Italy. Just the mention of the word seems enough to start the magic. This country, so filled with beauty, so inhabited by passionate people, so based in earthly rhythms has so very much to teach us.
Enjoy the pleasures of small town Italian life, while developing your creative potential with Adventures in Italy. Join the quintessential Italian hilltop experience with the pursuit of a creative passion, or simiply explore the Italian art for living in an unforgettable week in Umbria's Orvieto.
With Adventures in Italy, curious, adventuresome, lifelong learners enjoy Italy's culture and passion for artful living through our creative exploration workshops, or in our immersive food, wine, and culture trips. Savor Italy through creative expression and living life like Italians.
In the creative exploration workshops, days are a mix of very local cultural experiences and studio time in which to interpret, record, visualize, and capture daily experiences. Our food, wine, and culture trips, called Discover Orvieto and Taste of Orvieto, have you exploring cheese, olive oil, wine, cooking and more in a deep way.
In our creative exploration trips teachers are artists, but they are teachers first. Regardless of skill level, everyone learns. Teachers care about you being free to express your own creativity without rules. As gifted artists our teachers share their talent. Beginner and expert alike are welcome.
All trips are designed to live like locals, savoring and enjoying life in Italy. You stay in Orvieto for a week to get to know it, its people, and its environs. Most meals are not prearranged, enabling you to choose where and what to eat, exploring the foods and wines that interest you. Guidance on local food and customs and wine is given, but the choices are yours. One evening you will work with a local chef to cook your own meal.
Accommodations are in a renovated, comfortable, hundreds years old former palace, now a bed and breakfast, run by 3 charming, welcoming nuns. Each room has its own, full bath. It is truly a home, providing the very real opportunity to enjoy a taste of Italian life.
All of this takes place in Orvieto, a medieval city built atop an Etruscan network of caves. The population on “the rock” is about 6500 - a cozy, intimate small town. Its history dates to 800 BC, the Etruscan roots strongly influencing the city's life. It has what is, arguably, the best Gothic cathedral in Italy. Orvieto is flat, with meandering Medieval streets of cobblestone. It sits atop a volcanic plug of rock 700 feet above the valley floor, and is reached by funicular. It is impossible to get lost. Orvieto and its environs is known for its olive oil and wine, and for its superb cuisine – all of which are introduced to you through a variety of adventures.
