You’ll taste surprisingly good wines in a unique, authentic atmosphere.

Cooking classes

A cooking vacation in Italy means “hands-on cooking” lessons where you learn to make regional specialties and traditional Italian staples such as homemade pastas, flavorful sauces, succulent meat and vegetables dishes, delicious seafood and fabulous desserts. Your teacher might be a local chef or a “nonna” (grandmother) who passes along generations traditional recipes and a passionate dedication to Italian cuisine.

Art & Crafts tours

Helped by environmental aspects, such as the mainly mountainous terrain, the rural areas of Italy  have been able to hold on to its culture: the styles of local handicrafts have far-off origins, just like the many traditional local festivals, which still keep pre-Christian rituals alive. In recent years, many traditional workshops and old shops have been revived and their splendid heritage is now accessible to anyone. Tourist have now the pleasure of discovering local products, festivals and traditions that are still very much a part of community life.

Personalized sightseeing tours

Perhaps you have already seen Italy’s big tourist destinations and want to discover somewhere new. Maybe you simply don’t like crowds, busy streets and tourist menus. There are lots of reasons for heading off the beaten track, and Abruzzo and Molise are great regions to do it, since they are plenty of picturesque villages, ancient castles, excellent local restaurants and glorious natural sceneries.
