You will be picked up either in Bologna with a brief market visit before heading out to the Apennine mountains. There you will check into your hotel and then be picked up for a private dinner at the chef's mountain retreat.

Day 2 to Day 9

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel. Then the chef will pick you up and take you on your day's journey. Will it be a cooking class? How about a picnic in the woods? Perhaps you might like to visit the home of a Renaissance painter. Maybe spend a day in Venice or visit a local winery. You’ll decide what you want to do and where you want to go. In the evening you will return for your private dinner with the chef at his retreat or one of his favorite trattoria.

Day 10

After breakfast, you’ll check out and if time allows it, you will head to Ravenna where you’ll visit the Basilica of San Vitale and its Byzantine mosaics.
