Why Le Marche?

This undiscovered valley is filled with a rich cultural history, wonderful local festivals, and fascinating archaeological sites. Cities like Rome and Venice are beautiful and a wonderful part of Italian culture, but if you want to experience something different, look no further than Le Marche. While you take in the sites, fill up on some of the best food and wine that Italy has to offer, all guided by your personal tour guide and International Sommelier, Piero.

What do you get with an Internationally Certified Sommelier as your guide in a small town in Italy? Truffle hunts, wine lessons, and meticulously planned wine and menu pairings to give you a unique 5-star dining experience. Piero meets with every chef prior to your tour to hand-pick the perfect Italian wines – not for each meal, but for each course! Sit back, relax, and let your taste buds enjoy!
