On Annie’s Italy we will take you on a food journey like no other where you will truly experience food, wine and the Italian way of life with our family that will make your heart sing.
Life is about human connection and that is what Annie’s Italy is all about. I am passionate about leaving our guests with the true authenticity and heritage of the Veneto region.
Join me where my family experiences especially food and wine when growing up in Australia were strongly linked to my grandparents heritage back in Italy and in particular the Veneto region located in the far north east of the country. This region is steeped in ancient food and wine traditions just important now as they were thousands of years ago
We will plunge ourselves down the rabbit hole to discover connections, heritage, friendship, traditions and a whole lot more
Food and wine have played an important role in Venetian culture for centuries. Get up close and personal to those local heroes who are continuing the traditions of their ancestors from centuries ago. This journey will leave you with the true essence of Northern Italy and in particular Veneto
Annie will take you on a food exploration highlighting the regions famous food producers. Dishes she grew up with in Australia are everyday staples in the Veneto from the delicious tiramisu to Risi e Bisi. The Adriatic sea provides the finest seafood whilst the Alps are home to cheeses like Asiago
I loved this tour with Annie’s Italy, it was the highlight of my holiday. Annie was amazing and so friendly that we felt like one big family. We went to so many gorgeous little villages that normally you wouldn’t see on a bigger tour and ate at delicious restaurants and tasted so many fantastic wines. We even got to tour through cheese and prosciutto factories! Thanks Annie x
Wonderful tour, lots of food, wine & walking. A great trip to see, smell and taste the delicious produce of the Veneto Region. Such fabulous people on our small tour. Annie & Filipo were an excellent team organising the daily tours, meals and wonderful accommodation.
We had the best time on Annie's Italy tour,as we learnt to appreciate the best wine,food and produce Italy has to offer,and the dedication from the family's who produce the food is amazing,not to mention the beautiful traditional family restaurants and fabulous accommodation in the gorgeous Veneto area.
We can highly recommend this tour, thank you so much Andrea and Fillipo, it was the best.
A HUGE thank you Annie for this wonderful tour. The memories we will take away with us will be with us forever.
Again, thank you for making (Annies Venetian) the Food tour such a wonderful trip. It was way beyond our expectations…. delicious food, fabulous wine, excellent company at really interesting locations! Plus it was brilliantly organised and most of all, you made it fun Andrea. It was worth every cent. Bravo!

The small group was what attracted us first... Annie’s meticulous research and planning... the laughs, the wine... no, no the Prosecco! To taste and experience the best of the best was quite simply - The Best! And then of course there was the food! Such variety... such seemingly out of the way places to eat - local, traditional and meeting the people who cared most about their products - the cheese and wine makers who are so passionate and inspiring. The amazing scenery of the Veneto region and the foothills of the Dolomites is spectacular. The accommodation is both first class and homely. The best bit - no crowds of tourists. Italy as you imagine it! Italy at it’s finest. If you’re time poor or just want to see another side of Italy - then this is the holiday for you. Fabulous!
This was our chance to dive deeper into Italy, away from the crowds. The wine, food and accommodation were superb of course. The unexpected revelation was the beautiful countryside and towns of the Veneto region, which not only provided a captivating experience, but also gave us a sense of Veneto’s history and people. Annie and her family in Italy were delightful and welcoming. The passion of the food and wine producers shone through. The whole tour was a joy that has stayed with us ever since.
If you only have 9 days, not 9 weeks to experience the ‘real Italy’ let Annie take you. We (mother & daughter) were lucky enough to travel with Annie on her May 2017 tour. What a brilliant trip it was. The people, the places, the food and the wine were all wonderfully Italian. Being home now for a couple of months, the holiday continues through the culinary tips and tricks we experienced. If you are looking for a small, happy, cultural, foodie tour, experiencing the Northern Italy that is in Annie's heart, and now in ours, we simply have no hesitation in recommending "Annie's Italy”.
