About the Day Tours

Our “Tastes of Abruzzo” tour will show you how to truly experience the undiscovered gem of central Italy. During your trip to Italy, discover the Teramo province in the northern part of Abruzzo, where you will be offered private tastings of fine local extra virgin olive oils, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo wines and local seasonal produce.

The Teramo province is painted with picturesque towns and medieval hilltop villages, and is well known for its truffles. If you’re searching for a truffle tour during your trip to Italy, look no further! Our “Tastes of Abruzzo” tour allows you to experience a private truffle hunt if the season is right, as well as a private cooking class with local Abruzzese ladies. Our food and wine tours are flexible, giving you time to immerse yourself in the rich history of a magnificent fortress, stroll through a colourful outdoor market, and (in true Abruzzese style) be wined and dined in sensational slow food restaurants when on your trip to Italy.

Why Abruzzo?

Abruzzo is a region in central Italy and has both mountainous and coastal areas. Abruzzese cuisine uses a wide variety of fresh ingredients such as lamb, pork, seafood, saffron, truffles, tomato and of course fine extra virgin olive oil.

If you reserve your place with Touring Abruzzo, you will indulge in traditional fare. Whether you crave the grilled lamb skewers known as “Arrosticini”, or dream about a delicious plate of “Spaghetti alla Chitarra” , Abruzzo’s diverse cuisine has something for everyone.

This is a fully escorted, all inclusive small group tour (no more than 12 guests…ever) and will be led by Luciana.
