This trip will focus on the capital, Zagreb, where we’ll spend two days focusing on the Habsburg and Ottoman heritage, and the Istrian peninsula, which is said by locals to be the gourmet capital of the country.

Come visit Tuscany and Emilia Romagna the Zingerman’s way. We’ll go behind the scenes and visit traditional small producers of some of the region’s finest foods – from the massive wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano, to the beautiful, small bottles of real balsamic vinegar, from Chianti Classico wines and artisanal olive oil to the melt-in-your-mouth prosciutto crudo. And we’ll roll up our sleeves and enjoy Tuscan cooking lessons in a 15th century villa in the rolling hills outside of Florence. Learn more »

Traveling to Sicily without a guide can be a bit intimidating. The mythology of the island's passions along with the reality of its closed, insular culture can make it hard to get below the surface of tourist travel. Going to Sicily alone can make you feel like you stood on top of a large mountain of culture and food that was buried beneath you, hidden. Let us reveal Sicily’s food to you.
