Best place to go in Italy to experience food

Jump to last reply

I'm in the VERY preliminary stages of planning a 2-week trip to Italy in April 2012. My husband and I are in our 30s and would plan to visit the major cities (Venice, Florence, Rome) using a lot of info from this forum. (My husband has never been to Italy, and I have only been once in college where I backpacked quickly through Rome, Florence, and Cinque Terre.)

But we're also huge foodies, and I'm wondering what you think would be the best region to experience food - markets, restaurants, one-day cooking class, olive oil tastings, anything else.

Essentially, we want to spend some time in the countryside, and I had assumed we would do the agriturismo thing in Tuscany with visits to Tuscan hill towns, but now I wonder if there is something better for us if we are focused on food. Or can we get enough great food in the cities, that this shouldn't be the criterion that we use to choose our "country" time?

Thanks for your help!
