This tour begins in the wonderfully romantic small city of Verona, home to opera, the historic Scaligeri family and of course the legend of Romeo and Juliet.
The picturesque wine growing area of Collio is our first base in Friuli and we’ll be exploring both the ancient Roman origins of the area as well as the world famous wineries located in the surrounding hills.
From Collio we move on to the enchanting literary city of Trieste, on the coast bordering Slovenia and Croatia.
We finish our tour in Venice, where we explore some of the lesser known sights such as the island of Burano and the Venetian Lagoon as well as meandering through the city that people affectionately term La Serenissima.
We’ll be staying in just four hotels over the 15 days to ensure we minimise the time spent packing and moving. Our bases for the tour are Verona (3 nights), the Collio region (3 nights), Trieste (3 nights) and Venezia (3 nights).
There are 5 lunches and 5 dinners included in the tour in restaurants chosen for their high-quality food and wine that is typical of the area we’re visiting. And we are always on hand to enjoy a meal together on other occasions.
