Food and Wine in the Dolomites
Saga Hosted Hotels
Experiencing another country’s culture isn’t always about sights and sounds – taste is also highly influential. But food holidays shouldn’t be about high-end restaurants - they’re about authentic flavours, smells, colours, and traditional techniques.
On this special interest holiday, not only will you eat well, you’ll be living like the locals, seeing where ingredients such as cheese, other local produce and wine are sourced, and even learning how to cook a dish or two. You will have the chance to sample a range of Italian dishes - and of course, take part in some wine tasting!
Leave Italy inspired to crack open your recipe book at home and get cooking...
