Sapori e Saperi Adventures are vacations for people who daydream about finding a shepherdess on a hillside with her flock and being transported to her cantina to watch her make pecorino cheese; people who can't stare at a bottle of olive oil without wondering when and how the olives are picked, pressed and bottled; people who love to cook and eat.
The Adventures open locked doors to a brand new palette of exquisite flavours (sapori) and new skills and knowledge (saperi).
