You will take a tour with the guide Luciano and the nature guide Federico.

Today, the park is home to a diverse flora and fauna, but it's especially known for the cultivation of lentils, spelt, and the red potato (Colfiorito IGP). The name Colfiorito means "flowering pass", because in June, when the lentils bloom, the pass transforms into a sea of colors.

In the evening, you can look forward to dinner at Gianfranco's agriturismo, where you can relax and share your experiences with your new friends and Luciano.

Luciano

Your guide for this tour

Luciano Gassi commutes between the two worlds: Living in southern Germany as an Italian with Franconian-Apulian roots, he not only knows how to unite the two mentalities, but also how to mediate as an Italian lecturer. He is drawn to Italy several times a year, especially to his second homeland of Apulia. The excellent, authentic cuisine and outstanding wines of the region are also a source of inspiration for his passion for cooking, which he enthusiastically passes on in his cooking courses and elsewhere.

The indicated flight times and airlines may change, as we have to plan well in advance of the day of departure.

SAPIO Umbria Trevi

Umbria: Gastronomic Treasures - 7 Days

Insider

June 2024

Die Olivenölverkostung in unserer Übernachtungs-Agriturismo war sehr spannend und auch informativ. Die Olivenöle selber sind fantastisch. Bei Leonardo dem Rinderzüchter mit viel Interesse an der CO2-Neutralität seiner Ställe, konnte man den Rindern die Zufriedenheit ansehen. Auch hier hatten wir viele Informationen bekommen, aber auch sehr viel gelacht. Die Anschließende Verkostung seiner Steaks in einem anliegendem Restaurant war genial. Das Fleisch ist uns auf der Zunge zergangen. Die Weinproben und auch die Besichtigung des Gemüseanbau waren ein Genuss, die dazu gereichten 'Häppchen' haben uns ganz gut gesättigt, sodass wir uns bemühen mussten die folgenden Mahlzeiten aufzuessen. Was aber durch die schmackhaften Gerichte kein Problem war.

June 2024

Es war die Pionierreise nach Umbrien und ich habe sie sehr genossen. Umbrien besticht durch seine grüne, hügelige Landschaft, die sich mit mit pittoresken Dörfern oder Städtchen mit lang zurückreichender Geschichte abwechselt, wunderbaren kulinarischen Produkten und bodenständigen, herzlichen Menschen. Unser Agriturismo war ein Beispiel dafür. Bei Giancarlo muss man sich einfach wohlfühlen: hübsche, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Zimmer im Landhaus-Stil, Frühstück bei Maria mit Spezialitäten Umbriens, z.B. dem umbrischen Apfelstrudel Rocciata und das hervorragende Olivenöl der Ciarlettis direkt vor Augen. Die Besichtigung und Verkostung der Produktionsanlage war sehr beeindruckend. Alles in allem die perfekte Mischung zwischen Kulinarik, Abenteuern (Trüffelsuche) und Kultur (Assisi). Ein bis zwei Tage länger wären wunderbar gewesen.

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.

You can book your travel insurance at any time from the moment you book your trip up to 30 days before the start of your trip.

No, all our tours include an individual journey in order to avoid unnecessary national bundled flights and to give you the opportunity to organise your journey individually.

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 fly to Rome by plane. From the airport, take the Leonardo Express to Roma Termini railway station. From Roma Termini station, take the train to Trevi.

We recommend our transfer service, which can be booked from Trevi station depending on your arrival time. You can select the transfer when booking or simply let us know and we will organise it for you.
