Food is important for travellers

According to the UN agency UNWTO 88% of all travellers consider that the gastronomy plays a major role on the trip. It comes as no surprise. We know that many participants on our wine tours are as interested in the local gastronomy as they are in wine. More and more people are looking for unique and special dining experiences during their travels. Food festivals around the world are becoming more and more popular. People go on holiday with the main purpose to eat the local food, drink the local drinks.

Instead of planning visits to monuments and museums they pre-booked table at famous restaurants, and do research on which food markets to visit. Souvenirs bought home are often something edible. Read about food’s new importance here There are some amazing pictures as well.
