Off-season is a great time to visit Italy. Airline prices are low, the tourist crowds are gone, the weather is mild, and regional culinary temptations abound. It’s the time when Italians bottle wine, roast chestnuts, hunt truffles, press fresh olive oil, make cheeses and prepare the traditional cured meats that will sustain the household throughout the year.
Our 'Best of Italy' programs are experiential in nature, targeted at those who wish to dig deeper into the cultural traditions, foods, wines and seasonal festivals of central Italy. We match you with local partners to plan a special week of goat milking, truffle hunting, cheese making, mozzarella pulling, pasta rolling, salami stuffing, wine tasting, olive pressing and other hands-on activities, all designed to meet your particular tastes.
Jeff and Robin will be on-hand in Torre Alfina during your stay to personally assist with your planning, introduce you to the villa's local partners, and lend advice on where to find the best cafes, osterias, trattorias, hot springs and other experiential gems to fill your free time.
Join us any week in April or November 2019 for a deep dive into Italy that few tourists get to experience!
