This tour is designated for people that want to cook, but instead of staying at the Palazzo in Carunchio (mountain top village, rural, real Italy experience, with the accomodation being in a historic castle), you will be staying in a ancient but larger town called Termoli. It is located right on the coast.
This tour is dedicated for people that love fish and seafood. Here, in Termoli, it doesn’t get fresher than that! But mind, it’s not all about fish. The accomodation is the Residenza Sveva. This is also a unique experience because you will be staying in cottages that used to be the residence of fisherman. All refurbished in style, proving an incredible experience. This is our sister company. The staff, including the chefs and the guides have been trained by same people that provide the same amazing experience at the Palazzo Tour d’Eau. Only the best.
