One of my main intentions is to taste all the things I couldn't when I was sick last time in Italy! I mean to tell you the opportunities are endless! On our first night there Kristin and Bill treated us to a simple dinner at a lovely family's pizzaria. So light-so delisioso. and that was just the beginning! We had picnics, olive oil tastings,pasta we made ourselves, pigeon (!) -there's a story there! The farmers market just footsteps away was a delight to all the senses.( Full roasted pork!) We wanted it all! The beautiful patio at our convent di Ludovico provided a wonderful break from our work-lively conversations with fellow artists in the shade and fantastic food and drink! Is this heaven? Im so looking forward to this-! One thing I missed while in bed was the vineyard tour-I cant wait-this is included in your trip. My daughter raved about the wine and the setting-and brought two bottles home-Orvieto is world reknowned for its wine!
# Oh but I did go to the dinner ( also included) where we prepared our own four star dinner-( guided by pros natch!) Another amazing event! We created deep fried Zucchini blossom appetizers-from that day's market and made our own fresh pasta-incredible!
# The dining here is divine-and you can go simple with just a pastry ( again to die for!) and a cappuchino while you sit outdoors as you paint watercolor flowers-can we go now please?
# YES! Please join me in this incredible adventure!
