Exclusive Culinary Tours of Italy & Spain

Palmer’s has teamed up with Italian importer, aTTavola, to bring you a unique, one-of-a-kind culinary experience. Go behind the scenes of traditional artisan food producers in their homes and workshops; listen to their stories, learn about the food they make and taste all of it along the way. Spend hands-on time in the kitchen and learn how to prepare a traditional meal of the region. Dine at the finest local restaurants, many of them Michelin starred, and enjoy 3 to 4 courses paired with wine. You will learn about the culture through sampling traditional dishes specific to the region. Stay the night and relax at unique 4/5 star hotels with top notch amenities and excellent service.

Palmer’s Tours offers a one-of-a-kind travel experience to destinations around the world.

All of the below itineraries offer a brilliant balance between group and free time. We keep group sizes small, 6 to 12 guests, depending on the tour. We encourage the single traveler and do not charge a single supplement fee. Our guests are of a wide age range and share a love of exploring, learning, culture, food and wine. Over 80% of our guests have booked another tour with us—we think that speaks for the quality of our experience!
