Veneto Cooking Vacations

Whether you wish to live like a native in incomparable Venice or explore the lesser-known areas of the Veneto wine regions, a culinary vacation in the Veneto with The International Kitchen will provide you with an authentic look into this stunning northern retreat. Venice itself needs no introduction: a labyrinth of canals and narrow streets, it has enchanted tourists for over a thousand years, and is an idyllic setting for your exciting cooking tour in Italy. Less known to outsiders, the Veneto region in its entirety offers much to the culinary traveler: from the jagged peaks of the Dolomites to the fertile banks of the Po River, the Veneto gave birth to legendary wines and fine cuisine, which you will explore during your Italian cooking vacation and gastronomic tours. We invite you to experience the “real” Veneto on an authentic Italian cooking vacation with The International Kitchen.
