Italian Food Vacation?

Has anyone taken one of the Italian food vacations? The trip to Bologna/Emilia Romagna sounds like what I'm looking for, but I'd like to hear from someone who has booked a trip through them.

I'd also welcome other recommendations for similar Italian culinary trips (lots of good eating and some cooking where advanced skills are not necessary).

I'll be traveling alone, so a situation where there are other singles would be best. Thanks!

Hi H,

They don't have a single's supplement, which is certainly a plus.

Have you called to get the names of the hotels?

How interested are you in seeing factories and farms and doing your own cooking, as different from other items of cultural interest.

You can always eat well in Bologna.

Nice itinerary on the web site. I'm diong a solo trip to Italy this May and will spend 6 nights in Bologna. I haven't started my research for cooking schools yet, but I'm interested in a 1-2 day class, if I can afford it. Anyone have recommendations for a short class?

May I suggest It has great reviews on and the place is exquisite. No supplement for single travelers either.
