Tourissimo, leading Italy travel experts, recently released a 7-Day “Blue Zone” Culinary Cycling tour of Sardinia, hosted by celebrated Chef Gabrielle Hamilton. Experience the culinary specialties of both the coast and mountains while discovering the cultural roots of the island and cycling some of the most scenic roads. Chef Hamilton helps guests understand and experience the local cuisine and culinary techniques, all of which tell the story of the area.

 

“Many travelers describe Sardinia as being a continent unto itself, with each area and town having diverse landscapes and local traditions,” said Beppe Salerno, co-founder, Tourissimo. “Most of the recipes and dishes are surprisingly different from other areas of Italy, such as filindeu, the ‘thread of god,’ a special pasta considered the rarest in the world.”

 

Sardinia is one of the few places in the world boasting a Blue Zone designation. The name refers to areas across the world where people live longer and have healthier, more natural lifestyles steeped in traditions passed down from generation to generation. On this tour, guests ride through this Blue Zone while exploring its unique historical and cultural aspects, enjoying authentic food and wine along the way.

Highlights include:

  • Enjoying regional food, including dishes not found anywhere else in Italy
  • Visiting the village of Oliena with a wine tasting
  • Learning through lectures about Sardinia’s Blue Zone
  • Visiting the Bronze Age site of Santa Cristina
  • Exploring the Gennargentu Mountain Range
  • Embarking on a day cruise along the Selvaggio Blue coastline
  • Cycle rural towns along the Mediterranean coast
