This unique, extraordinary cooking and wine tour of private, small group experiences takes you off the tourist path on the Amalfi Coast and beyond to the Campania region’s top wine country and to Paestum, home to magnificent Greek temples.

In fun, authentic, rich adventures, get to know an incredible variety of local people in their kitchens, lemon groves, vineyards, farms and wine cellars, and even some water buffaloes.

Cook with three delightfully different people: an excellent home cook on their farm of lemon groves above the Amalfi Coast, a friendly chef at his restaurant in Ravello with absolutely stunning coast views and a lively woman on her farm near Paestum where she owns 900 water buffaloes.

Indulge in lemon pastries at one of Italy’s top pastry shops after a beautiful walk down through picturesque hamlets, lemon and olive trees to the sea. Visit a prestigious winery high above the coast with 400 year old vines and two top wineries with exciting, one of a kind cellar “décor” in the Altripalda and Taurasi areas.

In Paestum watch artisan cheese makers go through all the steps in making mozzarella cheese and eat the freshest mozzarella you’ve ever experienced.

Of course, you also explore Amalfi, Ravello and Positano with your local guide/friend and learn about local life and lore.
