Padua with the Frescos of year 1300 (including Giotto’s and Mantegna’s) and surely Venice with its lagoon.

We will enjoy two cooking classes in private Italian Villas, where we will be exlusively hosted by a local chef!

A day discovering the hidden gems of charming villages such as Marostica and Bassano del Grappa and another day in the fall countryside landscape of the Colli Euganei  visiting a charming Villa, will complete our itinerary.

Food and wine won’t be missing, of course!

Some experiences, such as an exclusive visit of a pottery producer in a ancient court, the Grappa museum, an awarded cheese producer, a visit to Padua food market, a Cicchetti tour in Venice, a Prosecco winery, Olive oil farm and more … are just waiting for us!

This itinerary is a combination of Italy’s ¬†big highlights, gourmet food&wine experiences and charming secrets gems that you will hardly forget!
