Travelling to Le Marche: Caves of Frasassi and Verdicchio Wine.

Let’s visit Frasassi Caves and admire the vineyards and the medieval villages. 

Let’s go among the legends, the magic, the flavors and the natural wonders of the typical Le Marche landscape, and look at the gentle hills and to the sea sloping.

After crossing the border of Emilia Romagna, we continue the trip along the Adriatic coast and go southward following Ancona. In our journey we’ll be with www.myownitaly.com a travel&tourism website where you can discover unusual and different itineraries in Italy.

The Grotte di Frasassi, in Le Marche region.

We begin our journey in Le Marche starting from Frasassi, one of the most famous villages of the region, located in the province of Ancona. Here since the 70’s, after a laborious and delicate work of digging, visitors could access to these spectacular caves.

The visit of the famous Frasassi Caves can be an experience full of surprises: the caves stretch for thirty kilometers and they are located on eight different levels, with millenary concentrations of limestone that formed stalactites and stalagmites of spectacular proportions that make up an incredible and unique natural sight.
A walk of about 1 hour and 15 minutes is accessible to everybody at a temperature of 14 degrees that is constant all the year round. That’s why they recommend to use comfortable shoes and a sweatshirt even during the summer months.

The “Abyss Ancona” is the first part of the cave and the researchers gave it the name of their city. It is a big cave, perhaps one of the deepest caves in Europe and in the world: 180 m. long, 120 m. large and 200 m. high. At the end of the “Abyss” it is possible to see a caotic hoard of blocks, results of movements and fallings down from time immemorial that gave origin to the abyss.

Enjoy Le Marche Wines.

After visiting the caves, it is also worth to make a stop at one of the many wine cellars that in this area produce a typical Le Marche white wine: the verdicchio wine. The best way to learn everything about any aspect of this wine is to understand the secrets of the traditional production: in order to learn more and more you might stop at the Cantina Colonnara, in Cupramontana: here the wines are obtained thanks to a perfect combination of different elements, such as the earth, the microclimate, the human labor.
The Colonnara wine farm consists of 100+ members and 100+ hectares of vineyards. You will appreciate a modern method of wine production and also the production of sparkling wines first with the Martinotti method (fermentation in barrel) in the 70s, then with the Classic Method Brut (bottle fermentation) since 1980.

We had a wonderful tour, best part about visiting the Modena region!

Emilia Delizia

The tour was perfect. I think Paolo would be a splendid ambassador for Italy in the EU. He knows how excellent Italian food and eating together can solve many major problems, and can stop aggressive behavior. Not the hunt for more money, but the well being of family and friends counts. Paolo shows us the products of ages of civilization and he did this like an artist. So after the tour we really love Italia more and we'll come back. We will call you Paolo, Thanks!

Following two tours with your guides this week I would like to express my thanks for some wonderful experiences.
Monday we did the tour of cheese making, balsamic and Salami which was very good and the guide Paolo was very knowledgeable.
The truffle hunt tour today was absolutely amazing, the guide Stefano is pure gold and the tour was built with much thought. Our best experience so far, by far.

Looking forward to more tours and fun next time we are in Italy.

Super food and super cars

The group (and me) was VERY satisfied. We really enjoyed the Parmegiano Regiano which was interesting and we got to buy some delicate and cheap cheese, the same with the balsamico. The Ferrari driving was off course an experience for life. The Winery lunch felt very genuine and the people there was really welcoming and nice people. The genuine feeling there was however the big plus for us.
Paolo was excellent as our guide. He also felt very genuine. He did not talk just for the sake of talking, but when he had something to say he did it in a respectful and nice way. Everyone in the group really liked him.

Thank you!

Lovely food tour and cooking class

Hi Gabriele:

I wanted to let you know what a great day we had this past Friday on our tour with Jacamo. (Probably not spelling it right) He was very nice and explained everything to us. It sure gives you a new appreciation when you are slicing cheese. 🙂 Our tour ended with him taking us to the vineyard for a tour and lunch and there, Paolo, the owner could not have been more nicer. It was a perfect ending.

Please let Jacamo know what a great job he did and how much we really appreciated it and his knowledge

Food tour in Modena

The website is well structured and we received a prompt answer to all questions. Gabriele supported us with all information we needed and the organization before the trip was excellent.
We had an air conditioned van, which was very relaxing through the whole tour. The first stop was the parmigiano production, which was very impressive and interesting. We could learn and especially see all the different steps and even taste the various aged parmigiano. The second step was the balsamic vinegar tasting. Finally the meat part was interesting in the museum but we hoped that we also could see more about the production and their work, but the tasting was delicious. In overall we had a very informative and well accommodated half day with our guide

Fantastic Tour!!

It was great experience! We visited Parmesan cheese production, Balsamic vinegar farm, Ham museum and Farmer's lunch. Our guide gave us a detailed explanation, we were very satisfied. An excellent tour for a reasonable price, highly recommended.

Gourmet tour

Nous sommes une famille de cinq et nous avons adoré notre expérience. Les trois endroits étaient choisis judicieusement. Notre guide était très généreuse et super gentille. Nous recommandons ce tour ( parmesan, vinaigre balsamique et jambon de parme).

Tour Extraordinaire!

My family felt our first trip to Italy must include a tour of a Parmesan Cheese Factory so when I stumbled on this website several months ago I had no idea what I treasure I found! From the moment I submitted a request for the tour, my experience with Emilia Delizia was first rate. Gabriele provided excellent customer service by patiently answering all my questions to guide me through the selection and reservation of our Foodie Delight Tour. Paolo, our driver, was prompt, cordial and knowledgeable about the processes we were observing and the area in general conveying loads of information with his well-developed English speaking skills. Our stop in Modena fell on a Saturday so we were quite fortunate to end up with a private tour which allowed us to have a nice, personal interaction with the people at each site. Everyone was friendly, generous with the tastings and we never felt rushed to move along to the next location. Now that we have returned to the states, my family agrees this tour was a highlight of our 10 day trip. I was really looking forward to this excursion and am glad to report it exceeded my expectations.
