Going on vacation is a welcome break from day to day life. Going on a culinary vacation offers that break as well as the opportunity to immerse yourself into the cultural aspects of the region you are visiting with an experienced guide. A culinary vacation tuscany, for example, gives participants the opportunity to taste, pick and cook with the local ingredients that make up some of the most tasty and well-known dishes of Umbria.
Here are three things to expect while on a culinary vacation.
What is Included?
Every culinary trip is a little different from the next, but for the most part, the trip will include lodging, meals and cooking classes as well as transportation throughout the trip. Before you leave your deposit for the trip, if you have any doubts or questions about what is included, be sure to ask. Some trip organizers are specific about the inclusions, while others may not be. Often, transportation to and from the starting and ending destination is not included. This is especially true if the group is flying out of an international airport but you live in a smaller city.
A Full Itinerary
Your cost for the trip covers the major portions of the scheduled activities. The higher the price, the more activities you should expect, and therefore, a packed itinerary. Again, every trip organizer is different, so if you would like to know what the trip itinerary includes, be sure to ask. Every day will most likely include a class, sight seeing and travel.
If you are taking a culinary vacation to a destination that is foreign to you, it is probably because you expect to experience everything that culture has to offer, especially the tastes. In Italy, you may be asked to pick your own cheese, olives and fish, and then, incorporate them into your meal during your cooking class for maximum cultural immersion.
A culinary vacation tuscany offers a truly unique experience that should be memorable with a full itinerary of activities and maximum opportunity for cultural immersion.
