Shopping, Olive Oil & Cheese Weekend Tour
Equally as beautiful as its neighbours Umbria and Tuscany but with-out the tourists, this is real Italy where English is hardly spoken, the people are warm and genuine and traditional ways of life are still maintained. Le Marche boasts gems including Urbino, birthplace of Raffaello, the stunningly beautiful Ascoli Piceno, and Macerata.
This weekend will appeal to lovers of all things Italian.
You will be savouring some of the finest cheeses at a local cheese producer, and you will have an opportunity to try your hand at olive picking and observe the process of making extra virgin oil. Olive oil tastes at its finest when it is newly pressed and you will be one of the few to experience the taste of the oil fresh from the press.
A trip to a traditional market, with detours to Todds and Prada factory outlets is a must in this region - a chance to look out for those Christmas presents!
One of the wonderful components of Italian life is the food and the way it is savoured and enjoyed, so our cookery class will take place at Il Maniero, palazzo and art club, where you will be shown some of the secrets of the regional Italian cooking. Long, leisurely lunches and dinners at local restaurants will give you the wonderful flavour of different cooking styles and techniques used in the region.
