Umbria / Tuscany
This tour is perfect for those who wish to take a flavours of history and enjoy the taste of white and red Wines in the countryside of Tuscany.
Your Tour will begin from your hotel at 7.00 am.
Upon our arrival, we will visit the Cantina Foresi, which is in the beautiful setting in the main Square of Orvieto. Here in the old Foresi wine cellar you will have the opportunity of tasting some of the best Italian white wines which you just might not be able to find at home!Here you will taste the Orvieto classico, Sassicaia, Tignanello, Sagrantino di Montefalco, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico and Ornellaia. Those excellent wines are mainly made from a blend of mostly Grechetto and Trebbiano. The region has been producing wine since the middle ages, and today’s white Orvieto is dry, but a semi-sweet style.
You will then have some free time where you might enjoy shopping in a very interesting ceramics store like “ Ceramiche Giacomini”, or visit the stunning cathedral which was built in the 14th century. Pope Urban IV ordered the construction of the cathedral to provide a beautiful, holy place for the Corporal of Bolsena.
The cathedral’s façade contains many of the elements of design that were common to religious construction from the 14th to the 20th century. The cathedral’s construction was begun in 1290 and lasted for almost 300 years. During the course of that time, the design evolved from Romanesque to Gothic. Inside the Church you’ll see, the frescoes represent many events in Christianity including the Apocalypse, the Last Judgment. They begin with the Preaching of the Antichrist and continue to the Doomsday and the Resurrection of the Flesh.
We will continue the trip further north into the Tuscany region to the town of Montepulciano, a hill town packed with interest and charm. You will have the pleasure of tasting the delightful wine of this region. During this visit, we will taste both red wine and you can see the vineyard and the olive trees!
After tasting, you will have some free time to see the little Shops, one of the most attractive hills towns in Tuscany. It is built on a ridge of Monte Poliziano in the province of Siena in Tuscany.
