My Culinary Trip with Acanela Expeditions was worth every Penny! Acanela had connections with people and places I could have never found on my own. In fact, many of the cities we visited I had been to before but still felt as though I was visiting a new city. My dreams came true being able to learn to cook at a real Italian Farm To Table Restaurant! We were able to attend many food tours at try some of the most famous foods at some of the best restaurant venues! I loved my Culinary Trip to Italy and would highly recommend that everyone visit Italy!
