Maybe Emilia-Romagna’s best time for gluttons and gastronauts, Italian Days’ take on the region’s most popular day trip – the parmigiano reggiano, balsamic vinegar and prosciutto combo tour – is the brain child of charismatic owner Alessando Martini’s decade-long palette-pleasing perfection.

You'll wolf down all of the region’s specialities at their source, accompanied by fascinating, informative and hilarious commentary courtesy of the charming guides before sabring wines on the terrace at your decadent agriturismo lunch overlooking the countryside and Modena beyond. If it's truffle season, you'll eat the price of the tour in expensive fungi alone! Skip breakfast, cancel dinner plans.
