When is the best time to visit Italy on an Italy food tour and cooking vacation? Many of us at The International Kitchen would say the fall, when wonderful fall produce is in season, new olive oil is coming out of the presses, and the weather turns a bit less hot.
We’re making travel to Italy this fall easier than ever with three very special fall promotions!
Travel to the estate of the Baracchi family for one of our favorites, and stay at their lovely Relais & Chateaux hotel near Cortona. Look out over the family vineyards, and taste their wines at the estate winery and with your amazing meals. Finally, learn the secrets of Tuscan cuisine with family matriarch and celebrity chef Silvia Baracchi and her talented team of chefs during hands-on cooking classes.
You can Cook under the Tuscan Sun November 1-24, 2019, for 20% off the regular 3-night or 6-night itinerary (2 people minimum). If you book 3 or more rooms for the 6-night itinerary we’ll give you an extra 10% off – that’s 30% off total!
Head south to the Campagna region and the Amalfi Coast for this fabulous 4- or 6-night tour. Stay in a small, boutique 5* hotel, cook in the amazing teaching kitchen, visit such sites as Pompeii, Capri, Ravello, Positano, and Sorrento, and enjoy the best of Italian hospitality with our friends Salvatore, Giovanni, Giuseppe, and Josie!
You can experience one of our very favorite trips for 20% off the regular low season rate October 6-12 and October 20-26, 2019.
Travel to the Chianti part of Tuscany to cook with the amazing chef Andrea, who will host you in his traditional farmhouse, loving renovated into a small B&B. Collect eggs in the morning for your breakfast, gather vegetables in the garden, forage with Andrea for wild mushrooms, and cook it all together during your hands-on Tuscan cooking classes. As if that weren’t enough, spend the rest of your time exploring Tuscany with this passionate and charming native son.
Try Living the Real Tuscan Dream during the special mushroom and olive oil week October 27-November 2, 2019, at just $3100 per person – that’s a savings of $500 per person on the regular price!
What are you waiting for? This is the perfect time to experience the best of Italian flavors and life!
