Italia Gastronomica, incoming tour operator for the whole of Italy, specialised in the food and wine sector, was started in 2001 with the intention of proposing to individuals and small groups various sensorial experiences in the world of taste and Italian food traditions, offering a top-level service which is tailor-made to suit every need.
In the era of emotional globalization, true luxury consists in experiencing something typical, traditional and unusual.
Italia Gastronomica is for those visitors who are fascinated by the magic of Italy with its traditions and products, who desire to travel in the most exclusive way with the constant support of a local bilingual trip leader and who wish to stay in the most fascinating hotels and historical houses. Italia Gastronomica is for travellers who want the certainty that every detail of their trip is taken care of in order to guarantee a memorable stay, for those who appreciate it when an Italia Gastronomica representative is available for emergencies 24 hours a day during their entire Italian tour. Italia Gastronomica is for those who love to observe at close hand the work of wine and food producers that open their wineries and food production stores to visitors for an experience that other travellers may not have access to.
The different formats that have been exclusively created and customised by Italia Gastronomica are unique experiences, rendered original by the particular tension that comes from combining “knowing” with “tasting”. Adding to the prestige of the experiences offered is the contribution of a team of over 400 “taste experts”, who are both witness to, and protagonists of, Italian excellence in food.
Italia Gastronmica was created by Alessandra Gandini, MBA Columbia Business School of New York and a marketing expert for important international companies and by Giovanni Guffanti Fiori who represents the fifth generation of a family of food artisans from the best culinary tradition.
