Cooking Class + Olive oil Tour
One Full Cooking Day in Italy, Umbria
In Umbria Extra virgin olive oil is called “the Green Gold” . Our region is probably the region with the best olive oil quality in all of Italy.
Olive oil has been produced in Umbria for more than two thousand years. It was introduced into this area probably around the 6th century BC, and then spread throughout most of peninsular Italy.
In 1998, Umbria was the first Italian region to obtain the DOP (Protected Designation of Origin or DOP) quality mark from the European Union for the extra virgin olive oil produced throughout the territory.
This experience includes a visit to a farm producing extra virgin olive oil near Bettona.
Reservations are on request for any day, year round, based upon availability, for a minimum of two people. If you are a Solo Traveller check the page Solo Travellers and contact us to discuss the date you can join in a booked group.
