This enchanting experience combines the vibrant streets of Rome with the rustic charm of Abruzzo, offering a perfect blend of cultural exploration and hands-on culinary education.

The adventure begins by exploring Rome’s iconic landmarks, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican, and more. You’ll be pampered during your stay at the historic Pantheon Inn, situated just blocks away from the Pantheon itself. Then, set off on a picturesque drive across the Abruzzo mountains to Carunchio, the home of Abruzzo Cibus, where a 6-day, all-inclusive cooking school awaits at the magnificent Palazzo Tour d’Eau. Dive into the heart of Italian culinary traditions with daily cooking classes at Abruzzo Cibus, where you’ll explore old-world recipes transformed into gourmet delights. For dessert, master the art of making the best almond biscotti with an Abruzzo twist. Weather permitting, embark on a truffle hunting adventure in the afternoon.

Accommodations during our stay in Rome boast air-conditioned rooms with private bathrooms in a historic palace-turned-deluxe hotel, just two blocks from the Pantheon. In Abruzzo, relish the exclusivity of Palazzo Tour D’Eau, a castle owned by a noble family since 1730. Immerse yourself in its rich history and modern amenities as you savor the picturesque surroundings.

With this trip, you’ll not only be gifting you and your loved one an epicurean education but also an unforgettable romantic getaway. Whether you’re a culinary enthusiast or an Italian culture lover, our Italian Cooking Adventure is the perfect gift to make this Christmas truly special.
