About the Event
All the sun isn’t in Tuscany! Puglia is beautiful! Summer classes include a lot of the summer seasonal vegetables such as zucchini and eggplant as well as fresh herbs. We will also take a trip to visit Giuseppina and Nicola the cheesemakers! You will also spend a morning at the Saturday Market and witness the St. Antonio Festival where you will see processions, lit up streets and music in Piazza!
This trip includes a mid-week day to go to the beach on the Gargano (the “spur” of the boot) where the beaches are beautiful and the water crystal blue with mountains falling into the sea!
We also spend a morning visiting the nearby city of Lucera…where there is a Roman amphitheater and cathedrals dating back 1000 years! And yes… there is STILL time to relax in piazza or at the town pool perched on the side of the mountain!
The second Summer trip overlaps with the first trip over the Saint Anthony Feast Weekend!
EVERYONE WILL ENJOY THE FUN FILLED WEEKEND AND STILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO DO EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE LIST!
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 Naples on July 5th. You will want to make your departure no earlier than 10am on July 15th for your included ride to the airport. Other transportation arrangements can be made for additional fees if you do not fall into these included pick-up/drop-off windows.
**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!
