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. In the country house is organized a cooking lesson with Rita, in which some fabulous Umbrian dishes will be prepared. The black truffle is found in Umbria and with a truffle hunter, you head into the hills of Trevi. Afterward, the truffle is served in a delicious pasta dish.
