Stay in a Historic Hotel

Parts of Casa Gregorio date back to the 18th century, when it was a home for nobles. A full restoration in 2010 added modern comforts to the  many rooms, but you can still see historic features such as coffered wooden ceilings and the original tile flooring. Downstairs, there's a 16th-century olive oil mill. (See photo below).

Hands-On Cooking Classes

You'll meet with local chefs for cooking classes that cover each course of a traditional Italian dinner, from antipasti to dessert. Using fresh ingredients, participants prepare classic dishes such as fettuccine with truffles, stuffed zucchini, and pizza.

Culinary Tours

Ciociaria is known for its fresh provolone, ricotta, and buffalo mozzarella; you can taste all three on a tour of a local dairy farm. The trip also includes tours of an olive oil mill, a vineyard and wine cellar, and a prosciuttificio, where you can sample hand-cut prosciutto and pork sausage.
