Arriving in beautiful Amelia, Umbria

Arriving in beautiful Amelia, Umbria

Day 1 - Benvenuti in Italia!

We checked in at Palazzo Venturelli, a 16th century magnificently restored palace in the heart of Amelia, Umbria.

Beautifully appointed rooms,
magnificent views from every window

We were treated to a beautiful concert of piano and soprano in the music room before dinner. Then the musical guests, the owners of the palace, Gugliermo and Rita, and their manager, Michela, cooked us a wonderful dinner in the granary, which we all sat down to eat together.

What a wonderful welcome and beginning to our week-long adventure to discover and taste and learn about the culinary traditions and culture of Umbria.
