Italy Olive Oil Tour

Let’s go straight to the source and discover olive oil from branch to bottle. We’ll travel to Italy and see ancient old growth olive groves and experience the regions olive oil was first discovered and enjoyed.

We’ll discover traditional production methods and groves planted with modern mechanics all with quality in mind. Diving into each region’s unique ingredients, and foods, while learning the people who create lovingly nourish and create them. Let’s go on a delicious adventure together!

What you’ll do

Join me on a true culinary adventure to Italy. Olive oil is considered the ‘liquid gold’ of Italy and features prominently in its cuisine. We will visit one of the finest olive producing regions of the country, nestled in the beautiful rolling hills between Florence and Rome. Against this breathtaking scenery, you will experience first-hand the olive growth and oil production process.

You will learn to discern good olive oil by its freshness, smell, texture and flavor; and sample some of the finest olive oils in the world. You will savour unforgettable meals featuring locally produced olive oils and wines while enjoying spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside.

This 7-day tour will take us from Rome to Fano, a small town just south of Venice on the Adriatic Coast of the country, where I first fell in love with olive oil.
