More Photo-Worthy Destinations You Won’t Forget

Tuesday’s blog featured picturesque destinations for your cooking vacations – and it was such fun pouring over those pictures that we decided to share some more of our favorite Photo-Worthy spots. These are places you won’t ever forget, where you will feel compelled to pull out the phone for a “selfie” and where you’ll actually print (and frame!) the pictures from your trip and hang them on your wall!

Notre Dame Cathedral, ParisParis

This is a no-brainer, right? But the thing about Paris is it’s not just the famous sights that you take pictures of, it’s the food, the people, the sky… The art! From one arronidissement to another, you’ll find plenty to photograph during your stay. Another reason we love Paris is that it is so customizable, and in fact most of our trips to Paris are designed specifically for individual clients. (Did you know we can design a custom Paris foodie trip even for solos? Bet you didn’t!)

The five towns that make up the famed “Cinque Terre” of Italy’s Ligurian coast are breathtaking. These villages—Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore—collectively offer some of the most spectacular scenery you will see anywhere. But don’t forget to check out other beautiful spots in Liguria, such as the lovely Santa Margarita. (You can visit the Cinque Terre on some of our cooking vacations, such as Pesto, Pasta, and the Cinque Terre.)

Try this recipe for Ligurian pansoti (ravioli).

Puente del Inca
Mendoza, Argentina

Why not head to Argentina for your next cooking vacation? (Here are 4 reasons why!) This country offers plenty for the food lover, including the beautiful Mendoza region. For the “wino” in all of us there are wonderful vineyards and wineries (Malbec, anyone?), and the food is influenced both by indigenous cultures and by the many western European (predominantly Italian) immigrants who settled there. Not to miss? The amazing vistas afforded by going into the “High Country,” including Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of Asia, and the beautiful, mysterious Puenta del Inca.

The Taj Mahal

Folks, there is a reason it is considered one of the new Wonders of the World. It might seem like a lot to go across the globe to Agra, India, to see it, but if you’re looking for a photo-op, this is it! If you’d like another reason to go, India offers hundreds of them, including the picturesque Chhatra Sagar, a man-made lake that anchors pristine wetlands, grasslands, and scrub forests that are home to hundreds of species of birds.
