Italy Trips (scroll down to see all trip dates-then click on the seasons in the dropdown menu to see a little about each season!)

Dates are set for 2023 to Roseto Valfortore and we are working on Alberona and Casteluccio Valmaggiore next!  Dates are listed below. (more may be added if needed)
Please NOTE Once you decide you are even slightly interested... you must fill out a form and we will set up a phone call.(or you can just call me directly)  That's how I do it.  These are VERY personal trips near and dear to my heart. I don't just put it out there on the internet and wait for people to just show up.  We make friends first!  It's the Italian way!
That's why prices are not here on my site.  But rest assured it's the best deal ever!
Thank you for understanding.   
Love, Dorina

Cooking and travel to Italy… It doesn’t get any better than that!  Let’s Cook… Let’s Eat… and let’s learn how to live Italian style in Roseto Valfortore, or Alberona, Italy.  Come take a trip to my small southern Italian village of Roseto Valfortore or the neighboring town of Alberona . Come Cook and learn why the “Roseto Effect” is sought the world over and fully evident in these villages.

EACH (ground only)TRIP INCLUDES:

  • 10 days in a small village in Italy

  • Lodging ​

  • Welcome dinner 

  • 4-5 Cooking lessons with Dorina, Chef Giuseppe and Mamma's of town!

  • A walking tour of the town, (these southern villages date back to 900 A.D and older!) that explores the culture, history and traditions of the town

  • On Market day of your trip shop for food, shoes, clothing, souvenirs etc. in town at the Mercato (the street market)

  • Basically ... everything is included except for one meal a day... and not even always --(sometimes an extra meal is still included!)

  • and more...See individual trip pages for details by season

REMINDER-- trips do not include airfare as I'm not a travel agent... but I have the best travel agent around that I will give you to book your flight.  It's not mandatory you use her... but she is AWESOME!
