Tastes of Rome & Sicily
At the very heart of Italian culture is its passion for food and wine (and fabulous fashion of course).  On this  divine new tour get ready to savour delicious wines, mouth-watering gastronomic delights, Roman glamour and a lot of fun....  

Combining the talents of Travelling Divas and the expertise of Uncorked & Cultivated's Master of Wine, Peter Scudamore-Smith, this tour will showcase some of the best these extraordinary destinations have to offer.

Rome is the ultimate destination to start an Italian adventure - the eternal city, and the best to experience 'la dolce vita'.....

In Rome delight in private shopping with access to local artisans and the boutique recommendations of an Italian fashion journalist (she is opening her little black book just for us).  Enjoy private tours to the Gallery of Mirrors and the Vatican with our passionate guide, who loves all things Roman.   Relax in the luxury of the Sofitel Villa Borghese, and indulge in authentic dining experiences from a local trattoria to a gorgeous catered picnic in the Borghese Gardens.  Combine all of this with a vintage vespa tour of Rome where you pillion behind a lovely Italian, with plenty of time to create your own adventures, and you have the perfect 'Roman Holiday"... and then we head to Sicily!

In Sicily, it is all about the wine, food and 'introduction' only exclusive visits to wineries that only Peter can gain entry to.  We will be taken through some of the wine regions of the island's east and south coast for a unique and exclusive experience for lovers of wine and food.  We'll discover Taormina, a jewel-like village tucked into the side of a hill, with sea views that go forever.  This is followed by Siracusa an ancient city that is so divine and has so much history you won't know where to look. We enjoy the high-altitude Etnean slopes, visit Michelin-starred restaurants, sample the traditional reds of the south and we have the chance to indulge in some natural and amphora wines.

Hotels are a mix of 5-star glamour in Rome to divine, luxurious old-world hotels in Sicily, with sweeping views of the sea and inland at a renovated Locanda.  We offer quality experiences and plenty of time to explore and discover the history, architecture and traditions, creating your own memories to last a lifetime.

A mix of culture, history, 'insider access', typical food, local wine and shopping you will not want to leave and just linger for a little longer...

Join Andrea and Peter on this amazing journey where you will be cared for from start to finish with personalised attention and enjoy an incredible journey through Rome & Sicily.
