In the morning you will go to Altilia that covers about 12 hectares and is surrounded by defensive walls with four main gates. The layout of the town is clearly visible and its most important structures were its temples, Forum, Basilica, Baths and its ‘Macellum’ or indoor market. The most intact building is the Theatre which is horse-shoe shaped and surrounded by 18th century houses built of stone taken from the theatre itself! These buildings have been completely restored and now are home to the archaeological museum. We will be fascinated by the atmosphere of the Roman time, away from mass tourism. After the visit of Altilia we will visit the area of La Piana dei Mulini that once was a Watermill. In the early nineteenth century it became a farmhouse and a center for the coloring of wool; then it was transformed into a hydroelectric plant. Today, La Piana dei Mulini is a SIC site, a site of European Community Interest and is supervised by the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities.
At La Piana dei Mulini you will enjoy a Cooking Class based on ancient Roman recipes with Alessandra, archaeologist and expert in ancient gastronomy. Lunch on your creations enjoying the company of your new friends.
In the afternoon, after a relaxing walk and coffee along the River Biferno, back to Termoli.
After some rest, dinner in town.
