Tucked away in a secret valley in one of the last undiscovered corners of Tuscany – Monte Amiata, Castello di Potentino, an ancient castle built on a historical Etruscan site, will be our home throughout our stay in beautiful Italy. The medieval building, surrounded by unspoilt countryside, is surrounded by the vines and the ancient olive trees used for the estate’s small production of high quality wine, grappa and oil. Bought and restored in 2000 by the Greene family, the castle has become a dynamic cultural gem of Italy.
While in Galway, Ireland, we will be staying at the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa with beautiful views of Lough Atalia and Galway Bay, centrally located in the heart of the city with access within walking distance to great pubs, incredible restaurants and, of course, the site of the 2016 Food On The Edge Symposium.
On ground transportation (return-trip) from Rome to Tuscany; all tours taking place at the Castello di Potentino; flight from Rome to Dublin (Oct 22/16); on ground transfer to and from Dublin to Galway, Ireland; a tour of the Burren Food Trail; and a complete 2-day event pass to the 2016 Food On The Edge Symposium; are included in the price of the tour.
