Every year Gourmet Getaways founder and president Marlene Iaciofano accompanies a small group of travelers on a unique trip to one of Italy’s top locations. Itineraries include all the best Italy has to offer – planned, organized and personalized by a travel expert for the ultimate experience!


I traveled to Italy with Marlene in the fall of 2009. She developed the perfect itinerary, which included wine tastings, sightseeing, cooking classes and free time to absorb the culture and shop. The trip was extremely enjoyable, personalized and organized. I would recommend consulting with Marlene prior to your trip to Italy. You won’t be disappointed with the personalized service, attention to detail, knowledge of Italy and a fabulous itinerary.
