Visit the most beautiful cities in Italy

It would not surprise anyone to know that Italy has one of the finest foodie schools in the world. The Italian Academy of Cuisine was opened in 1953 to safeguard the traditions of Italian cuisine.

The mastermind and creator of Italian Week in Brisbane, Cav. Alessandro Sorbello, will be your host for what promises to be the trip of a lifetime. The first is only 5 weeks away, visiting world heritage cities, tasting the food of the region and absorbing the culture.

The 9th celebration of Italian Week 2015 surprised the organisers when 40,000 people turning up for the street fair in Newmarket Farm to end what was a wonderful week of all things Italian.

Catering had been organised for 9,000, but enough food was sent for, so all was well. Street musicians roamed around to a delighted crowd who sang and danced. Snappy Italian cars were on display to add to a day of brilliant sunshine and play. Put May next year in your diary for more things Italian.

Tuscany is called the birthplace of the Renaissance. Chianti is known worldwide, but it is just one of the remarkable wines from this region. Florence, the capitol and heart of Tuscany, is one of the most visited cities in the world with over 1.8 million visitors a year. Its history stretches from 1300B.C. a centre for music, literature, fashion and cuisine. The first Duke of Tuscany was Cosimo de 'Medici in 1569.

The first tour is starting on August 29th this year for 7 days returning September 5th. This is a tour with a difference. You will be staying at charming Tuscan farmhouses, all meals included. Many recommended by the Italian Academy of Cuisine, of which Alessandro was the Australian delegate from 2009-13, so you can be sure you will have the best food representing the region and scenery famous worldwide for its beauty. The price for twin share is only $3,600. You may choose to travel early or stay on after the tour.

The numbers are limited so go to today, or talk to Alessandro on 0410243548. If this tour doesn't suit, 3 others have been planned; another this year and 2 for 2016 so you can plan ahead.
