Ausflüge (inklusive)

Convivio Rome Italian Cookery Holidays in the heart of Italy also include two-afternoon excursions, including a guided tour of an ancient monastic village dating back to the 6th century and a guided walk through an olive grove where you will learn more about the ancient art of making olive oil. Regional wines and extra virgin olive oils will also be sampled during our Italian cooking classes and holidays. Your free time will give you a chance to sit at the cafe/bar and watch the locals, take a stroll, take photographs, draw or paint or just enjoy what the Sabina region, between Rome and Umbria, has to offer.



Toffia is an ancient medieval village where your accommodation is located. Participants of the Italian cooking holidays (or Italian cookery vacations) become part of a vibrant Italian rural community, while they enjoy cooking, eating, sampling wine, and relaxing. One of the most unspoiled and better kept medieval hilltop villages in Italy, Toffia is conveniently situated between Rome and Umbria and is full of ancient restored palazzos, churches, and small piazzas from which it is possible to admire sweeping views of olive groves and vineyards in the surrounding valleys. Like other villages in the region, Toffia’s beauty has not been yet discovered by mass tourism and retains all its authenticity.


The Italian cooking holidays and cooking classes near Rome have been designed to share Convivio Rome's love for Italian cuisine, particularly Roman and Tuscan cuisine, in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Set in Sabina, one of the most unspoiled areas of Italy, north of Rome, and not far from Umbria and Tuscany, these cookery courses are easy to follow, creative, and fun. During the cooking classes based in a family home, near a medieval hilltop village, you can participate in the preparation of wonderfully authentic Italian food or simply sit back, relax, and sip on a glass of wine while food is prepared in front of you.

Freizeitaktivitäten und Sehenswürdigkeiten (optional)


Another unspoiled medieval hilltop village you can visit during your Convivio Rome Italian cooking holiday, Castelnuovo was an important city in medieval times. Due to its very high position on a hilltop, it has majestic views over the Sabine Hills and was built to protect other medieval villages close by, including Farfa. It has handsome renaissance palazzi, ancient alleyways, beautifully restored homes, and historical bakery preserved for viewing. As usual in Sabina, there are no huge car parks or souvenir shops here! Moreover, Castelnuovo is famous for its Sabina extra virgin olive oil production.

Sabina, the perfect setting for a cooking holiday

Between Rome, Umbria, and Tuscany, Sabina is central Italy's best-kept secret. More rural and densely green than Tuscany and Umbria, it is also a lot less tourist-plundered. It has olive groves, vineyards, and medieval hilltop stone villages; but more than anything, Sabina has true ingredients in its fields and woods which have earned it the label paradiso gastronomic’. This is why Sabina is the ideal location for the Italian cooking holidays.

In spring and summer, the land is patch worked in delicious and coniferous Botticelli greens. Hills are laced with narrow white tracks and roads that loop like spaghetti, reaching villages and hamlets that cluster on the hilltops. Wheat fields are strewn with poppies, and slopes are neatly planted with groves of olive trees. Wild greens are collected in a countryside ritual, with the tenderest shoots eaten as salad. In winter and early spring fruit trees are bursting with the sweetest oranges, apples and pears of all different shapes and sizes. June is the month for cherries, beautifully dark red and very sweet. In summer and until autumn, you’ll see peaches, apricots and fresh figs everywhere.

However, olive oil remains the key economic food resource due to quality single-estate oils that are so low in acidity they are extra smooth and rich. Every village grocer has its own cured meats and salami counter. Boxwood crates of locally harvested produce, from baby purple artichokes to the speckled pink pods of borlotti beans, are displayed in tiers. Sabina is truly a magical land of panoramic views across its valleys, olive groves and vineyards, fields of sunflowers and wild Mediterranean herbs, medieval hilltop villages, castles, and majestic Roman ruins set in wild nature.

Swimming pool

An excellent swimming pool is available nearby Toffia and Farfa in the summer months. This pool is unique, as it only uses the purest local spring water. If you wish, Convivio Rome are more than happy to organize a taxi for you to go to the pool and return you to Toffia, during your free time.

The Monastery of Farfa

Nearby Toffia is Farfa Abbey, one of the most important monasteries in European history, more influential and powerful than Cluny in France. Founded in the VII century, Farfa became imperial monastery under Charlemagne. Vast territories of central Italy belonged to Farfa, including the cities of Siena, Perugia, Assisi and many others. Still today this monastic complex looks majestic, with a basilica, a tower-library containing thousands of rare manuscripts, artist’ workshops and buildings all dating back to the middle ages. Farfa was also featured in the third episode of Jamie Oliver’s TV show "Jamie’s great escape".

The village of Farfa in Sabina has an interesting number of shops, all relevant to our gourmet and cookery holidays and vacations. This includes the monastery’s herbalist shop, the oleoteca where local extra virgin olive oils are sold and an award winning hand-made fabric shop. The delicatessen sells cheeses and wines from Sabina. Farfa is one of the hidden treasures that can be visited during your Italian cookery holidays.
