2016 Fall Culinary Excursions: Amalfi Coast

Delectable Destinations presents personally escorted signature trips featuring exceptional food, wine and culinary experiences. Join us for a culinary pilgrimage to Europe this fall as we explore Andalusia in Spain, and the Amalfi Coast and Puglia in Italy.  In order to assure personalized attention, our exclusive trips are limited to small groups of passionate travelers.

Experience a trip of a lifetime that offers you a wonderful mix of culture, history, luxury, beauty while indulging your culinary palate with great food and wine.

The Amalfi Coast remains an intriguing mix of sophistication and simplicity that is best explored through its cuisine and there is no better place to eat, cook and discover than on our signature tour of this spectacular region of Italy. Our home for the week will be at a beautiful private villa located in historic town of Ravello, with breathtaking views, surrounded by lemon, orange and olive trees.

This epicurean adventure is a week-long discovery of Italy’s cuisine, culture and the “Vita Bella” through food, wine and traditions. From visits to family run private vineyards, olive and lemon orchards, pizza and mozzarella making, to an unforgettable day walking through history in Pompeii. Losing yourself in the beauty of Ravello and its world famous gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo, and driving along the famous “Costiera Amalfitana” among the glittering string of coastal gems, such as Vietri sul Mare, Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento.

The secrets of the region will unfold before your eyes during our behind-the-scenes visits to traditional shops and producers introducing you to culinary customs based on simplicity and rooted in generations of traditions. Family-run restaurants welcome you with open arms and serve up a true taste of Italy.

Guests will learn first-hand about the history, culture and cuisine of this beautiful region. The week will lead you to the famous kitchen of Mamma Agata – Picture a historic village perched high above the sparkling Mediterranean, surrounded by lush mountains and stoney cliffs. A charming, three hundred year old country home is nestled among the trees and warm breezes carry the tantalizing aromas of sprawling citrus orchards, vineyards and flower gardens. Mamma Agata, Chiara and Gennaro will make you feel right at home and delight you with “simple & genuine” family recipes and history.

What you’ll be eating:  the freshest seafood, regional pasta dishes, can’t-get-anywhere-else cheeses, wonderful pastries.  And drinking delicious Limoncello, of course.
