Cooking and Assisi Tour

Cooking classes Umbria


Spend the morning  at aur Cookery School and leave calm, cool and collected with your Christmas goodies in tow at the end of the class. The cooking class includes four courses from the Christmas in Italy menu. At the end of the cooking you will sit down for a fabulous lunch with Christmas recipes and celebrate with a glass of our organic wine. The afeteroon tour is in Assisi, the  Home-town of Saint Francis, peacefully set on the slopes of the Subasio Mountain,

The Basilica of Saint Francis is one of Europe’s most important sanctuaries and undoubtedly the cultural highlight of the entire region.

The guided visit of the city includes:


  • – Basilica of St. Francis
  • – Piazza del Comune (central square)
  • – Minerva temple
  • – Chiesa Nuova
  • – Oratory of St. Francesco Piccolino
  • – Basilica of St. Claire


In December Assisi is  dressed of light and color, here you can feel the real atmosphere of Christmas.
The streets of the center and in the surroundings every niche, showcase or church houses a nativity scene. Most of these representations participates in a contest that every year rewards the best amateur crib.

Another marvel is the monumental crib in the meadow of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi with human size terracotta figures, the huge Christmas fir tree at the entrance of the Lower Basilica and the artistic works that every year the Italian region chosen to honor the Patron of Italy gives the Convent. In the central squares you can not miss the classic Christmas markets (Santa Maria degli Angeli e Rivotorto di Assisi) inherited from the Nordic tradition, where to buy the latest gifts or get groped by the goodies on display.
