Intimate Italia Wine and Food Tour

Pizza, Cheese and Lemon

Duration: 5 days

Location: Italy, Langhe, Alba,
Price: On Request


    Over these five days you explore the area where the Italians themselves like to go tasting. Going off the beaten track you’ll sample old-world recipes and delightful flavors that have stood the test of time. And as the tastes roll around the tongue, you’ll also bask in sublime landscapes and destinations hidden from the world.

    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.
