IZMZB Kitty Details

This trip is an overland trip run in an overland truck. In addition to paying for your trip, you're require to make a separate payment to your tour leader at the start of the trip, usually in USD. Kitties are flexible and change as prices are updated. Therefore you should check the latest kitty amount on this website before you depart.

A kitty is a group fund which covers all accommodation, meals while camping (not in hotels) and activities listed as included. It's a system unique to overlanding to provide the maximum flexibility and best value on the road (you get everything at cost price!). The kitty is your money, not ours, so any amount left over is divided among the group as a refund.

Daily Itinerary

Day 1 to 2:

Italian’s are the masters of creating simple dishes that sing with flavour. Regional, seasonal and as fresh as possible, Italy’s cuisine is hearty, satisfying and made with heart. Inspired by the kitchens of the nonna, Italy’s food is authentic and surprising – pizza and pasta are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the diverse array of unforgettable food you’ll find throughout Italy.

 

Day 3 to 4:

Explore an agriturismo and witness the regional tradition of olive-oil pressing. Head to ‘the jewel of Umbria’ for a tour of the local wineries and try tasty regional dishes that sample the best produce in the area, including truffles and cheese.

 

Day 5 to 6:

In the region famed for introducing bolognese sauce to the world, participate in a cooking class in the heart of a local food market after sampling Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and Prosciutto di Parma of the Emilia-Romagna region. Travel to an acetaia (vinegar loft) to learn about the production of Balsamic vinegar.

 

Day 7:

Wine and dine on delicious regional seafood in Italy’s most romantic city. Take a fabulous cicchetti (Venice’s answer to tapas) tour. Wind through ancient streets, taste local specialties and take a step through history at each restaurant and bar visited.

 

Day 8:

Head out into the agriturismo-rich area of Marca Trevigiana, famous for its sparkling Prosecco wines and divine local produce. Savour Monte Cesen’s delicious mountain cheeses on a visit to a local cheesemaker before visiting Cesare de Stefani’s salami ‘factory’. Stop in Treviso to sample the delectable gelato at Il Gelatiere. What's your flavour – chocolate, lemon, ricotta-infused fig jam? Warning: one will not be enough. See how this award-winning ice-cream is made and taste the delicious results. If you still have room, dine on a feast of Venetian specialties later in the day.

 

Day 9:

Chat to local farmers and follow your nose to the fish market all before breakfast begins. Then perhaps finish up this delicious adventure over an espresso and one of Venice’s sublime tiramisu.
