About the Story Way®: Slow Food: Locally grown, farm to table.
Our approach to dining is truly unique just like each of the regions of the countries we're traveling through. The local chefs and families are proud of their delicious dishes which hail from each of the regions in which Story travels.

Story Land & Sea®'s unique, off-the-beaten-path venues provide an immersion into authentic regional food and wine. Your Tour Captain will select a variety of appetizers, featuring regional cuisine, and will select your wine for the evening: a variety of red and white wine from the region you're traveling, and yes, "the wine flows." Then you will be presented with a menu with Story's top recommendations (where available) in tandem with the restaurant's primary menu. It's an intentionally slow evening of delight so you can savor the experience.

LODGING IN THE HEART OF THE CITY: There is a difference between centrally-located hotels and Story Land & Sea®'s Heart of City hotels. No taxis or shuttles required when you're in the historical heart of the cities and villages.
