Club ABC Tours is thrilled to offer a new series of culinary trips, Lidia's Italy inspired trips, combining gastronomy with art history. Lidia Bastianich is a noted television chef and best selling cookbook author and one of the best loved Public Television personalities today.
Lidia's Italy Inspired 8-day culinary tours feature the regions of Umbria and Emilia Romagna that will delight foodies and non-foodies alike. Full itineraries include cooking classes, guided tours of art-rich cities and many behind-the scenes visits to some of the regions' gastronomic treasures, many run by personal friends of Lidia's. Small group cooking classes are taught by English-speaking professional chefs and feature many recipes from Lidia's latest cookbooks. Along the way, enjoy countless meals at carefully selected places that capture the true spirit of Lidia's Italy. "Umbria and Emilia Romagna are at the core of the Italian culinary and gastronomic tradition," notes Tom Paris, Co-President of the member-based travel club.

Prices start at $2999 per person for the 8-day the Umbria Culinary Adventure and $3429 for the Emilia Romagna Culinary Adventure.
