Travelling through the regions of Italy and discovering the amazing diversity of history, culture and cuisine this country has to offer, has become for us at Cioccolata Bella, a life long quest. Cioccolata Bella’s founder Elizabeth Toumbos and her partner Michael Trembath have a unique travel style and carefully design hosted tours and un-hosted itineraries for the gourmet traveller.
Our specialty is travelling the wine areas, Michael, being the general manager of Trembath & Taylor, one of Australia’s leading importer / distributors of Italian wine, has the advantage of the local knowledge of his wine producers who are fully immersed in the culture and hospitality and, as such, are ‘experts’ in where to stay, eat and drink in their region.
With a combined 35 years plus experience of leaving the tourist trail behind and getting local, we have managed to cover almost every corner of Italy. Our hosted tours and itineraries are all bespoke and designed with your needs and desires in mind. Whether your trip is 2 days or 2 months, Cioccolata Bella can fill your Italian adventure with interesting people, places and culinary delights.
