After breakfast at the hotel, today is free for you to explore Trevi independently.
The medieval centre of Trevi is a network of alleys and narrow streets still surrounded in part by the original defensive walls (built in the 13th century). The raised position of the town means it also has some exceptional views across the Umbria countryside as far as Assisi and beyond.
After breakfast at the hotel we can relax by the pool before an early afternoon transfer to Macerata.
Set amid green hills, Macerata is a charming provincial town with a wonderfully preserved hilltop centre, its old town is threaded through by skinny cobblestone streets lined by honey-coloured brick palazzi and it springs to life in summer for the town’s celebrated month-long opera festival.
After breakfast at the hotel, we will transfer to Montefalco and visit a traditional Ricotta farm where we will enjoy an Italian family atmosphere and see animals living in complete freedom. Later we will taste some freshly made ricotta cheese and homemade yogurt before finishing off our farm visit with Italian wine tasting. We will taste 7 different wines.
Today we will have a guided gentle trek through the olive groves to the local family house (approx. 1.5 hours) where we will taste a Bruschetta with extra virgin olive oil produced by the family. Later we will walk back to Trevi and the afternoon is free for you to spend however you wish.
After breakfast at the hotel, we will transfer to Rome for our flight home.
