Tour starting location
Treat yourself to one of Italian Delights Tours small group private tours (min. 4 guests) of regional Victoria or enjoy a day out shopping at Melbourne's best Italian gourmet food stores!
Provincial Victoria's King Valley is becoming famous for its world class wines, gourmet food, and spectacular natural scenery. This lush, green valley only 2 1/2 hours drive from Melbourne practically takes you to picturesque Northern Italy, without the long haul flight.
On the tour you will be treated to some wholesome and rich velvety reds and a rustic Italian "cucina". These characteristics are more than evident in the eateries that we have chosen, which include the chef hat awarded Simone's of Bright, Brown Brothers winery and Lindenwarrah at Milawa's Merlot restaurant.
For gourmet shoppers, shopping day tours will help you stock your pantries with all things Italian! Feel like a child in a toy shop and discover the excitement of discovering great cheeses, cured meats, coffee, authentic and well-priced Italian wine, along with a host of delicious pastries. During the tours your hosts will take care of all your groceries and once you have bought your items, they will be stored safely away in a cool place in their well-appointed vehicle.
For the gourmet shopping tours Italian Delights Tours have chosen some of the best and most authentic Italian food stores. Unpretentious and unashamedly Italian and great value to boot! They also offer a wide range of products that make great gifts or special treats for you, your friends or loved ones! After the shopping enjoy a casual lunch at the many great Italian cafes and restaurants in Lygon St, before the tour concludes.
