You will stay overnight in a double room or apartment with a kitchen, a bathroom, and a lunchroom at Locanda al Sarapollo. Three houses are in the ancient borgo of Vallerano with an outstanding view of a valley surrounded by pure air and you can have chances to explore relaxed, ancient caves nearby.

During this holiday, you will join four cooking classes, four trips into Italian taste. La vita è bella is sitting around a table with fresh pasta and old stories about maccaroni. Pane, amore e fantasia is an ancient dish and modern taste with gnocchi and pizza. La grande bellezza is Italy and its regional cuisine, variations on the theme. La dolce vita describes that sweet is rich, the salty is poor, and that is because of precise reasons.

The cooking classes are also organized around the idea of a pleasant journey relaxing with some little walks, maybe going to a gourmet restaurant or an appointment for a wine tasting, an organic olive grove, or an ancient castle. Along the path, you will pick wild herbs to be used during the cooking lesson at Osteria degli orti.

The arrival is Sunday. Then, you will have dinner at Osteria Degli Orti. Next days from Monday to Thursday, you will have classes in the morning, lunch together, afternoon tours with the aperitifs. After that, you are free for dinner. Maccheroni and Wine will give you all the tips you request so you can also cook at your apartment if you like it or book a shuttle service to reach a site if you do not have your car.
