  • The treasures of Umbria

    The rather harsh Umbrian countryside is dotted with hidden treasures in the midst of its hills, woods and streams. It also produces wonderful food which accurately reflects the nature of the land it springs from, the best known being extra-virgin olive oil from Spello, black truffles, Norcia cured ham and lentils from Castelluccio.

  • Bassano del Grappa: white asparagus territory

    Delicious and good for you, asparagus is the spring vegetable par excellence. White, green, cultivated or wild, asparagus is grown in many parts of Italy, but especially in the north. And one of the best known asparagus-growing areas is around Bassano, in the province of Vicenza. Exploring the places where asparagus is grown, and trying all those dishes it features in, is a pleasantly unusual theme for a weekend spring break in the Veneto region, famous for its history and great food.
