Day 1

Arrival and accommodation in the early afternoon. You will stay in 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 discovery of the surrounding area on your own.
For dinner you will be expected in Talamello, the town of Fossa cheese, famous for its history and unmistakable flavor. It is said that in the past farmers, tired of sharing the fruits of their labor 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 favored its refinement, giving it a unique flavor!
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 flavor through a dinner based on a truly exceptional tasting menu!
