After a buffet breakfast, an adventure awaits as we venture inland to the mountains. We discover the art of cheese making from two artisans and then visit a farmer’s market showcasing fresh produce from the local sellers.
We explore the Monastery of Monte Cassino, its history and the scars from WWII.
Today’s lunch will be at Agriturismo Bertacco who specialise in the ancient grains of ‘grano monococco’, from which they produce flours to make pasta, bread, cakes and craft artisan beers. A special six course menu showing you the versatility of the grains will be served for lunch.
On our return we will stop to admire the extensive caves of Pastena before a dining experience at Ai Pozzi, a restaurant set amid the area’s ancient wells.
