NOTE: If you wish, it is also possible to combine the Pasta Tour with a visit to Herculaneum instead of Pompeii.
This tour option will have us leaving your accommodation and heading for Pompeii, the 2,000 year old Roman city which was all but annihilated in 79 AD when Vesuvius unexpectedly blew its top, covering the city and most of its inhabitants in 8 meters of ash and rubble. Here you are able to walk the streets of this town frozen in time where the temples, baths, villas, gardens and brothels from 2 centuries ago are still standing.
Following your visit to Pompeii, we will travel to Gragnano, better known as “the European capital of pasta” We will have the pleasure of taking you to a pasta factory, not only for a tour, but to give you an incredible family experience that you won’t forget.
Discover why this village has been recognised for centuries as the best quality pasta producer but not only that… See how the pasta is processed, dried and why not also taste it when it is still being processed?
You will taste the freshness and quality of the wheat in its various stages.
But I haven’t told you yet about the best part of the day… after seeing all this pasta you absolutely can’t go without without tasting it.
So let’s go first into the family garden to pick vegetables together and then sit down at a table just for you with a view of the kitchen, where you can watch on as the “mamma” masterfully prepares some of delicious dishes, accompanied by fresh local wine and the warmth of a small family happy to share some time with you.
The moment to say goodbye is made more beautiful by a little surprise gift, that will help you take the memories of this experience forever with you.
RECOMMENDATION: Visit the archeological site of Pompeii with a PRIVATE GUIDE for a much more rewarding experience.
