We spent the first week of November with Christina et al at "The Palace," and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more....The staff, from Christina to Dino & Cheryl to Graciamo and Sara and Davida were all incredibly warm, helpful, accommodating, and very knowledgeable about all things Italy! We (12 couples) had four "classes" where we spent several hours preparing/then eating... More

The Palazzo Tour d'Eau is billed as a cooking school, and you do learn a fair amount about the cuisine of Abruzzo and how to prepare several dishes. But it is not a hard-core chef's school experience. Instead, it is a fun, anyone can do it week of excellent food, sightseeing and learning hosted by the friendliest staff anyone could... More

A perfect week----fantastic accomidations, staff, activities, classes! What more could you want!?! Wine and food at all meals were included, delicious and plentiful. The pizza party on Friday night was the perfect way to end a perfect week.

As the title of this review suggests, you will fall in love with the Palazzo Tour d'Eau, the town of Carunchio, the entire staff, and the entire experience.

My sister and I have travelled numerous times to Italy, but never as part of an organized "tour", so I really didn't know what to expect. Our week was filled with wonderful food, wine, new friends, fun, food, wine, laughter, food, love, wine, music, sights, sounds (loved those church bells), cooking classes, and outdoor experiences. Oh, did I mention FOOD... More

I traveled with my best friend, who also happens to be my sister, to Massimo's Palazzo Tour d'Eau in November 2014. We had often talked about a "cooking vacation" in Italy and decided to take the plunge - it was by far one of our BEST sister's getaways EVER! We were in a group of 10 and many were returning...

I just returned to the US from the MOST AMAZING adventure I have ever had! My sister booked this tour, before I moved in with her, as an experience she could enjoy with her daughter. Due to unforeseen circumstances my niece was unable to take that much time off so I was chosen to be her stand-in! What a stroke... More

Our group of six friends just returned from a week at the Palazzo Tour D'Eau. Having read all of the reviews on Trip Advisor, I anticipated that we were in for a treat when I booked this culinary tour. What I did not expect was that it would be even better than I dreamed! Twenty six strangers were picked up... More
