Feast On History uses food, wine and art to explore the rich history of the Cilento. This tour has been crafted for curious travelers who want to eat and drink like the locals do in this beautiful, rural and coastal corner of Southern Italy.

Guests wake up to clear views of the Tyrrhenian Sea from their own private terrace. They walk the ruins of the majestic Greek temples at Paestum with an art historian, then experience the architecture of Zaha Hadid in Salerno. Every day of this 7-night/8-day tour has been designed to reveal the underpinnings of this culturally rich region.
