2019 Italy Tour Overview
Sicily | Greek Temples, Roman Ruins, and more
Sicily is an amazing conglomeration of waves of civilizations that have washed up on its shores – Phoenician, Carthaginian, Greek, Roman, Arab and Norman to name a few. Sicily is Greek temples, Roman ruins, Arab markets, Norman cathedrals, Mount Etna and more. There is where you enjoy Sicilian couscous, Pasta Norma, Cannoli and cassata, Nero d’Avola wine and Averna, its unique digestive liqueur.
Lake Garda & the Italian Alps | The best of both worlds
Lake Garda & the Italian Alps is known for its fortress castles, its turquoise colored lakes, the lemon trees and olive groves that grace Lake Garda’s slopes and the Alps’ breathtaking jagged pink peaks. This region encapsulates the best of both worlds: the warm and sunny Mediterranean climate of Lake Garda and the fresh air and pure water of the Dolomites’ pristine alpine meadows and glorious mountain heights. Think polenta and porcini mushrooms, speck and spressa cheese washed down by Valpolicella Amarone or Alto Adige white Gewurtztrauminer and let’s not forget strudel for dessert.
Puglia | Exquisite blue beaches and olive groves as far as the eyes can see
Puglia - Embraced by the Adriatic and Ionian seas, is the land of exquisite blue flag beaches, unusual trulli structures and olive groves as far as the eye can see. The crusades were launched from its ports. The Murge plateau contains some of the oldest prehistoric cave communities of Italy. Its Altamura bread is unique and protected by European standards. Think creamy burrata mozzarella, orrecchiete pasta, grilled bombette meats and cream filled pasticciotto sweets.
