We are arriving in Barcelona and have 1 week before we do a Mediterranean cruise. We are hoping to drive to Italy and include learning to cook pasta and a delicious meal. We are a family of 4 (15&17 yr. ). We are flexible as to where we go, but it does need to be north and between Barcelona and Venice. Our arrival in Barcelona is June 17 : ). We are not looking for fancy, expensive. We are looking for fun, good people and good food. Can anyone help?
