This eno-gastronomic tour is a wonderful discovery trip to the culinary traditions of the beautiful, green Umbria. It has as backdrop the fertile and water-rich valley Umbra, which is surrounded by green hills dotted with delightful villages and covered with vineyards and olive groves. We found here known and lesser known villages such as Assisi, Montefalco, Bevagna and Spello, but also the larger provincial capital Perugia and the impressive town of Spoleto, which lies at the foot of the thickly wooded Monteluco mountain.
You spend the night along the babbling river Clitunno, in an eco-structure that is centrally located between Trevi, Bevagna and Montefalco. In the restaurant, delicious Umbrian dishes are served, with frequent use of local products such as truffle, mushrooms and extra-virgin olive oil. You are looking for wild herbs with a herbalist in the Trevi area. These herbs are used during the cooking course. The black truffle is found in Umbria and with a truffle hunter, you head into the hills of Trevi. Afterwards the truffle is served in a delicious pasta dish.
The next day, Assisi and the wines produced here are on the program. You will visit an organic wine grower. You will have a cooking course with Maria and taste their exceptional wines during the course. Afterwards you have plenty time enough to visit Assisi. A detailed cultural route description takes you past the famous monuments of this lovely pilgrim city.
