This Shockingly Real $200 ‘Pasta Passport’ Sends You On A Week-Long Trip To Italy


Get ready, pasta people. Tomorrow’s your chance to seize a $200 ticket straight to Italy¬†and two months of unlimited pasta.

The entirely too-good-to-be-true sounding offer from Olive Garden is the restaurant’s new Pasta Passport. It’s an all-inclusive weeklong trip for two to the motherland of pasta and access to the chain’s two-month never-ending pasta deal.

The passport is pretty exclusive; there are only 50 available. But Olive Garden is footing the bill for those very lucky eaters to explore Italy for eight days and seven nights.

Literally everything is covered in the $200 price tag: airfare, transportation on the ground, hotels, meals and excursions to the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel.

Pasta Passport travelers will see Siena, Florence, Assisi, Pisa and Rome, and taste Tuscan wine, local gelato and plenty of noodles.

It's time to prep for endless carbs: Our Pasta Passes go on sale this Thursday!

While you’ve only got a very small chance of slurping spaghetti in Rome, you can also aim for a $100 free pass to stuff yourself silly with Olive Garden dishes stateside. For two months, you get unlimited¬†pasta, sauces, toppings, soup, salad and breadsticks.

But this carb-loaded deal doesn’t come easy. Last year, the restaurant’s 20,000 pasta passes were sold out within a second. And that deal only included a never-ending pasta bowl.

The deal goes on sale at 2 p.m. EST on Thursday, September 14. So if you want that action-packed Italian adventure, be prepped to click “buy” real quick.
