This trip begins in Milan where we will stay in the center of this ancient yet cosmopolitan city. The cuisine and style found in Milan is often imitated but not often achieved! Great city to start our adventure.
Next up is Bologna where we will learn about the old towers of Bologna, the fables of Neptune, and see what's left of the old canals that once adorned this city, as well as other historical facts of this wonderful and vibrant city. Often mentioned as the city with the finest food in all the world! My personal favorite city!
We then head to the famous coastal area called Cinque Terre. Here we will stay by the sea in the mgnificent village of Monterosso al Mare, the largest of the ancient villages that dot the rugged Italian Riviera coastline.
Now on to the world class wine region of Piemonte. We will spend 4 days exploring wineries and towns throughout Piedmont Wine Country. We will visit the towns of Alba, Barolo, Barbaresco and tour wineries of both large and small producers.
Our final stop on this trip is Lake Como, where we will stay in the hills above Bellagio enjoying stunning views over the lake and The Swiss Alps off in the distance. Stroll the cobblestone streets and back alleys of Bellagio and take the ferry to neighboring lakeside towns.
