You’ll rediscover a useful and valuable activity that’s deeply rooted in traditional cooking and medicine, now being revived by up-to-date educational ‘field trips’.The walk will take in meadows, lush fields and densely-enveloping woods where you’ll be able to discover different types of flowers and herbs with heady aromas and scents, bright colours and specific flavour profiles; you’ll train your eyes and your other senses in search of various species, rediscovering the genuine gifts of nature.You’ll be accompanied by our experts, who will be able to give you the information and explanations you need to recognize the different species. At the end of the walk, you will have the chance to create an herbarium with the different species collected during the day and you can round off the day by tasting particular dishes made with the fruit, flowers and herbs collected during the excursion.Whether you participate in the educational walk alone or share it with your family or friends, you’ll enjoy a pleasant and peaceful day rediscovering nature and its precious gifts.At the end of the experience you can taste what you’ve collected and other typical local produce over lunch or dinner (depending on whether you choose the morning or afternoon option) prepared by our collaborators, including two courses and drinks.
