Whisked Away to Italy 2025

After selling out our 2024 getaway in record time, we’re heading back to Italy for Whisked Away to Italy 2025! 

We’re incredibly excited to have the opportunity to offer you this trip for a second year in a row and it’s no wonder it’s such a popular event with the most fabulous co-host, vegan lifestyle expert Erin Ireland

As always, we’ll reside at our home away from home, Pensione Vignamaggio, and throughout the trip we’ll embark on a day of vegan wine-tastings, traverse the varied landscape of colourful Cinque Terre, go on a guided tour of historical Florence and so much more! 

We’ll also have the opportunity to indulge in a mouth-watering menu of veganized Italian food prepared by our very own private vegan chef, the fantastic Gabriele Palloni. In addition to Gabriele’s Italian vegan menu, Erin will lead us through two fun and interactive cooking experiences!  

Our Italy trips are incredibly popular because the Tuscan region boasts a magical element that words can’t properly describe. And with that we can’t wait to grab a glass of wine and watch the sunset together in 2025!
