This exclusive luxury tour is ideal for repeat travelers to Italy or anyone who wants to visit some of Italy's best regions for food, wine, nature and elegant hotels.

Begin with three nights in Piedmont. The birthplace of the Slow Food movement, Piedmont is famous for fantastic cuisine and acclaimed red wines such as Dolcetto, Barbera and Barbaresco. During private touring with a local insider, enjoy in-depth access to the region’s top vineyards and restaurants. Go behind-the-scenes at renowned wineries and explore local towns and villages such as Alba, Barolo, La Morra and Castiglione Falletto. One day, also enjoy a private truffle hunting excursion in the forested hills. A highlight of your stay in Piedmont will be having the opportunity to try regional specialties such as vitello tonnato (veal with tuna sauce), agnolotti (a delicate, filled pasta) and gianduja (chocolate with hazelnuts).

Next, you will be transferred to Portofino for a stay at Hotel Splendido, a glamorous retreat perched high above the village and its harbor. One day, enjoy a private excursion to the Cinque Terre—five tiny villages clinging to the rocky cliffs of the Mediterranean coast. Browse the villages and enjoy scenic walks along the sea through terraced vineyards and olive groves, citrus trees and Mediterranean scrub. Also enjoy time for swimming, sailing, shopping, leisurely walks, and superb dining.

Continue to Bologna, one of Italy’s great epicurean and culture capitals. During private touring, visit Bologna’s renowned markets, and tour the city’s historic and artistic highlights, such as grand churches, interesting museums, the Jewish quarter, and frescoed porticoes. One day, enjoy a private excursion to nearby Ravenna to see dazzling Byzantine-era mosaics.

Next, take a private culinary excursion to nearby Parma and Modena in Emilia-Romagna, perhaps the best-known gastronomic region in Italy, to visit producers of the region’s celebrated Parmesan cheese, prosciutto and balsamic vinegar. Continue to glorious Lake Garda, on the edge of the Dolomites, to enjoy the crystal-clear waters, spectacular scenery, and accommodation at one of Italy’s most exclusive luxury hotels.

The tour concludes in Milan to enjoy the treasures of the city, including the beautiful Duomo, the historic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II shopping arcade, the Pinacoteca di Brera museum, Fondazione Prada, the design districts, endless shops and restaurants, and more. Upon request, this tour can be extended to include time in Lake Como at Villa d’Este, where Artisans of Leisure can arrange exclusive private tours of private villas, gardens, palace interiors and other highlights on the lake.
