I invite you to be Italian for a week where you can spend a blissful time this fall in an ancient Umbrian olive grove and experience the true Italian lifestyle – the meals, the wine, the olive oil, the art, the people. The goal of the Umbrian Olive Harvest Adventure is to provide you with a unique experience. You will take home memories of a lifetime!
Fall is an engaging, but less-traveled season. The countryside abounds with numerous festivals highlighting the gorgeous autumn produce and riches from the forests and fields, from truffles to olive oil to wine to pecorino cheese — and you can experience and enjoy this joyful Umbrian celebration of the final, glorious end to summer without a throng of tourists. They’ve all gone home, leaving you with the locals, savoring the seductive Umbrian lifestyle as unhurried as they do.
But Umbria is more than just corporeal pleasures of good food and excellent wine; its mystical green hills have traditionally supported a life of tranquility, peace and spirituality, perhaps personified most in the gentle St Francis of Assisi.
These weeklong tours feature cooking classes, olive harvesting and different local events. Tour #1 will include the EuroChocolate Festival in Perugia. Tour #2 will feature a White Truffle Festival. And, on Tour #2 you will opportunity to learn, meditate and be inspired by author and motivational speaker, Donna Hartley in a location perhaps custom-made for these reflections, Umbria.
You will definitely learn how to relax and bring the love, peace and beauty of Italy back home with you.
