Mediterranean gastronomic tours

There is something about just being in Sicily that makes you hungry. The abundant lemon and olive groves, sloping terraces of vines plump with juicy grapes, market stalls heaped high with delicious cheeses and cured meats and the exciting variety of fresh local fish glistening in a sea of ice all combine to make you want to experience each one of the island's vibrant culinary traditions.

As you travel through the ever-changing landscape, from the bustling markets of Syracuse to the vine-clad slopes of Mt. Etna, you will discover Bronze Age civilisations and stunningly well preserved Greek temples, view world-famous Roman mosaics and visit some of the most beautiful baroque towns in Europe. Each day tasting some of the gastronomic highlights that this glorious island has to offer. More about this Gastronomic tour of Sicily....

Alongside the archaeological and cultural sites Peter Sommer Travels visit, good food plays a key role in the design of the tours and gulet cruises. The team believe meals are much more than a practical necessity: they are a pleasure to be shared with their guests and moreover a central aspect in experiencing the local culture and the area's gastronomic wealth and heritage. As such all trips are considered to be a culinary exploration.

The company offers a growing range of special gastronomy-themed tours and cruises. Like all its trips, they are centred on expert-guided visits to important and beautiful ancient sites. At the same time, they offer guests a deeper understanding of the local culinary tradition. By exploring local markets, picking wild foods, visiting traditional producers and participating in the preparation of delicious meals, you will get to enjoy some of the highlights of each region's culinary culture. 

A voyage of discovery through Turkish Mediterranean cuisine. There are countless delights you will see and taste on this tour; from the daily dishes the on-board cook prepares with fresh local ingredients, to cooking demonstrations in traditional restaurants, and getting hands-on to create some excellent regional delicacies.
