April 16 to 26, 2020

Enjoy the good life as we delve into a pair of Italy’s most alluring regions—Piemonte and Liguria’s Italian Riviera. Faculty leader Roberto D’Alimonte enlightens us while our Stanford  connections give us special access.

Riviera reverie. Walk along the hiking trails of the Cinque Terre, five pastel-hued, cliffside fishing  villages, and check out charming Portofino and nearby Santa Margherita. Culinary treasures. After touring Turin, sample world-class wines and feast on farm-fresh meals in Piemonte’s vineyard-carpeted Barolo region, Italy’s “slow food” and fine wine capital. And earthy pleasures. Visit an award-winning pecorino cheese farm, and accompany a truffle-hunting dog as he sniffs out the prized delicacy.
