Last October, I brought Edible Boston readers on an eleven-day tour through Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany (to read all about it, click here). It was such a success, we’re doing it again.

But this time, instead of visiting the north in the fall, we’ll head south in the summer!

Join us in late June 2020 for nine days in Campania and Puglia, visiting artisan food and wine producers, exploring bustling cities, fishing villages and tucked-away towns throughout Southern Italy. Our Tour Director from the last trip, Antonio Cappella, will be leading us through his own native region, so we’ll have an expert on board.

First, we’ll tour the markets of Naples, enjoying the region’s most famous delicacies: pizza napoletana, sticky-sweet babá pastries, freshly caught seafood and vibrant, fragrant citrus. We’ll stay seaside on the Sorrento Peninsula tasting limoncello and tomatoes and learning to make our own fresh mozzarella.

Moving east towards Puglia, we’ll stay in an elegant, rustic masseria—a boutique hotel based on an ancient farm of almond, citrus and olive groves. With a swimming pool and views of the sea, the Masseria Montenapoleone will be our home base for the next 5 nights. Each day brings a new adventure into the pastoral countryside, exploring the UNESCO-recognized trulli houses, touring a seaside village, traversing centuries-old vineyards, learning the history of Puglia’s olive oil production and experiencing hands-on cooking classes.

Then it’s back to Naples for one last special evening before returning home.

As the departure date nears, our friends at Go Ahead will help us add more small food producer visits, filling out the itinerary in true Edible Boston fashion. Our tours are custom-designed to suit our readers: You're an intelligent, well-traveled and food-obsessed bunch, and our in-depth itineraries reflect that. Sign up now to secure your spot and take advantage of the best pricing, splitting your payments into monthly installments.
