La Bella Romagna

The Romagna region is the culinary heart of Italy, whose landscape is as rich as its food. The gregarious Romagnoli people are among the most welcoming in Italy. Join us to explore this magnificent area and sample its unique food and drink. You’ll fall in love with the region’s cheese, cold cuts, beef, pork, virgin olive oil, piadina bread and world class wines. Our 4 night / 5 day tour takes in Ravenna and several tiny hill top towns. We’ll eat in a range of eateries from traditional family run ‘osterie’ to elegant restaurants. We won’t neglect the region’s history and art. The powerful Monetfeltro and Malatesta families made the region’s cities important Renaissance centres. Many of the ‘greats’ left their mark, from Raffaello to Piero della Francesca, from Dante to Leondardo da Vinci. Romagna really is ‘bella’ in every way!
