http://DivoraRoma.com - An All-inclusive Culinary Voyage Through
 

The Divora series is an intimately curated culinary & cultural travel adventure. From solo to eight guests for one week, in Rome and throughout Italy

--------
Divora
 is Italian for Devour.
We devour food and culture, both.
--------

Join me on my original DivoraRoma (one week in Rome) and in my other Divora travels around Italy.

My name is Alice. I am an Italian citizen (born in the Eternal City of Rome), residing in the beautiful greenery of Portland, Oregon USA. Come along to my birth-city and country, as I take you on a trip of a lifetime, perfectly curated and custom made to show you the real culinary and cultural world my country is loved for. You'll be my guest and you'll live as a local, for one week, all-inclusive.

Our adventures fall in the spring and fall seasons, year after year. Each week-long adventure is customized to be unique, to encourage you to join me on multiple trips all around Italy. Each region in Italy has distinct culinary and cultural habits, all worth exploring. Imagine yourself learning to shop for, prep and cook local dishes with the help of trusted local chefs. Imagine yourself tasting delicious wines in the countryside hills outside of Rome. Imagine yourself walking around Rome, or a hilltop Tuscan town, or a seaside Sicilian village as you learn about the history and culture. Imagine yourself on a shopping spree throughout Italy's vintage markets to find classic and timeless Italian-made fashion. 

The Divora series curates and organizes it all for you, so you may simply meet us in Italy... and enjoy!

Helpful Information:

Plan your trip

Choose your favorite airline and preferred flight to Rome, then meet me at our lodgings. I have the bulk of my miles with one specific airline, but many different ones travel to Rome, so choose the one that you prefer, as long as you land in Fiumicino or Ciampino airports). If you will be traveling to other countries or regions before joining me, that's wonderful! Trains and busses are great ways to get around in Italy, too. I'll help you determine the best way to get to me based on the way you choose to travel. I'll provide you with all of the information about where and how to reach me, ahead of time, don't worry! Part of what I offer you as a DivoraRoma travelers, is the pre-departure planning session in person or over the phone/Skype, so that you are fully prepared for the trip. I provide a care package for every individual traveler or every couple traveling together, containing maps, travel information about our area, helpful phone numbers and addresses, a full itinerary showing our activities for the week, as well as a personalized travel journal for you to enjoy during our week together. Ill be your local Roman host, while you enjoy yourself as my guest. I can't wait!

Once in Rome

Once you and the rest of the travelers safely arrive, you'll be greeted with a spread of delicious finger foods (meats and cheeses and breads) and local wines to welcome you to Italy! You'll have plenty of time to settle into your room, unpack and freshen up, before we all head out on our first afternoon together. This first day is most likely a big travel day for you, so I'll make sure that we take it easy. I'll show you our neighborhood so you can get a sense of our location and what there is to do and see right around us. I'll provide you with maps and helpful advice about our specific location, so that you can be as independent as you like, during our week together. As a group, we'll experience lunches and dinners in local establishments

Details:

Solo traveling, as a couple or in a group

Bring your family, gather close friends, be with your partner, or leave it to me to bring group of 4 to 8 perfectly wonderful people together for a fun and delicious culinary journey though Rome. While the home's kitchen and living room is communal, each traveler (solo or as a pair) will have complete privacy in the bedroom. 

I will take care of your lodgings. You'll stay in a beautiful flat in central Rome (historic farmstead villa or central apartment in the Tuscan hills or the Puglia region, or wherever your chosen DivoraRoma voyage takes you!) and you'll experience the city, the town, the area, as the locals have for hundreds of years. We will eat delicious and typical dishes of the area and learn to make some of them ourselves, with our own personal chef. Excursions to nearby towns to taste handmade olive oils, wines and cheeses will give you an opportunity to see the country surrounding Rome, around Tuscany, in Puglia and beyond. There will be cheese, wine, olive oil and artisanal water tastings, together with exploration of both famous and little known archaeological sites and museums, and of course... shopping! Rome is filled with vintage markets for high fashion and handmade artifacts. Florence is nearby and filled with Renaissance art and plenty of vintage shopping as well! Our week together will be exciting and all-inclusive. I look forward to showing you around my home country!

Outside of Rome

2018's trips will include culinary experiences outside of Rome as well: the beautiful region of Puglia, in the "heel" of the boot, with it's turquoise blue Mediterranean settings and white washed ancient buildings; or the majestic Tuscan hills with the deep green of the grasses and ancient cypress trees lining hillside roads leading to vineyards and castles. Please see the 2018 voyage date page for detailed information. Custom culinary trips are welcome too, of course.

Traveler feedback:

 
My mom and I had a fantastic experience with DivoraRoma! Alice truly made us feel at home in Rome, which was a great change from the usual touristy experience you inevitably end up having abroad. Our apartment was super comfortable and in a perfect location. The tour was a great balance between planned activities and time off - so you can have your relaxing vacation as well as your action packed vacation. We learned so much about the history of Rome, it’s people, and it’s culture (particularly the food and wine!) all while experiencing the best of modern day Rome. Would strongly recommend this experience to others!
