Cooking and Walking Tour in Lazio, Italy


Lazio is an area of outstanding beauty and history. Located between the Apennines and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the region is known for its volcanic lakes, mountains, gorges, olive groves and vineyards.

We stay in the heart of Etruria, the region between Tuscany and Rome and land of the Etruscans. It is an area of immense wealth due to the important history of the Etruscans and more recently, the Romans.

In Anthea's spacious old kitchen we will offer hands-on instruction on innovative Italian gourmet and traditional dishes passed down through generations. The emphasis is on simplicity, quality, fresh ingredients and easy-to make recipes, including parmesan cups filled with delicious creamed asparagus and quail eggs and tiny vegetable soufflés.

Of course we also learn to prepare anti pasto and hearty second course dishes. Lessons are complemented by visits to wineries and the making of marvellous Mozzarella.

Our walk takes us through splendid and almost untouched countryside, dotted with traditional farms and countless acres of ancient olive groves. Everywhere in Lazio we will see reminders of the region's Etruscan, Roman and Medieval past.

Highlights include a walk around Civita, the Francigena Pilgrim Route, Villa Lante, a mysterious Etruscan pyramid hidden deep within the woods and Pitigliano.

On the last day we return to Orvieto where the Flavours of Italy tour concludes.

Our Hotels and Cuisine


We stay in a delightful hotel near Bolsena, where hospitality is the key word. The restaurant has an interesting Italian cuisine and offers a stunning panorama of the lake We have selected a number of individual restaurants, which highlight the diversity of the "Cucina Casalinga". The two dinners during our 2 days of cooking are in Anthea's private dining room.

Guided Walking HolidaysGreat holiday with excellent guides. The actual itinerary bore little resemblance to the published one, but that didn't spoil it for us (it might trouble some). The area around lake Bolsena is beautiful and interesting. The cooking sessions were a highlight and exceeded my expectations!
