“Investment in travel is an investment in yourself.” - Matthew Karsten
Guided Custom Adventures Private tours can be offered throughout the year, for proper planning a minimum 2 months notice required
Lazy Italian Culinary Adventures offers you the opportunity to travel with a small group of your own friends and have a real private experience. The week is designed just for you and your group's preference! Group size minimum is 6 participants, the max is up to you, but we have found that up to 12 or 14 is ideal. The location, just like the entire week, will be customized just for your group! We cater to your needs, likes, preferences and ideal travel experience. Excursions available include winery tours, cooking classes, market visits, restaurant visits, truffle hunting, museum visits and other non-culinary activities based on your particular likes and interests.
A private week with just your own group can be a unique experience that offers you lifelong memories! Ideal for milestone birthdays, graduations, large familiy gatherings or simply to celebrate life!
Think a glorious week of truffle hunting, wine tasting, regionally designed cooking lessons or visits to family-run specialty shops with your friends or family members, exclusive, just for you! Francesca, native Italian and owner of Lazy Italian Culinary Adventures joins you on this guided adventure, so you're never alone in a new country! She will expertly navigate the vendors, set up the excursions and customize your week! Ideal locations include a private villa in Chianti, a food-filled week in Bologna, an excursion in Sicily, sight-seeing all through Rome or a week in busteling Florence! Or, anywhere else you wish! This is, after all, your week!

Dreaming of a trip to Italy but don't know where to begin? Perhaps you've seen Under the Tuscan Sun one too many times and are thinking of heading there for your first trip. Or perhaps, there's the fountains of the Eternal City. The canals of Venice! The cuisine of Bologna! How about the mystery of Southern Italy with a trip to Sicily! Clearly, your options are limitless when it comes to Italy and planning a trip there can be incredibly overwhelming. How about letting a native Italian do all the planning for you? We design the itineraries based on your likes, make all of your reservations, connect you with locals and design a once in a lifetime experience. Let us do the work involved in travel planning so all you have to do is show up!
Our custom trips aren't "cut and paste," there is no set guide - they're tailored according to your needs, your likes and dislikes, your must-see sites and your must-avoid spots (if there are any in Italy!) Simply put, we listen to what you want and then carefully design an individual trip to match. Your trip is designed with the expertise that comes from having a native do the planning and from having traveled many times and lived there.
