Itinerary Photos

Wine stands out among the undisputed symbols of the “Made in Italy”, and the Bel Paese is indeed the largest wine producer in the world with its absolute excellences, unanimously appreciated by the international market. The vineyards represent a distinctive feature of Italy’s landscapes, from the Alps to its islands. This itinerary crosses three wonderful northern regions with a wine vocation: the Langhe, in Piedmont, named UNESCO World Heritage along with Roero and Monferrato (focusing on the local flagship, Barolo), Franciacorta, in Lombardy, famous for its bubbles, and Valpolicella, near Verona, where the famous Amarone is born. An immersion in the taste, the traditions, the history of the harmonious relationship that the Italian civilization has had with nature for millennia.
