Activities and Classes

Lots of activities–relaxation

At Borgo Personatina, there are many available activities on request, to make the most of your vacation and relaxation time.

Orsa Pellion di Persano is in charge

The activities proposed by Orsa at Agriturismo Borgo Personatina must be requested when you make your reservation.

Cooking school

Orsa is happy to teach the lessons at the cooking school either in Italian or in English.

Lessons and courses are organized on the request of guests interested in delving into the area’s rich culinary tradition or who want to concentrate on individual Italian gastronomic themes.

The lessons’ approach is both technical and cultural. They offer the opportunity to learn to create a true menu that combines the fragrances and flavors of Tuscan cuisine, as well as to learn about the history, customs and traditions of the dishes and local eating habits.

It is also possible to request three-hour private lessons, followed by a tasting of the dishes prepared, or short afternoon classes spread out over three days with at least one morning dedicated to food shopping in a
fruit and vegetable market in the surrounding towns.

Food and wine excursions

· Visit to a dairy factory, with a tasting of cheeses
· Visit to wineries, with tastings of Chianti and Montalcino
· Visit to a laboratory where pork is processed, with tastings (cinta senese)
· In season, a harvest of olives and a tasting of  “new oil” (November – December) 
· Gastronomic tour of the city of Siena, to learn about the cuisine of Siena and its famous medieval pastry shop
· Guided gastronomic tour of the market of S. Lorenzo in Florence and lunch in a typical osteria in town.
