Gourmand Weekend!

Eating good food is certainly one of the best ways we have to enjoy life: and now that we're in a more favorable season, it's even easier to organize a little trip. So maybe we should combine these two things and think about a nice destination, famous for its fine food, and enjoy a couple of lovely days. Here are a few suggestions you might find useful!

Sauris – In the heart of Carnia, the town of Sauris really has a magical kind of charm, both for its old and typical architecture and for the nature surrounding it. In the summer, the many paths that lead to the “malghe” give a great opportunity to enjoy a nice walk in the open. But the name of Sauris is not only linked to the silent beauty of these places. The Sauris ham is a typical product, and it is one of the best in the world. There's also a special event dedicated to this delicacy, which takes place in July.

Castelluccio di Norcia – This wonderful village is in Umbria, in the middle of the Monti Sibillini Park. And it's famous for a couple of different reasons: one is the incredible scenic route that leads to the town, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the underlying plateau, one of the widest in Italy. In springtime, the plateau explodes with colors, thanks to the unsurpassed flowering: something that should be seen at least once in a lifetime. Castelluccio is also famous for the great quality of its lentils, a real italian delicacy. And by the way, Norcia, a crucial place for italian charcuterie, is only a few kilometers ahead.

Val Taleggio – Its name, at least in Italy, is immediately associated to the famous cheese, Taleggio indeed. But apart from this aged “stracchino”, without any doubt one of the most typical and amazing italian products, it really could be a good idea to go exploring this beautiful valley, still a bit far away from usual touristic routes, and for this reason still genuine and intact. It will be the perfect occasion to discover steep mountains, lush woods and sweet and ample meadows, where cows graze to then give the milk used to create the tasteful Taleggio.

But don't forget to bring with you a Carpisa travel bag, so that you can have on hand everthing you need: like for instance the large Sesto Travel Bag or the functional Vilnius Duffle! Have yourself a nice trip and...bon appétit!
