Travcoa, the world leader in luxury travel, presents Italy's Heart & Soul, a definitive Italian experience for foodies, cultural enthusiasts, and classic car connoisseurs.
The exquisite 14-day small-group Escorted Journey begins in Stresa, which is known for breathtaking Alpine scenery and opulent hotels.
After several days in Venice, guests head to Bologna for an authentic dinner at the home of an Italian family, and say "arrivederci" in Rome with a tour in an open-roof chauffeured vintage Fiat 500.
The passion of Italian cuisine is explored with long lunches and wine tasting in the Chianti and Valpolicella regions and Travcoa's generous Dine-Around program. In addition to fantastic food, Italy's Heart & Soul also features the country's iconic automobile tradition. Guests will not only have private access to the Ferrari and Lamborghini factories, but will be able to drive one of the vintage vehicles.
"Over the centuries, Italians have developed a highly refined sense of style," stated Jerre Fuqua, President of Travcoa. "Italy's Heart & Soul not only explores some of the country's finest dining and fastest cars, but it also offers the richest accommodation for the discerning traveler."
Limited to just 18 guests, the 14-day journey departs June 7, June 21, September 13, and September 20, 2013 and is priced from $15,290 per person based on double occupancy.
