“This trip was incredible. Our group was composed of only 6 people so it felt like a custom tour rather than one of the typical organized larger groups you see in Italy. This was definitely the highlight for us as we got to spend a lot of quality time throughout the week and had the guide all to ourselves! We would go back in a heart beat! Thank you!!”
Definitely coming back!!

“I never thought I could learn so much while on a vacation. This trip truly feeds your stomach and your brain! Above all our cooking class was incredibly fun and we even got to make stuffed olives which turned out to be quite good! In the end we felt the value of the tour was very high and would like to return in 2019 for a longer trip. Thank you so much for making us discovered this wonderful part of Italy, we will be back!”

Cooking classes will require standing on your feet for up to 3 hours. Accommodation Nestled in the heart of Ascoli Piceno’s Centro Storico (Historic Center) our selected accommodation is a stunning property that is locally-owned and operated. Once having its life as a noble palace and convent, the two were combined to create a perfectly curated luxury boutique 4-star stay that is a unique expression of our territory. Tucked away down a cobble-stone paved alley its position offers tranquility, yet it is conveniently located just steps away from the city center and one of Italy’s most beautiful squares: Piazza del Popolo (The People’s Square). It is the perfect location to immerse yourself in the rhythm of our city, allowing you to easily enjoy an evening passeggiata (stroll), and ease into what the Italians call “La Dolce Vita”.
