Our experiences

The B&B Don Gaspano has created various experiences to help you discover the beauty of our region and the most ancient local traditions, from antique embroidery techniques to the delicious arabesque recipes that characterise our cuisine.

We created most of our experience in collaboration with Creative Italy, an extraordinary reality committed to supporting the local artisans and spreading the real Made in Italy culture.

We always do our best to ensure you can enjoy our experiences within and outside our B&B, even if you book at the very last minute! However, we recommend booking at least 3 weeks in advance to secure your spot.
