Cooking class with Giacomo with sea view

The land where the lemons bloom: Nowhere else in Italy is this more true than on the beautiful Costiera Amalfitana. With great attention to detail, our hosts Suela and Andrea run the stylish Hotel Margherita, located directly above the coast—a cozy place where you can unwind and watch the sun rise over the sea. During a cooking class you will be introduced to the secrets of Amalfi cuisine. Together, we will prepare, among other things, ndunderi al limone, ricotta gnocchi with lemon that is popular here. On a culinary hike with Giacomo, explore the spectacular hillside village of Praiano and collect fresh herbs in the terraced gardens. Hike on the Sentiero dei Limoni panoramic path, experience the warmth and hospitality of a family in the mountains, and visit a lovingly tended olive grove in the magical town of Ravello. All this against the picturesque backdrop of the sea, surrounded by the scent of lemons.

Scenic Picnic with Domenico

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Transportation: Private Bus (1:00h)

Enjoy a delightful picnic with Amalfi specialties, while soaking in the breathtaking coastal vistas.

After an enjoyable breakfast, set off for Agerola, located on a high plateau between the Monti Lattari—the "Milk Mountains", which owe their name to the goats and cows that used to graze here and produce high quality milk. Agerola is still known today for its cheese specialties, especially the delicious mozzarella. From Agerola, you start your hike on the Sentiero degli Dei, or "Path of the Gods". This famous route follows ancient paths along the coast from Agerola to Nocelle and offers breathtaking views of the sea. According to legend, the Greek gods took this route to save Odysseus from the seductive sirens. And you'll actually feel like you've been transported back in time when you meet the locals carrying their freshly harvested produce from the surrounding terraced fields on mules. During the hike, enjoy a delicious picnic prepared by your guide Domenico and admire the beautiful views. The Hotel Margherita is located directly on the "Path of the Gods", so the hike leads directly back to your hotel. Take a break to enjoy the pool with its sea view. In the evening, the hotel kitchen awaits you with delicious dishes, such as squid stuffed with potatoes and provola cheese on pumpkin cream.

Amalfi Coast: Flavours of the sea - 7 Days

Der tatsächliche Ablauf der Reise war exakt so wie in der Beschreibung angekündigt. Die Mischung aus sportlicher und kulinarischer Betätigung war optimal. Die Termine (Uhrzeiten) waren sehr gut aufeinander abgestimmt, so dass nie Hektik aufkam. Dass unsere Reise insgesamt ein absolutes Highlight war, verdanken wir unserem Reiseleiter Domenico: überragende Deutschkenntnisse, verlässlich pünktliche Transfers, perfekte kulinarische Versorgung und Auswahl sowohl im Hotel als auch unterwegs, Eingehen auf persönliche Wünsche und fundierte Kenntnisse der besuchten Orte und Wanderwege. Die Anzahl von 8 Teilnehmern war perfekt.

Eine wunderschöne Reise zusammen mit tollen Menschen, faszinierender Natur, freundlichen Menschen, die uns Ihre Produkte mit Herzblut gezeigt haben und tollem Essen. Allen voran unser Reiseleiter Mimo, der uns mit ganz viel Herz durch seine Heimat begleitet hat. Als letztes Highlight hatte ich einen sehr engagieren Taxifahrer bei der Rückreise nach Neapel. Er hat eine besonders schöne Route über die Monte Lattari gewählt und unterhalten haben wir uns über ein Handyübersetzungsprogramm, das war sehr lustig.

Generell: Ich schätze bei Sapio, dass ich zu ausgesuchten Produzenten (Kräuterkunde, Mozarella, Wein, Olivenöl, Zitronen) geführt und nicht auf ausgetrampelte Touristenpfade geschickt werde. Ich habe die Kocherlebnisse, die Verpflegung in Agritourismi und und die Picknicks auf den Wanderungen (organisiert vom Reiseleiter) genossen. Bewertung Reiseleitung: Benchmark für mich ist die Reiseleitung vom letzten Mal (Tiziana in Trieste), der ich die vollen fünf Sterne gegeben habe.

FAQs

If the traveller withdraws before the start of the trip or does not start the trip, Ventura loses the right to the travel price. Instead, Ventura may demand reasonable compensation from the traveller. This shall not apply if Ventura is responsible for the cancellation or if unavoidable, extraordinary circumstances occur at the destination or in its immediate vicinity, which significantly impair the performance of the package tour or the transport of persons to the destination; circumstances are unavoidable and extraordinary if they are beyond the control of the party invoking them and their consequences could not have been avoided even if all reasonable precautions had been taken.

Ventura has defined this claim for compensation to which it is entitled in the following cancellation fees. The calculation is made taking into account the time of the cancellation declared by the traveller up to the contractually agreed start of the trip, the expected saving of expenses and the expected acquisition through alternative use of the travel services. The compensation shall be calculated as follows according to the time of receipt of the declaration of cancellation by Ventura or the travel agent:

a) General cancellation fee (as a percentage of the travel price):

For bookings in the CLASSIC fare: up to 65 days before departure 20% from the 64th to 30th day before departure 25% 45% from the 29th to 15th day before departure from the 14th to 7th day before departure 60% from the 6th day before departure 80% 90% on the day of departure and in the event of a no-show

For bookings in the FLEXI fare: up to 65 days before departure 0% from the 64th to the 45th day before departure 10% from the 44th to the 30th day before departure 20% from 29 days before departure, the cancellation fees are identical to those of the CLASSIC rate

b) Special cancellation fee:

Special offers/specials, individually prepared package tours and group tours may be subject to special cancellation conditions, to which explicit reference is made in the respective service description or travel advertisement/offer and the travel confirmation in accordance with Art. 250 §§ 3, 6 EGBGB.

Ventura reserves the right to demand higher, specifically calculated compensation instead of the above cancellation flat rates, insofar as Ventura can prove the occurrence of significantly higher expenses than the applicable cancellation flat rate.

We advise you to take out travel cancellation insurance, as it can always happen that you are unable to travel shortly before the departure date due to unforeseen illness, an accident or for other reasons. Repatriation assistance insurance is strongly recommended!

If you pay for your Feast trip with your VISA credit card, you are normally insured, but please ask your bank to confirm this. If you do not wish to take out insurance, Feast cannot be held liable.

Feast's travel insurance offer:

We offer 3 types of insurance (cancellation cover/all-round cover/travel cover) when you book online through our partner HanseMerkur. Of course, you can also contact other insurance companies of your choice.

The following links will take you to the insurance booking portal. After booking, you will receive your insurance documents and invoice directly from our partner HanseMerkur.

A deposit of 20% of the tour price is due upon receipt of the invoice. Please transfer the remaining payment no later than 21 days before departure. Bank transfers from Germany and other EU countries via IBAN and BIC are fast and inexpensive. You can also pay conveniently by credit card.

According to our terms and conditions, we can cancel the trip if the minimum number of participants is not reached up to 21 days before the start of the trip. As a rule, we will inform you one month in advance to discuss alternatives. You can then, for example, choose another date or an alternative trip. If these options are not suitable for you, we will refund the full travel costs already paid. However, it is rare that a trip cannot be realised. As soon as a trip is guaranteed to take place, we will highlight this on our "Dates & Prices" page.

You can start organising and booking your journey as soon as we have confirmed that the trip is guaranteed to take place. This happens at the latest approx. 30 days before the start of the trip. If the minimum number of participants has already been reached, you will of course be informed immediately.
