A Culinary and Cultural Month in Tuscany & Umbria






A Culinary & Cultural Journey in Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, Italy
September 1 - October 8, 2017 



Scrumpdillyicious will be touring Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio exploring the rich cultural and culinary pulse of these gorgeous regions of central Italy. Join me online each day as we journey through Tuscany, Umbria, Lazio and the historic hilltowns in between, capturing all of the robust flavours and breathtaking natural beauty of this rich landscape of gentle green valleys, soaring mountains, glittering lakes and silver olive groves.

Our Culinary Journey will take us from the luxurious La Suvera, the historic Renaissance Borgo in the Chianti region of Tuscany to our lovely hilltop villa in the Umbrian countryside for a glorious month exploring this breathtaking area of Italy. We'll visit Perugia, Siena, Assisi, Pienza, Arezzo, Orvieto, Gubbio, Lago Bolsena, Todi and the walled medieval hill town of San Gimignano famous for its skyline of medieval towers. An ancient land which has been at the crossroads of many people and cultures for millennia, our home base of Umbria is still as unspoiled and peaceful as the days Renaissance painters immortalized it. Offering one of Italy's most authentic cuisines, the region is famous for its black truffles, Valnerina lentils, robust pastas, superb pecorino cheese, fragrant wines and acclaimed Perugian chocolates. Andiamo - let's go!
