Above all our cooking class was incredibly fun and we even got to make stuffed olives which turned out to be quite good! In the end we felt the value of the tour was very high and would like to return in 2017 for a longer trip. Thank you so much for making us discovered this wonderful part..."

    We spent our honeymoon in Ascoli Piceno on one of the trips offered by The Italian on Tour. Words cannot express how surreal the whole experience was. Chantelle and Giovanni were the most amazing guides, and we can't wait to go back! The wine and olive oil tasting they took us to at a local winery was superb, and we ended up taking a few bottles of each back home to Canada. We got to visit quite a few historical sites, including a fortress, Roman aqueduct, and a beautiful theater from the 1800s. The city center of Ascoli Piceno where we stayed was like something out of a movie, with the way the Piazza lights up at night. We are so grateful for everything we experienced on our trip!

    The first night I ate a handmade truffle and cream pasta and I am still thinking about it after a year! The next day we visited a small producer of sparkling wine. He showed us how champagne is made, what a cool experience! We ended up bringing some fantastic bottles home with us in Canada. Awesome food, people, wine and fun all around!!! Beverly, Vancouver, BC

    We have wanted to visit Marche and Abruzzo for a few years now. The quality ( and quantity!) of the meals was above anything we expected. Many of the ingredients came from the gardens at the back of our restaurants! Our cooking class was very fun, mother daughter and son all came out to help us make a few local dishes. I even had the chance to make a pizza from scratch with dough that we prepared, what a fun time! Having a bilingual guide with us made the difference. We will be back for a bike tour in 2017! Thanks, Kara and Glenn

    Visiting Marche was a pleasant surprise for us. We were on a longer trip and decided to do the Taste of Italy for 5 days to visit a new area. What we most enjoyed about our visit was the city of Ascoli Piceno with its beautiful medieval center. In fact, we walked from our hotel after dinner every evening and explored the Roman amphitheater. A very different feel overall compared to the busy roads of the major cities. Our cooking class was exquisite and we were even given some home made fig jam to bring back to Seattle. Forget Tuscany next time, this is the real deal !! Thank you for showing us around, Ashley and Jens

    This trip was incredible. Our group was composed of only 6 people so it felt like a custom tour rather than one of the typical organized larger groups you see in Italy. This was definitely the highlight for us as we got to spend a lot of quality time throughout the week and had the guide all to ourselves! We would go back in a heart beat! Thank you, Patricia
