Italian Culinary vacations:
fun cooking vacations to learn about the festivals, folklore and culinary traditions in Italy
If your vacation dream is to live an authentic Italian experience and immerse yourself in the traditions and cuisine of this country, we can help you to fulfill this dream.
We propose exclusive culinary vacations coinciding with Italian Festivals and seasonal Events that during the year celebrate the rich Umbrian history, its foods and its Saints.
In each season – SPRING – SUMMER – FALL – WINTER– I selected Festivals and Events representative of the Umbrian life and tradition. Around these events I create unique cooking vacations including traditional home cooking classes and the best gastronomic and artistic excursions.
However, if your vacation dates do not coincide with our culinary tours we offer a selection of culinary holidays all year round on request for a minimum of 2 people.
In our popular cooking classes we explore all aspects of the Italian cuisine sharing with you many traditional recipes. Our cooking classes are small and intimate as groups vary between two and eight participants, in order to assure a better enjoyment of each other’s company and get as much attention as possible.
The meals prepared will focus on fresh seasonal products and quality ingredients mainly coming for my farm.
The accommodation and the cooking classes are in the farmhouse B&B ”La volpe e l’uva in Perugia”, in the beautiful heart of the Umbria valley, surrounded by 10 hectares of olive groves, vineyards and orchards. It is only 4km from the historic centre of Perugia.
Our trips are available for small groups, couples and for solo travellers without supplement!
If you have a passion for culinary travel, Italian food, wines and Italian traditions with the Cooking vacations proposed by Discover Umbria you can enjoy the hidden pleasures of Italy like never before!
