Neapolitan Pizza
Let the flavors of Italy dance in your mouth and sing in your heart™
on a Ciao Laura Culinary Vacation in Italy!™

Ciao Laura Culinary Vacations in Italy offers daily and weekly programs to include hands-on cooking lessons, foodie tours, winery visits, market tours, excursions to artisan cheese and olive oil producers, limoncello factory tours and more!

In addition to the offers on our website, we design and arrange custom culinary-based programs throughout Italy.

Neapolitan Pizza

Our programs are just as much about the culture as the food and wine and are a perfect way to embrace the Italian culture, if for only just a day. The beauty of our programs is that you don't need to be a professional chef or speak Italian to be fully immersed in the heart of the culture - it's cuisine.

Our culinary vacations allow travelers a wonderful combination of delicious food and wine experiences, as well as time for excursions to beautiful, historical landmarks to enjoy the BEST OF ITALY with our local friends!

Imagine spending your holiday learning how to make a true "Neapolitan Pizza," visiting the ruins of Pompeii, gawking at the magnitude of the Colosseum in Rome, climbing the Leaning Tower of Pisa, experiencing the enormity of Michelangelo's David in Florence and enjoying shopping and sightseeing on the world famous Isle of Capri.

There is so much to do and see in Italy, so let's get started, shall we? We have listed a number of our CULINARY FOOD AND WINE TOURS AND COOKING SCHOOL VACATION PROGRAMS, we have so much to offer - and we think you'll like what you see!

We invite you to pack your bags and indulge yourself in La Dolce Vita; all you need is a passport and a passion for the sweet life and we'll do the rest!
