To get to know what a country is really about, it’s not enough to only discover the culture, the landscapes and cities, but also to explore and experience the secrets of the local cuisines. Prepare delicate meals with local meat and fish, locally grown and harvested vegetables and fruits and of course the world famous Mediterranean olive oil.
