At Monticelli we organize also courses of the Italian language. However, as an interesting alternative we can organize courses of Italian combined with cooking lessons and with dinners and wine tasting. Wouldn’t this alternative be easier and more fun? We can start the course at Monticelli and continue in the best restaurants of the area, all selected for the quality of their dishes and their special atmosphere.
Around Monticelli Castle there is a very large number of very old castles, monasteries, chapels with beautiful frescoes lost in the forests or in small medieval hamlets. There are also historic palaces with beautiful Italian gardens. For the high concentration of buildings of historic interest and for the beauty of the landscapes, the Italian Government has listed in May 2015 an area of 60 square kilometres around Monticelli. We organize guided tours with an explanation in Italian or in English of their very long history. Sometimes, if the owners are present, we have the privilege of having an aperitif with them.
