There are tourists and there are travellers. There are people who live in a place and people who live the place. They may want to know and understand the cultures of places in the Mediterranean basin. Balancing between land, sea, and sky. This is where Med Food Lab excursions come in, in fact they are somewhat more than excursions. They observe the land. Both natural and man-made. The human contribution, from fishing to cultivating, and from trade to financial investment. Then they observe the construction of historical centres. This is culture: streets, buildings, religious sites, art, treasure chests of art and meanings. The presence of an affluent class and of lively commerce has sanctioned the evolution of a high quality enogastronomic dimension. More than that we can speak of excellence ready to be discovered and savoured.
