DAY 1 I ROME AIRPORT I ORVIETO HOTEL
Upon your arrival you’ll be met and transferred to your hotel in Orvieto. Located in southwestern Umbria, the medieval town of Orvieto sits upon steep cliffs of volcanic tuff. A distinct and picturesque city unlike any other, in addition to its dramatic setting, it offers wondrous Etruscan ruins, a secret underground city, a famous regional white wine, and a Duomo rising head and shoulders above the rest of the town with a glittering mosaic facade visible for miles around. Tonight enjoy a wine tasting session.

DAY 2 I ORVIETO
Today learn the secrets of the Umbrian Cuisine. Start the day with a visit of the local market accompanied by Chef Lorenzo Polegri. After strolling around the market and picking out the ingredients needed you will head to the kitchen where under the chef’s guidance you will learn how to make a typical dish. After class, you will be invited to feast on the dishes you have prepared as you take your seat at the table for lunch. In the afternoon a local guide will accompany you on a tour of Orvieto. (B, L)

DAY 3 I ORVIETO I NORCIA I ORVIETO
Today we visit the picturesque town of Norcia. Surrounded by the Sybilline mountains, its ancient center is almost flat and completely enclosed by a full circuit of walls that has survived intact from the 14 C. The town is probably most famous in modern times for its pork products. Norcia was always well-known for hunting, especially for wild boar, and its production of sausages, capocollo, salumi and hams made from wild boar and domestic swine has given a word to the Italian language - norcineria - a pork butcher's shop. Another famous product of Norcia are lentils, in particular the lentils of Castelluccio di Norcia, probably recognized as the best in Italy. (B)
