Take a Gastronomical (Food & Wine) Tour with Conservative Tours

Every tour event at Conservative Tours is, by implication, a gastronomical tour. How could it not be? We’re going to 3 countries that over the centuries have refined cuisine the way few others have!

Our gastronomical events focus often on regional cuisines, like cassoulet from Castelnaudary in France, seafood from Sicily, or Paella from Valencia.

We rely on trained sommeliers to find the true, ideal wines for such dishes. Another aspect of our gastronomical focus is the preparation of cuisine, thus our adventures in cooking lessons from professional chefs.

It’s always a revelation to be taught how to cook when you’re in the presence of great professional chefs. Dining goes to the heart of great culture; and this is part of how we view the value of traveling to these great lands. Beauty, history, wine and haute cuisine-----the essence of a first class tour to Europe.

Travel France with Conservative Tours

France is by no accident the most visited country in the world by tourists. It has continuously ranked at the top year in and year out as the world’s premiere tourist destination.

At Conservative Tours our approach is straightforward: offer a high-end, luxury guided tour to see all the beauty that is France, and adding an element that has special appeal to conservatives.

What's so Conservative about a Trip to France?

The Conservative element of our guided tours of France often manifested in our two day visit to the hallowed grounds of the D-Day Beaches.The World War II sites that we most often visit are The D-Day Beaches and The Battle of the Bulge. It doesn’t take much time to answer the question “why do you go there?” (We know it’s the right thing to do.)

Whether it’s the Beaches at Anzio, our cemetery outside Florence, or Omaha Beach, we often are thanked by our guests for taking them there. It is a pilgrimage of a sacred kind and it is part and parcel of who we are at Conservative Tours Incorporated.

Travel Italy with Conservative Tours

An old adage from Italy states that one “can never have a bad wine in Italy!” While this may be difficult to prove in absolute terms the point is well taken----Italy never disappoints! Italy is a long series of varied and captivating places to discover, the likes of which you find only in Italy.

Italy - Civilization, Art, Culture, Cuisine & Architecture!

Where will we go on a Tour of Italy?

You’ve arrived in the capital of this great nation, where the sun always shines and the natives always have a warm embrace for their friends from America!
Where else but in Sicily can one find the crossroads of so many different civilizations and conquering tribes, the traces of whom remain to this day in a place like The Valley of the Temples.

The Lost City of Pompeii has no rival on the planet-----and archaeologists are still unearthing bits and pieces that reveal more and more of life in that era.

The Imperial City, the heart of an Empire----Rome

Civilization was enhanced, both friend and foe would concede, when all roads led to Rome; and we focus on understanding daily life in Rome when the Imperial Forum was a bustling hub of activity and the Coliseum was the forerunner to today’s palatial sporting arenas.

As the center of Christianity and the Roman Catholic church The Vatican is itself worth the transatlantic voyage-----a unique repository of history, academics, politics, art, and drama.

Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre

It’s not hard to understand why people return so often to the places they fall in love with in Italy. The selection is impressive and the destinations are iconic for good reason----they never disappoint. That’s Italy!
