Discover a New Destination
Offered through our Virtuoso partner Access Culinary Trips, our Italy culinary tour is ideal for those wishing to discover authentic Italy through meaningful connections with the locals and unique, hand-curated activities. Unlike some Italy tours, we go beyond the traditional highlights of Tuscany, using our insider access to give you a glimpse into the real Italy. Our signature cooking classes, incredible guides, and charming accommodations will allow you to enjoy the must-see sights of Tuscany along with exclusive experiences you won’t find anywhere else.
All of our culinary vacations include a rich combination of delicious ingredients: expert cooking classes, visits to flourishing farms and vibrant markets, and world-class cuisine!
Experience the luxury of our Virtuoso partner Azamara small ships, who's motto is "Explore Further" with the unparalleled itineraries, immersive cultures, and authentic service. The initial layers of a city, including its people, buildings, and shops - can be seen by anyone, with each person having a similar view. Inspiration is found when one goes deeper - beyond the surface of a city. Explore the world within the world, while discovering more about yourself. With overnight stays and docking at smaller, less-traveled ports, Azamara® invites you to step ashore as an insider and Explore Further.
Destination Immersion® experiences are only the beginning, and Azamara is excited to introduce the next level of immersive experiential travel.
This new collection of excursions and activities from independent, local tour operators will take you deeper into the heart of local life with exclusive events and activities, all focused around immersing you in the arts, culture, history, and natural beauty of your destinations.
We give you more time in ports and overnight stays than other cruise lines, so you can spend more time immersed in the culture, cuisine, scenery, and people of your destinations. We also take you to ports where larger ships won’t fit, such as the heart of Venice, Amalfi, and Crete, or even to the doorstep of Bangkok (while other large cruise lines dock a few hours away). More time to explore? It’s the Azamara difference.
So much more than just a way to get from port to port, we’ve crafted an onboard experience akin to a stay in the world’s most exclusive hotels. Our ships—Azamara Journey® and Azamara Quest®—have been completely redesigned to exude modern elegance and bring inspiration from the world onboard, a vision we incorporated again with the Azamara PursuitSM.
Why travel actively? Freedom... discovery... energy... inspiration... engagement... serendipity. These are some of the words clients use to describe why they love exploring by bike and on foot with our Virtuoso partner Backroads.
Active travel is about journeying through a fascinating region under your own power. On foot and on a bike, you can really get a visceral sense of place. Without any filters, you're free to truly be where you are. The wind in your face. The sun on your back. Reconnecting with yourself and others. The feeling that right now, and for the next few days, you control your own destiny. And always just ahead, the next unexpected moment you'll carry with you forever: a ruined castle shrouded in mist as the sun appears over the mountains... a flock of birds rising in a shimmering cloud from a vast river delta... a waiter lighting lamps on the café tables, saluting the village priest as he climbs the cathedral steps...
For nearly 40 years, Backroads has been setting the stage for moments like these in every corner of the globe—raising the bar that all such travel should aspire to. And while it may sound like boasting, we don't think anyone does it better.
