Ciclismo Classico’s Olive Harvest Tour featured in Boston Globe

For a flavorful fall vacation, the Boston Globe suggests cycling through the Molise region of Italy with Ciclismo Classico. The Olive Harvest Tour, eight days long, departs Oct. 18 and costs $3,695 per person (double occupancy).

Globe correspondent Kari Bodnarchuk writes:

Learn about the production of olive oil, then meet a member of the Colavita family, who will give you a tour of an olive-crushing mill and offer samples of freshly pressed oil from the new harvest. On foot, you can search for truffles in Isernia, explore ancient theater ruins and a bell foundry in Pietrabbondante, and tour a pasta factory in Trivento. The trip ends with a visit to one of Molise’s finest wineries, a tour along the Adriatic coast, and a chance to see Rome for a day.
