Pick fresh tomatoes, pound fresh basil and knead dough, as you learn to make pasta with a real Italian mamma in western Umbria, the little brother of Tuscany. The pace here is slightly slower and it's less crowded than elsewhere in the country, making Umbria the perfect place to get acquainted with rural Italy. You will stay at an argriturismo, a small Italian farm, right in the Umbrian countryside. Spend your days exploring the fields and picking peppers from the vegetable garden. In the evenings, sit down at the long wooden table for your dinner of homemade pasta with freshly picked vegetables.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrive in Pietralunga, Umbria

Today you’ll travel by car to your agriturismo through the rolling farmland of western Umbria. Along the way you’ll learn why Umbria is known as the green heart of Italy, with its rolling fields, forests, lakes, flowery meadows and fertile riverbanks. Your agriturismo is located on a hill, meaning your rustic room will have great views, as well as traditional features and a comfortable bed. The rest of the day is free for you to close your eyes by the pool and listen to the chirping birds.

Pasta cooking workshop & free time

This morning you can relax, as it’s not until the afternoon that you will really get acquainted with Italian cuisine by making your own pasta under the guidance of a local cook. You’ll start by grinding the grains and then work your way through the whole process until you have a steaming bowl of fresh pasta in front of you. After all that carb-loading you’ll be ready the next day to explore the local area a bit more. Visit Gubbio, considered one of the most beautiful towns in Umbria, or you may prefer to explore the pilgrim town Assisi with is beautiful old white buildings.

Leave Umbria

After a breakfast of fresh eggs straight from the farm, you’ll continue your Italy trip along country roads through small medieval villages as you drive to Todi. Alternatively, trade your four wheels and explore the golden brown Tuscan hills on your very own Vespa.
