Italy: Cities, Culture & Cuisine
April 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a virtual Travel Geeks on 27 April, when our expert panel will help us discover a different side to Italy. It’s easy to feel you know Italy: whether that’s through city breaks to the big-hitters of Rome, Venice or Florence, trips to the beautiful Tuscan countryside or exploring its many gastronomic highlights via pizza in Naples or limoncello on the Amalfi coast — all of which are wonderful. But when it’s time to return, there’s a myriad of experiences you may not have considered — and our panel have lots of ideas to help you rediscover Italy.
If it’s a city break you’re longing for, there are so many possibilities beyond the obvious — we’ll discuss lesser-known places to try, plus the best way to plan a city-hopping trip, whether you want to explore cultural hotspots or combine a relaxing break with the faster pace of city life. We’ll talk about exploring Italy by train, taking advantage of the modern, high-speed rail network to jump between major cities or taking picturesque journeys via slow train to smaller towns and the practicalities of making the trip a no-fly option.
We’ll look ahead to future cultural highlights, unearth exciting events and ideas you may not have discovered and find out about the very best of Italian culture.
Any discussion of Italy has to include food: our experts will look beyond the obvious to talk about traditions, dishes and delicious ingredients you can find on your travels.
Whether you’re thinking of a culture-packed weekend, a luxurious summer holiday or an inspiring exploration of new places, our panel will help you plan a perfect trip, with top tips, exciting itineraries and getting you in the mood for travelling once more.
Join us from 19.00 on Tuesday 27 April. Travel Geeks is just an hour long and offers you the chance to hear from our experts and join in the lively debate.
