Here, at Authentic Adventures, we believe that travelling as part of a group and in the company of an expert can truly enhance your travel experience. We recently partnered with TV foodie favourite Gregg Wallace to design a collection of unique Italian Food Holidays, and wanted to give you 5 reasons to join one of these immersive trips.
1) You won't be able to do these tours yourself
In this modern era with everything we could ever need at the click of a button, it's easy to assume that things included on an itinerary could be booked independently - and often for less than advertised. If only this were true! Many of the visits we have secured – from tours and tastings at Parma ham producers to the chance to walk alongside a shepherdess and her prized flock of Zerasca sheep – are inimitable. Booking these experiences for you was made possible by our little black book and the relationships we've made with locals and producers in Italy over the past 30 or so years. You can't replicate these itineraries independently as many of the places we will take you to are strictly off-limits to the public. Coming to Italy with us means being welcomed like an old friend, getting access-all-areas experiences and first-hand insight into the creation of these iconic food products.
