    Best part of our vacation!

    My family and I recently took a long-awaited vacation in Italy, during which we stayed in Rome, Cossignano, and Venice. There were 8 of us traveling together, 6 adults and 2 teenagers. We stayed in flats at each location, and our stay at Palazzo Massi Fassitelli was the best by far. …The whole reason we visited Cossignano was to visit the Fiorano Agriturismo, as I have been enjoying their organic olive oils at home for a while and wanted to see the grove. (Incidentally, I actually found the Palazzo through the Agriturismo, since they are both owned by the same family.) I highly recommend a visit to the farm for a wine and olive oil tasting. The entire farm is organic and produces the best wine and olive oil that we had in all of Italy, Paola and Paolo (husband and wife team) speak excellent English and gave us a fantastic tour of their farm and winery. We will definitely come back to visit both places again!
