A 15-minute drive and we will start our day with a tasting of typical Abruzzo antipasto in the countryside, where you will meet nonna Emilia and start getting ready for your cooking class. You will learn how to prepare two typical recipes and then you will eat your lunch with a good glass of Abruzzo wine. We will have some time for a homemade espresso and relax in sunny Italian countryside. We will leave at about 3/3:30pm for the enchanting village of Atri, where you will be amazed by its beautiful old centre, with its cathedral and theatre. Why don't we indulge in a gelato and a visit to a candy shop to buy some of Atri's famous licorice?
