Here’s what makes our Alla Campagna Experiences unique:

    • Alla Campagna Experiences are about cultural immersion, rather than photography.
    • Our experiences highlight the local cuisine, wine and spirits, people and more.
    • You can expect a half-day of scheduled activities, and half-day of free time, on average.
    • Destinations are more easily accessible from the U.S., Northern Africa, and certainly Europe, as they’re concentrated in and around the Mediterranean.
    • Shorter trips of 7 – 10 days and stay in one, maybe two locations, so there’s less packing and unpacking.
    • Accommodations in unique, upscale properties, such as (each experience is different):
      • Private castles
      • Wine estates
      • Wonderfully converted mansions and villas
      • A parador (converted castle or monastery)
      • Gorgeous boutique hotels and other one-of-a-kind places
    • Depending on the experience, activities will include:
      • Wine and spirit tastings
      • Unique culinary experiences, cooking classes and demonstrations
      • Private lectures with local experts
      • Learn how they harvest and process the local specialties (and taste each)
    • Meet with local craftsmen and -women, often in their homes or places of business.
    • Limited to just 6 to 14 participants.
