COOKING CLASSES

Alongside her duties as cook for the Palazzetta del Vescovo, Paola will be happy to share her family recipes with you. Alternatively, she can recommend cooking schools that share the same passion and philosophy for good food as we do. Discover traditional Umbrian recipes in a friendly and informal environment. Rolling out fresh pasta by hand like our grandmothers used to do, making a typical dessert and transforming garden vegetables into a tasty appetizer are just some of the things you will learn during practical and hands-on lessons which are suitable for beginners as well as those who have more experience in the kitchen. Courses are organized by reservation only for a minimum of 2 participants, based on availability.

TRUFFLE HUNTING

A unique and unforgettable experience. An ancient craft. An opportunity to experience the thrill of accompanying an expert ``cavatore``, or digger, and his dog as they search for truffles. Enjoy a walk in the woods and discover a way of life made of great love for the land and its bounty. During the walk, you will also learn useful information on which plant varieties favor the birth of this prized underground fungus. At the end of the trek, you can enjoy a sampling of truffle products and savor the goodness of this “black gold”.

WINE TASTING

Umbria is a land of fine red and white wines. It will be our pleasure to organize a wine tasting at selected wineries with people who are passionate about their work and who will be happy to share the love for their products with you.

BIKE & HIKING

The natural surroundings and the hilly formation of Umbria offer endless possibilities for outdoor sports enthusiasts. Get a great workout, adapted to your level of difficulty, by hiking or biking across vineyards or ancient villages in search of breathtaking views. Umbria’s climate and roads offer unforgettable moments of cycling and walking. We can help you rent a bike or suggest nearby routes among hills and picturesque villages which will amaze you with one unique view after another.

HORSEBACK RIDING

A horseback ride is perhaps the best way to best appreciate Umbria’s lush wilderness. There is an equestrian center near the Palazzetta del Vescovo that offers riding lessons for adults and children. Those who already know how to ride a horse can go out with an instructor for a beautiful trek in the midst of unspoilt nature.

HOT AIR BALLOON RIDES

What better way to observe the magnificent scenery offered by the Umbrian hills than a hot air balloon ride! From this unusual and privileged point of view, the experience will be unforgettable. The flight is only carried out in optimal weather conditions by an organization of experts to ensure maximum safety. When you return to the ground, why not make the most of the opportunity and enjoy brunch or a snack with local gourmet products?
