Special Tastes of Le Marche: An Insiders Tour

Truffle hunting, wine tasting, cooking classes, restaurant recommendations and wine tasting with the winemakers: Le Marche creates an outstanding experience with Italia’s food.

Le Marche is full of icons that only the Italians know about. The country’s oldest cafe, sublime wine cellars full of history, truffles to be unearthed in the woods, medieval fortresses and typical recipes that are kept local. We think it’s the ultimate place to go off the beaten track and experience the authentic food of Italia.

    Five days is an ideal amount of time if you want a true immersion in the flavors. In Le Marche you discover bucolic areas of Italy untouched by tourism, where local artisans and chefs maintain the traditions of the past. You get to breathe rural Italy and feel its atmosphere through exclusive local experiences. In many ways, this is Italia from the depths of the imagination.

    All our tours are individually customized to your interests. This day to day program was designed for previous guests of Italy Charme. While we loved guiding this private tour, it is purely an example of what can be possible and we will tailor your day to day program to your interests.
