Olive Garden, the Italian restaurant chain of Darden Restaurantsm, is launching an offer of $200 ‘Pasta Passport To Italy’ as part of its annual sale of the Never Ending Pasta Pass. The company will offer 50 diners the chance to buy an all-inclusive week-long trip to Italy for themselves and a friend for $200. The Italian vacation will feature stops in cities including Siena, Florence, Assisi, and Rome. Airfare, ground transportation, hotels, meals, and excursions will all be included in the $200 cost.
These 50 “Pasta Passports” will be available along with 22,000 Pasta Passes for 30 minutes beginning tomorrow, September 14, starting at 2p.m. ET. So set your alarms if you’re interested and go to this link.
The $100 cards entitle the holder to eight weeks of unlimited pasta bowls (plus the requisite soup or salad and breadsticks) between September 25 and November 19. There are no limits on how often pass holders can visit Olive Garden locations and how much they can eat. So how much value you get out of it, is up to you.
This is a hot item for pasta lovers and even more so this time around with the chance for a cheap trip to Italy. Last year, all 21,000 Never Ending Pasta Passes sold out in just one second.
