Via Del Vino Food & Wine Tours was born from a lifetime of dreaming about Italy. After years of traveling to Italy and connecting with locals, Susan Guerra and her chef husband, Richard Corazza have partnered with a network of established Italian travel providers offering authentic, off-the-beaten-path experiences to help others make their Italian dreams a reality.
We offer half day walking, food and wine tours in the historic center of Perugia as well as customized, culinary getaways throughout Italy for intimate groups of 8 to 14 participants.
Our mission is to allow our guests to "drop in" to the experience of living in Italy. To "Eat, Drink and Be Italian" by enjoying incredible food and wine, meeting the locals and discovering the ancient sights of this endlessly fascinating country.
