Escape Venice and discover the medieval city of Treviso! On this wine-and-food-fueled adventure, you’ll enjoy some local aperitivo, explore the Veneto countryside with its heartbreaking views and taste some of the region’s most interesting local wines.
What to Expect
You’ll meet your guide and driver at Piazzale Roma at the steps of Ponte della Costituzione (also known as Calatrava Bridge). From there you’ll start your trip to the fascinating town of Treviso, a medieval city just half an hour from Venice.
Once in Treviso, your guide will take you for a short walk in the city centre, which still retains most of its medieval architecture and charm. A pleasant walk through the canals and the fish market will lead us to the very heart of town, Piazza dei Signori, where you’ll visit a renowned osteria (traditional spot that serves wine and food) for a glass of Prosecco and a first delicious taste of local treats.
Then, you will meet your driver and head to the first family-owned winery — along the way, soak in the scenic views of the area, with its vineyards and historic villas and castles. There, see how Italian bubbles are made and, of course, you’ll have the chance to taste their amazing wines!
After the first winery visit, be taken to Conegliano, where another small winery awaits, ready to show you its breathtaking views and sublime wines. You’ll sip a sample while learning about Prosecco and Veneto history.
And if you haven’t fallen in love with the region yet, just wait until you arrive at your last stop, a true Italian gem! Five generations have run this family business where traditions and genuine care for the environment go hand-in-hand to create some amazing wines. During the drive back to Venice, your guide will provide you with local tips so you can get to know the area better and make the most of the rest of your holiday in Veneto!
