Chef Jenna Arcidiacono of Amore Trattoria invites you to join our fifth Amore in Italy culinary adventure. We’ll visit two legendary destinations: the Cinque Terre and Lake Como.
The Cinque Terre is a magical stretch of coastline encompassing five fishing villages built on cliffs with pastel-colored buildings, grapevines and olive groves, and charming piazzas. Life centers around the Mediterranean sea with heart-stopping views and fabulous fresh seafood. The vast Cinque Terre National Park surrounds the stretch of coastline from Riomaggiore to Monterosso and the inland terraced gardens. This stretch of coastline is a UNESCO world heritage site, because it represents “the harmonious interaction between people and nature to produce a landscape of exceptional scenic quality.” It is truly a sight to behold and we’ll have four nights in the Cinque Terre to soak it in.
Lake Como is equally beautiful, the most spectacular of the northern Italian lakes positioned in the shadow of the Alps. Spend three nights in Bellagio, a charming town with cypress groves, gardens, and a waterfront of bobbing boats. The lake is 30 miles long and 1,350 feet at its deepest point. The majestic shores are peppered with gardens, estates, and villas. It’s a romantic destination, with an aristocratic 19th-century air.
Join Chef Jenna to eat well, cook local specialties, and enjoy la dolce vita from the Ligurian coast to Lombardy’s glacial lake region. Andiamo!
