Cuisine and Culture in Southern Italy: July 15–July 26, 2024


Pack your camera and taste buds for this delicious adventure to see the sights and explore the food of southern Italy.


About the Trip

Discover the Italian sights you have read about in books and seen in movies, including the Vatican City and Sistine Chapel and the highlights of Rome: the Colosseum, the Forum, Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and more.  If the sights don’t entice you, maybe the food will! We’ll take a cooking class in Rome and visit a farm where mozzarella is made. We’ll learn all about olive oil, pasta, gelato and chocolate.

The adventure kicks-off in Los Angeles, where you will meet the new Girl Scout friends who will be alongside you on this culinary journey around southern Italy.
