We provide extraordinarily good walking tours, such as Authentic Italy, which lasts for a week and is available in April, May, June, July, September, October and November. Accommodation is provided at the four star La Facchio Hotel, which offers a choice of twin or double rooms and suites with en suite bathrooms – and stunning mountain views from every room. La Facchio Hotel accommodation offers excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners when participants are not provided these meals on their walks. This tour is suitable for most people and is limited to twenty five participants. The itinerary includes tours of San Lorenzello with its marvellous Capo de Monte ceramics; Calvisi; Caserta with its magnificent Royal Palace; Telese, famed for its sulphur springs; and the San Pascale Monastery.
Participants walk up hills and down dales, through ancient villages and spectacular scenery of ancient olive trees, forests, lakes and mountains. All meals and snacks are provided on this tour, including gourmet picnics and a gala dinner.
Another great option is our Walk and Dine tour, which also last for seven days. Participants will attend restaurant quality Italian cookery lessons in a medieval castle on three afternoons, while the other three afternoons will be spent learning all about rustic cooking on a farm. Each evening participants will enjoy the meals they have prepared, together with the some of the great wines of the area. The guided walking tours take in the spa town of Telese and the San Pascale Monastery where you can meet and talk to the resident monks. Walks will go through meadows and forests and olive groves and vineyards for some spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. There will also be time to explore medieval villages and historic sites, as well as do some shopping.
