The Italian Train of Taste

Italian Train of Taste

If you happen to be near Lombardy region this summer, you should try to book yourself a ticket on board of  il Treno di Sapori — meaning “Train of Taste”. Passengers will be served local food and wines as they enjoy the scenery of the region. It is a nice way to discover local cuisine.

You can sit down in the dining room or sit at the bar. From what I could undertand from the Google translation, the Train of Taste travels from Iseo through the Franciacorta region along Lake Iseo and through Valle Camonica.

I love the view. And there are plenty more stunning landscape images at the il Treno di Sapori Web site.
