Travel to Prosecco Hills

Your adventure begins in either Venice, where you’ll hop into a comfortable minivan and embark on a scenic ride to the UNESCO-listed Prosecco Hills. Nestled in the heart of Italy’s Veneto region, you’ll soon be surrounded by picturesque vineyards, rolling hills, and ancient villages.

Once you’ve reached Valdobbiadene, deemed the home of Prosecco, you’ll embark on a gentle walk through vineyards alongside a nature guide. Learn about the essence and history of Italy’s cherished sparkling wine while taking in delightful views of the surrounding serene landscapes.

Wine Tasting in an Ancient Wine Cellar

Soon, your journey brings you to an ancient wine cellar, where the history of Prosecco-making comes alive. Step back in time while enjoying the intimate and rustic atmosphere of the cellar, which provides the ideal backdrop to your wine-tasting experience. Sip and learn about three different varieties, and tease your palate with delectable cheese and cold cuts sourced locally.

Delight in a Traditional Lunch

With your taste buds yearning for more, you’ll be delighted to head inside a local restaurant for lunch. Enjoy the company of your fellow group members and guide while diving into a typical lunch consisting of a first course, second course, side dishes, and dessert. Throughout the lunch, you’ll also be treated to complimentary coffee, water, and wine, ensuring you leave feeling satisfied by the delicious food and great company.

Journey Along San Boldo Pass

After lunch, your journey continues to the scenic San Boldo Pass. This winding mountain road showcases an intricate network of tunnels and bridges, and as your driver expertly navigates its switchbacks, you’ll be blown away by the impressive views of the valleys below. During the drive, you’ll also learn about its nickname, the “100 days road,” which refers to its construction in just a few months during World War I to provide a critical route for moving troops and supplies.

Explore Cison di Valmarino

Your final destination for the day is Cison di Valmarino, which effortlessly holds the title of one of Italy's most beautiful villages. Leave the minivan behind for a lovely guided walk, where you’ll discover historic fountains and washhouses and meander past picturesque canals and ancient mills.

As you stroll, every corner of this village seems to echo with tales of times gone by, and your expert guide will have just the stories to share to bring the village’s past to life. However, with daylight dwindling, it’ll soon be time to hop back in the minivan for your return journey, and you can expect to be back in Venice at 7:30 pm.
