Eating in this region is truly a Mediterranean experience.
Fresh and bright, Southern Italian cuisine is a direct offshoot of the region’s pleasant weather, Mediterranean influences, and laid-back lifestyle. Long summers bring bountiful tomato harvests—and the red sauces, pizzas, and salads that most diners associate with Italian cooking. On this small group Food & Wine Tour, explore the region’s best tastes in the undiscovered coastal towns and tucked-away villages where staples like olive oil and wine are lovingly produced.
