A visit to the Cathedral will be very interesting because it houses the relics of San Timothy, disciple of Apostle Paul as well as Roman ruins.

After the tour, dinner with your new friends enjoying local food and wine.

Let’s “Roll up our sleeves” and learn about Italian cooking techniques and secrets in a friendly atmosphere. Polenta is an ancient dish made from corn flour and prepared daily in the past by the Molise farmers who had to deal with the few ingredients available. Today many people love to combine polenta with fish but not only! Afternoon free to have time to relax and enjoy the place. Dinner in town.

A tour to Castel del Giudice Village, in the nord of Molise, will be an extraordinary experience especially for cheese and apples lovers. You will visit the Organic Apple Orchard with a selection of 56 types of native apples of Abruzzo and Molise. Cooking show with Chef Alessandra di Paolo to transform Apples as well as Truffles in Menù. Molise has the supremacy, often unknown to non-professionals, of being the Italian region richer in truffles thanks to unspoiled natural habitat and It is estimated that 40% of truffle production in Italy comes from this small region.
