Enjoy the famous wines: Brunello of Montalcino, Vino Nobile of Montepulciano, Sagrantino of Montefalco and the classic white of Orvieto! Food harvest festivals range from asparagus in April to strawberries in June, Truffles in July and October, and Porcini mushrooms in September. We can arrange local wild asparagus, truffle or mushroom hunting. Local chefs teach guests to make typical Umbrian cuisine. Swim and water sports at our local Water Park or the largest lake in the Italian Peninsula, Lago Trasimeno is only 25 km.

"Breath-taking!"

Our week long stay at il Forno L'Antica Vetreria was perfect! Our hosts, Colleen and Tom, made sure we were able to enjoy Piegaro, as well as many magnificent, nearby towns. We met two other couples (from college days) and we enjoyed touring, shopping, dining, laughing and feeling "treated." The website has many photos of the town and surrounding areas of interest. One night, after dinner, we walked the quiet streets of Piegaro back to our suite and I felt as if I were in a movie set. The weather, vistas and history make this Italian getaway more than memorable.
