    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here you will have the opportunity of meeting travellers from all over the world as well as the locals. You will get to see how olive oil and wine are made in a very special rural area.After walking 8 miles to a train station on Easter Sunday at six in the morning (no buses that day ) a guest wrote to tell me: now I know why this is the land that inspired Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and other great artists!
