Our experience takes about 3 hours, we'll meet in the morning at 10am and head out to explore the Bari coastline. We will meet at the Marina inside the commercial port where the boat is moored, and we will sail away for our experience. We will head north to the wind allowing and we will walk along the city, we will admire the Basilica of San Nicola,the Cathedral and the evocative wall that surrounds the old city. We will stop at the old port of Bari, where fishermen land, where we will enjoy a typical Bari aperitivo and after spending a few hours of pure relaxation, adrenaline and fun you enter the port.

Pasta Making with a Grandma and Tour of the People of Bari
After an introduction of the history of the old town and the local customs of the Old Town People, we will join the house of a Grandma, a real pasta maker, not a usual cooking school! During the experience you will taste a sample of "Orecchiette" made by you with homemade ragù!
Pasta From Apulia & dinner in garden
You will be fascinated by the anecdotes about how my grandmother prepared the pasta and what the kitchen represented in the past and in part still represent. An immersion in the real life of Puglia and Italian sociology! I will let Elisa, my friend and precous collaborator as a super expert in the Apulian pasta, communicate with the gestures and with the example; she does not speak ehglish but she will always be able to communicate with the heart and experience. And once you will be at home producing your own good food, will be precious the memory of what she showed you. I will instead communicate, if necessary at the same time, in English, Italian and French and you will probably laugh at my flights from one language to another and my role as a "slave in the kitchen of Elisa":-) allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home. The wine, the foods that I serve together with the pasta that we prepare together and that are all local and largely fruit of my organic vegetable garden, do the rest. The lunch that follows is collaborative, all peoples help and, crockery and pans in the hands, all peoples invade my house too, with my great pleasure because this allows me to tell still so much of Puglia through the many typical objects that I collect at home. The wine, the foods that I serve together with the pasta that we prepare together and that are all local and largely fruit of my organic vegetable garden, do the rest. Other things to note we speaks also in english and french
