During this special program, you will live northern Italy, not as a tourist, but as an Italian, as you travel and dine with Chef Mark Mcdonald of Old Vine Café and Master Chef John Nocita of the Italian Culinary Institute. Together we will explore four regions of northern Italy: Veneto, Emilia Romagna, Lombardia and Trentino-Alto Adige, and will experience all of the delicacies and hidden gems of these breathtakingly beautiful regions. Created for the most discerning epicureans, Splendors of North Italy is the most impressive leisure tour of Northern Italy, and is the only that is hosted and presented by Chef Mark McDonald and the Italian Culinary Institute (ICI). All hotels offer 4 star accommodations and are located in the heart of each city. Our excursion has been planned by real chefs who share a love for
travel, fine wine, dining and culture as much as you do!
This once in a lifetime experience includes nine nights of superior accommodations in 4 star hotels, professional transfers to and from the airport or train station, hands-on cooking class with Chef John Nocita, cheese making course and tasting with Chef John Nocita, six dinners with world-class wines, breakfast every day, most lunches, wine tasting tour at Solive, and all ground transportation while still allowing for essential free time for further exploration at the travelers own pace.
