Calabria Food and Wine Experience on the Cedri Riviera Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01661
  • Type : Private
  • Duration : N/A
  • Meeting Place : Hotel - Rail - Maratea Port


This is an incredible food and wine experience that we have put togehter with local producers of ingredients unique to this part of the world on the north-west coast of the magnificent Calabria region known as the Cedri Riviera - just south of Maratea 20 Km. 

This area in 2020 is going to be the new back-drop for the James Bond film series that is shooting in this area right now in 2019 with our help.  By the time the film comes out, like many other areas in Italy it will be over-run with tourists, so the time to come is now and you do not want to miss during your time in southern Italy.  Departing from Praia a Mare, Maratea, San Nicola Arcella this tour is as much a sightseeing tour along this beautiful coast as it is an exploration of the incredible foods, wines and liquors produced in this region which originate from the local products which are 100% organic. 

Our day begins when we pick you up at your hotel, rail or port at Maratea or Diamante.  Depending on where we are picking you up, the order of the towns we visit will vary according to location, but they will include some of the highlights of the area and the incredible scenery which includes Praia a Mare and great photo opportunities over Dino Island, Scalea, Santa Maria Del Cedro, Cirella, Diamante and Maiera.  You can read about all of these places on the Calabria section of our website where we have documented all of these towns, the owners of the company having lived in this area for 20 years.

This coast is beautiful with many historic sites to take in, though this is a day full of wonderful visual sites as well as flavors you will not soon forget that are unique to this area of southern Italy. 

The morning part of the tour includes visits to the various towns in this area which will last for about 2 hours, after which we head to the Arieste Farm, in Italian known as the Fattoria di Arieste where the serve organic fruits and vegetables direct from their garden including the Cedro fruit which is a speciality to this area - a cross between a lemon and a lime used as a fragrance in many famous parfumes around the world.  This is a property that is locally run and does not have a website right now, so we refer to our partner site at Visitsitaly for explanation about this property at the present moment.  

A tour through the gardens, pasta making and cedro-fruit liquor demonstration will be had throughout the rest of the day in no particular order as we will conduct the experience according to the meal we plan based on your diet and tastes. 

This experience will include a visit also to the museum of Cedro and the museum of Peperoncino which are unique to this area showcasing the various ways in which these ingredients throughout Italy and the rest of the world are currently used in contemporary Italian gastronomy and gaining more notoriety by the day. 

Following lunch, time at the farm and visits to these magnificent locations we will get you back to where you need to be at the time you need to be!

Client Testimonials

I went to high school with the owner of the company who organized my honeymoon for myself and my now wife from Tokyo. We spent three short weeks seeing Piedmont and experiencing wine paradise there, then heading to Nice in France with our private driver and flying to Rome where honestly 4 days is NOT enough. They keep saying to spend more time and we could not agree more! You need to spend more time in many of these places. Over the course of our time in Italy we saw so much and loved it all, though Sicily and the Mondello estate they had at us, 2 minutes walk from the prettiest beach in the world was our favorite and Roberto the owners there who know Jess and her team made it so wonderful for us! We are planning on going back and even considering moving to Italy we had such a great time!
