EATING IN ITALY: WHERE TO GO, AND WHY

Written by

“Why is Italian food so good?” “Because these flavours are distilled by centuries of history.”

Before starting this short guide about the city of Romeo and Juliet, I will answer some frequently asked questions …

Many people get in touch with us because they are considering a tour in Italy, and they are just undecided between a coach tour and a private one. So they ask us: why should I take a private tour of italy? Why with your company? Here are 8 plus 1 good reasons, we hope you enjoy them!

In Tuscany, eat like a Tuscan

Written by

I am in love with Tuscany: a perfect combination of landscapes, art, culture. I really am, also because "il mi nonno”, my grandfather, originally came from Serravalle, in the province of Arezzo. But there’s another reason why I love it so much: its CUISINE.

In Rome, eat like a Roman

Written by

When you are in Italy, eat like a local.

Yes, because if you do not know Italian cuisine you might think you are eating a typical Amatriciana in Florence, or enjoying a typical Mortadella in Venice. The fact is that Italian cuisine is not a national but a regional cuisine, and each region has its own specialties: if you find the same dishes in another region, many times the "national" version is far from the original, “local” one. So, it's time to venture into a world of typical restaurants where you will not find Italians but Romans, Venetians, Florentines, Neapolitans.

There is always a chance to taste Parmigiano Reggiano when we are on a tour, in every part of the country. Yes, because Parmigiano Reggiano is somehow the “national” cheese.

To me, as well as to many Italians who love Siena and often pay a visit to the city, the Palio is a combination of colors, sounds and emotions.

The colors, from yellow ocher turf lying on the Piazza del Campo to those of the flags and the handkerchiefs of the “contradaioli”.

Well known all over the world, Rome has a fascinating history behind her. The capital of Italy has emerged from a small settlement of shepherds on the Palatine hill and it represents now a perfect mix  between art, culture, food and shopping.

Message from the CEO
Dear all,
in these very difficult days for all of us, for Italy and the whole world, we hope that you, your families and your loved ones are well and are making the most of your time.
It feels like the entire world right now is on edge. It seems like the world has paralyzed, our lives have suddenly changed, it’s so difficult to adapt to a new reality, some people we know are leaving us forever.
There is also a lot of fear about what will happen. No one can make predictions.
But there is a beginning and an end to everything.
There are thousands of doctors, researchers and scientists who are working on a solution.
We are reacting with strength, determination and cohesion without forgetting our deep humanity, joy and creativity. Human beings have already overcome difficult times like this, so we must look ahead and keep on living. In this period let’s try to do things we have never done, to rediscover our families, our loved ones and friendships. Let’s use this period to improve ourselves internally, to think about the gift of our lives, to love, to embrace, to smile, to tell each other things that we would never have said.
To our friends who like travelling and exploring….
It's very difficult to be world travelers stuck at home. We must stop and get through this exceptional chapter safely, and we miss travelling. But please, keep on dreaming, with the same positivity, passion, curiosity you had before. On our side, we are here at work with the same passion and professionalism, with the same desire to continue to share emotions, stories, projects with our friends. We are working for a tomorrow made of new services and new ideas, to make your travels even more pleasant, more comfortable and more intense. It is a new challenge, which we never expected to face but, with your help, we will start again, stronger than before and always close to you.
And soon the time will come when once again we will swim together in our beautiful lakes and seas, walk together in our cities, cook together in our kitchens, eat together at our trattorias, sip together a glass of wine at our cellars.
Until then, I want to thank you for your support and understanding. Take care of yourself, we can't wait to give you a warm welcome back to our fantastic country.
Grazie e ciao,


Marcello Cordovani
Founder and CEO
