Location

This culinary holiday takes place in the regions of Umbria, Lazio, and Tuscany, Italy. The historical region of Tuscia awaits you with its unique landscapes, perforated rock water spurs, deep shady valleys, crystal clear lakes, medieval villages that defy nature, and wines that invite to conviviality.

The west of Tuscia is combined with the sea of the Tyrrhenian coast, overlooking Tarquinia, the Etruscan city par excellence, and the Maremma stretches across Canino, Tuscania, and Monteromano. The refined Etruscan civilization is testified by the precious archaeological finds and wide necropolis, like the ones painted in Tarquinia, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Tuscia is the Land of the Etruscans, it covers the whole province of Viterbo, a few kilometers from Rome. Here, you can find important Etruscan-Roman archaeological sites, medieval castles, and Renaissance villas and palaces with their 16th rare examples of Italian gardens in ancient villages.

Parks, lakes, forests, and protected natural reserves allow the most varied sports activities, such as horseback riding, hiking, walking, mountain bike circuits, sailing, and windsurfing. Here, the local cuisine still offers old recipes and authentic dishes, which you will get to know with your cooking classes.
