We did this tour as an excursion through our cruise ship not Culture Discovery but we thoroughly enjoyed this medieval town so much we had to review. Orvieto is a fortress city situated on the flat summit of a large butte of volcanic tuff with almost vertical cliffs which makes this site one of the most dramatic cities in Europe,... More

Never wanting to book a " typical " tour, we were delighted when Culture Discovery Vacations popped up on our emails. We booked our past September trip a year ago August, and since that day we have been extremely impressed w/ he CDV company! Not only did our booking go smoothly and professionally, but since we were landing in Rome... More

Culture Discovery goes beyond any expectation you may have had. If you love food and wine do a Culture Discovery vaca. I will definitely be doing another.

I chose Culture Discovery because the website promised an immersion into Italian culture and authentic cooking and was exactly what I was interested in. I booked the trip a year in advance and was concerned that because I was so excited about this trip, perhaps I would build it up and end up being disappointed. That was NOT the case.... More

I stumbled onto the Culture Discovery site about six years ago, and I have fantasized about the trip to Soriano ever since. As you might imagine with that long to day dream about it I had quite high expectations, and the actual trip BLEW THEM OUT OF THE WATER. This was simply the most seamless and stress less adventure I... More

A true immersion into Italian culture. Not only does Culture Discovery make sure you see all of the important sights in the area, the staff includes a family of three sisters and a daughter (and some of their extended family) to make sure you feel like you are part of a real Italian Family. So much fun!! And you learn... More

We just finished a week long cooking school with Culture Discovery Vacations on the Amalfi Coast "Cooking in Paradise on the Amalfi Coast"and it was wonderful. We were picked up at the Naples airport by our hostess Lisa and brought to our villa in Amalfi. It was our first trip to Italy and the location is truly spectacular. My only... More

Hi Kurt, Thank you for writing us such a great review! I love Amalfi, too and I feel the same way about the stairs!

My week in Soriano nel Cimino was a dream come true; and it exceeded all expectations! The people(Carla, Linda, Ilaria, Sergio, Katia, Rosaria), the food, the wine, the scenery, the churches, the history were amazing.

Traveling with Culture Discovery Vacations is always an adventure but we also learn so much along the way. How does balsamico get its distinctive flavour (and how to spot imposters!)? How do gondoliers balance on such narrow craft (we visited a gondola maker to learn the "physics")? How does a vintner ensure his organic wine stays pure (one winery ages... More
