This sweepstakes offers a different prize each day and is open through December 26, 2014. You may enter daily. December 17, day six, the grand prize is a trip to Italy.

Days 1-2: Rome
Your journey begins in Rome, where a rich culture rivals the abundant pasta and wine. Follow your taste buds through the historic streets for your first lesson in authentic Italian cuisine.

Days 3-4: San Gimignano
Hidden in the Tuscan hills, discover the medieval city of San Gimignano. Sip and sample the region’s best vino – and the divine dishes that complement it – during a stay at a family-run winery.

Days 5-6: Bologna
The birthplace of bolognese sauce and home to Gelateria Dondoli, winner of the Ice Cream World Championship, a stop in Bologna couldn’t be more appetizing.

Day 7: Venice
Apart from winding canals and romantic gondolas, the allure of Venice lies in its belief that one meal is never enough. Embrace the cicchetti culture, indulging in ample Italian-style tapas.

Day 8: Marca Trevigiana & Venice
In Marca Trevigiana, the locals’ needs are simple: produce and Prosecco. Experience the best of both alongside a bounty of fresh, local mountain cheeses and artisan salami.

Day 9: Venice
Finalize your foodie transformation with a morning trip to Rialto Market, a prime location for fresh and flavorful ingredients. Shuffle past the seafood in search of a final pastry and cappuccino.

December 18 the prize will be a trip to Iceland. Future date destinations include Costa Rica, Bali, Peru and two other destinations not yet announced.
