Experience - The ultimate Abruzzo experience
Food, wine, cooking classes and walks: the most genuine Italian atmosphere just a two-hour drive from Rome! Discover Abruzzo, its stunning places and rich culinary tradition with 100% locals!
Maple&Saffron are Alessia&Fabrizio, two enthusiastic foodie travellers! Passionate about cooking and traditional dishes of Italy, we climbed up the Alpine peaks to taste the specialties of little cheese farms, sailed the Adriatic Sea to reach the authentic seafood of South Italy; we both learned how to cook Abruzzo traditional dishes from our grandmothers and deeply know our amazing region and what it can offer to food and wine lovers!
Abruzzo: from the sea to the mountains for a holiday you’ll never forget!
Just two hours from Rome, Abruzzo has a central position in Italy, which makes it a perfect place to travel around the country. This almost-unknown gem between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea has a history that goes back in centuries: Greeks and Romans have left their traces and traditions, enriching Abruzzo culture with their monuments, churches and old towns. Its little old villages, where time seems to stand still; its green and rich hills, where olive groves and vineyards generously bear their fruit every year; its high mountains, which still keep the ancient traditions alive.
