A note on meals:

All meals at 'Locanda dell'Asino d'oro' and wine are included in the price.

Friday and Sunday we will be dining out at other restaurants to add variety and for your to experience other Italian restaurants. (these evenings are at your cost)

Also note: the midday meal in Italy is the main meal of the day. The lunches provided by chef Pino at 'Locanda dell'Asino d'oro' are not your ham sandwich type.

The lunches are elaborate affairs in true Abruzzi, Italian style, with a variety of courses. 

Planning your trip:

A good idea when planning your trip, is to plan to arrive in Rome on Sunday or Monday, have a couple of days in Rome sightseeing, before meeting at Tiburtina Station, Rome and arriving at the venue on the Wednesday. 

This is why we have scheduled the classes to start on Thursday. 

Also, because there are not as many bus and rail services operating on a Sunday as other days of the week.
