G Adventures Local Living

The world is your oyster.

This saying, and G Adventures Local Living tours,  perfectly combines two of life’s greatest pleasures:  travel and food. If you feel that way too, then G Adventures Local Living tours might be your cup of tea (We’ll stop now).  Their Local Living programs set you up with a central home base – say a Tuscan farmhouse or charming Agriturismo – and then help you discover how the locals live with the help of a connected CEO who knows the area.

This deep dive into local culture opens the door to a quicker understanding of place. Itineraries are a loose-fit, flexible and customizable with numerous options based on the elements of the destination that drew you to it.  You’ll not only experience the pleasure of contemplating the rolling hills of Emilia Romagna but get to savour their famous Culatello di Zibello DOP ham. Or dine al fresco in San Gimignano on the pasta you helped make. Or hike the Path of the Gods on the heavenly Amalfi Coast then toast your efforts with a Limoncello.  

Even though you stay in one location on Local Living trips for the majority of your holiday, the experience practically guarantees that you get to take it home with you for the rest of your life.  Here’s a look at just a few of the tempting locations on offer where you’ll discover how life is truly lived:

Tuscany San Gimignano: If you’ve ever wanted to forge a deeper bond with a destination, this is your chance. Centred in San Gimignano, this Local Living adventure places you in the heart of central Tuscany. You’re free to explore the town, visit vineyards, discover medieval highlights, or embrace your inner artist wandering the Tuscan countryside.

Coastal Tuscany:   See a side of Italy that tourists seldom witness on this intimate seven-day tour. Explore the streets of Capalbio, a remarkably well-preserved medieval town on the coast. Then immerse yourself into Tuscany’s local culture, staying overnight in a quaint villa, sampling homemade olive oil pressed from olives grown in nearby groves, and exploring the nearby island of Monte Argentario in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Hitting destinations off the tourist trail, you’ll truly explore Tuscany like a local.

Sorrento:  Get a taste for Italian life on this one-week trip to Sorrento, located just around the corner from the Amalfi Coast. Replete with gorgeous scenery and all the fantastic food and drink you’d expect, you’ll unwind on an organic lemon farm where a local family will be your hosts, giving you an in-depth look at what life at an Italian agriturismo is like. Learn how the famous Limoncello liquor is made. Walk along the stunning coastline, a visit to the elite island of Capri and a stop at Pompeii. Don’t be a tourist in Italy — live the dream.
 
Amalfi Coast:  Charming hilltop towns, acres of lemon groves and vineyards, mile after mile of stunning cliffs kissed by cobalt-blue waters… its official name is the Amalfi Coast, but this magical land answers to “heaven.” On this trip, you’ll live like one of the region’s (incredibly lucky) locals, discovering the small towns, mountain trails, and local customs of this uniquely beautiful place. Explore the ruins of Pompeii in the morning, hike the coastline of the Med by afternoon, and tuck into bed at your converted 17th-century monastery home base at sundown. It’s paradise, found.
Amalfi Coast Winter:  Get ready to live like a local on this off-season trip to the hilltop towns and vineyards of the Amalfi Coast, where you’ll explore the small towns and trails of this beautiful countryside while experiencing local customs and once-in-a-lifetime moments. Explore the ruins of Pompeii in the morning, hike the coastline of the Med by afternoon, and tuck into bed at your converted 17th-century monastery home base at sundown. Since this trip takes place in the offseason when it’s just a bit cooler out, there are fewer people around the Amalfi Coast—meaning you’ll have that much more paradise all to yourself.
