About the Event
Fall is harvest time! We will see Wine being made. Pick fresh figs. Eat truffles. If the weather is on our side then we will be there at the right time for Olive harvest and then can see some Fresh Olive Oil being pressed! (this is subject to the harvest thought which changes due to the summer growing season!).
This week is also a feast of the Madonna della Consolazione. So you will see a traditional village feast and festivities…and the craziest fireworks you’ve ever seen… right in the middle of the piazza!!!
We will take a trip to visit Giuseppina and Nicola the cheesemakers to see how the local Caciocavallo cheese is made.
We will also spend a day visiting local Roman Ruins and other historical sights in nearby Lucera and on another day take a ride out to the coast to see the beautiful Adriatic, see the Cathedral in San Giovanni Rotondo where Saint Pio served and a visit to the Sanctuary to St Michael the Archangel at Monte Sant'Angelo which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. There will be time to take a walking tour of town, and time to relax!
When you speak to Dorina, she will provide you a contact for a travel agent. If you arrange your own travel, you will want to arrive in Naples on Oct 4th. You will want to make your departure no earlier than 10am on Oct 14th for your included ride to the airport. Other transportation arrangements can be made for additional fees if you do not arrive or depart in the pick-up and drop-off times.
**To take a Cooking Class in Puglia is like no other. Puglia is still off of the more beaten paths of other tourist areas.
Don't miss it! You will see what it is really like in a Peasant Village in Southern Italy!
