Day 1: Arrival in Sant'Agata Feltria

Arrival and accommodation in the early afternoon. You will stay at a 3 star hotel in Sant’Agata Feltria, a small town with evocative landscapes and a fairytale fortress. The rest of the afternoon will be dedicated to visits to the surrounding area on your own.

For dinner you are expected in Talamello, the town of Fossa cheese, famous for its history and unmistakable flavour. It is said that in times past farmers, tired of sharing the fruits of their labour with their bosses, hid part of the cheese in pits dug into the stone. They discovered that, in that particular area, this practice not only succeeded in hiding part of the cheese, but also favoured its refinement, giving it a unique flavour!

Before dinner in Talamello, you will visit some cheese caves (dug in August and extracted in November). Immediately afterwards you will dedicate yourself to the tasting of this typical product with its intense flavour through a dinner based on a truly exceptional tasting menu!
