Who doesn't love Limoncello and mozzarella di bufala? And how about all those renowned seafood delicacies and gourmet pasta dishes? This four-day adventure is your chance to see and learn where they come from, how they evolved, how they are made, and best of all, how they taste at the origin! You'll stay in Minori, a pretty little village right on the shore of the Amalfi Coast. Unlike its more famous neighbors Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, this is an authentic place where real people live and go about their lives just as their families have done for centuries. Your private excursions and visits will introduce you to many of those people, whose flair for communication and simple sharing is known across the planet. Looking for a Jet Set retreat where you'll hobnob with rich foreigners and hear not a word of Italian? Then do not consider this tour! But if you want to experience the real Italy, learn about its culture and interact with its citizens, then you could not ask for a more rewarding and budget-minded trip than this one.
