Coming in 2018, by popular request, Alive in Paradise is offering the ultimate food lovers vacation to central Italy. A small group will enjoy this exclusive experience, guided by Carol Nunan who brings all her knowledge and experience in this part of Italy.
Commencing in glorious Rome for two nights and then moving to a beautifully appointed farmhouse in Citta Della Pieve. Based at this ancient hilltop town in the green heart of Umbria, you will visit local markets and artisinal cheesemakers to select seasonal produce; learn about the “cucina povera” of Tuscany and Umbria; cook and dine together, and walk the picturesque narrow streets to see medieval sites and sublime paintings. In addition, there will be special treats dining at local trattorie and ristoranti.
You’ll also enjoy day, or half-day trips, to the stunning Duomo in ancient Orvieto and the famous wine and olive regions of Montefalco, Cortona and Montepulciano.
Together with relaxing downtime to just “do your own thing”, this will be two weeks to unwind in a beautiful environment, learn new skills, discover a different side of Italy and make friends. No flags or umbrellas, I promise!
