One week Italian Cooking and Hiking in Tuscany
Immerse yourself in the culture and lifestyle of Tuscany. At Casa Ombuto we are now offering for selected weeks a combination of cooking and hiking. Learn to cook authentic Italian dishes, having fun and making friends for life, all while staying in Casa Ombuto and hiking with a professional guide in the beautiful Casentino Valley.
During your one week Italian cooking vacation you will have Italian cooking lessons on 4 of the afternoons and hiking on 2 of the mornings. The hiking is an free optional extra and if you prefer not to hike or want to go sightseeing on your own you are of course free to do so. For dinner you will dine on your creations accompanied by delicious wines to compliment the dishes. We introduce you each evening to different red and white wines from different regions of Italy. If you prefer not to hike, the program allows you enough time to relax and enjoy the surroundings or to do some sightseeing in the area. A full-day culinary excursion is included.
If you want to learn about Italian cooking and Tuscan culture then this is the place. Arezzo and Casentino are readily accessible and there are wonderful walks in the hills and woods around the property.
I am leaving tomorrow, and I am so sad! It has been an amazing experience, and I would come back in a heartbeat. Paola is amazing! I learned so much and had such a blast in the process. I highly recommend this trip to all, whether you have only boiled water in your life or have been cooking for years.
