If you've ever dreamed of a fun tour of Italy that focuses on what's important -- the food and wine! -- then this is the trip for you.
The tour leader, Bev Gruber, is hilariously fun, and very experienced. She's led these trips for years, and this is after running the cooking school at Larry's Market. She knows food.
What's more, her groups are small, so you don't tromp through some of the most beautiful places on earth with a herd of tourists.
She has a Web site with photos and itineraries, and is currently offering an Internet special on some tours: http://www.gourmetravel.com
