Milan is a skyscraper metropolis, a city half avant-garde, half provincial, a mixture of risotto and steel.”
- Alberto Lattuada

Tours of Northern Italy
In 2019, we ventured a few hours South of Milan to Liguria. Delicious and culturally rich, Liguria cuisine mixes old world flavors from the hills and fresh seafood from the Mediterranean Sea.
