This tour may only be available as a PRIVATE TOUR for 6 or 7 adults booking and travelling together in 2017.  If you are interested, please contact Ciao Bella Tours to discuss possible dates for your private tour with us.
From dinner at a family-owned trattoria without a menu to a starred restaurant this 12-day experience is especially designed for lovers of good wine and food and who would like to focus on the rich northern Regions.  Truffles, the famous Barolo, gourmet dinners, slow dinners, visits to a vineyard to taste their wines and meet the winemakers, combined with day and half day trips to particular places of interest.

This tour is all inclusive from the moment we meet in Venezia to the time we depart from Torino 12 days  later.  No need to spend an additional Euro!

Selections of the Italian northern regions of Il Veneto, Lombardia, and Piemonte on this 12 day tour will provide a relaxing interesting holiday visiting some of the less touristy parts of Italy, yet towns and cities rich in history, art and culture.

In addition to Venice amongst the places we enjoy are  stylish Padova/Padua with a uninverstiy dating from 1222 - the famous anatomical theatre and Galileo's lectern, Giotto's work, special cafes; amazing Vicenza - the pearl of the Renaissance, extensive works of Palladio, aperitivi on top of the Basillica Palladiana, trattoria magnificient; Bassano del Grappa - real grappa!; historic, medieval beautiful and tiny Sirmione with its well maintained and interesting castle, and Lake Garda  for a boat trip on the largest lake in Italy; Mantova / Mantua - established in 2000BC and now the Italian Capital of Culture in 2016; Romantic Verona;  musical Cremona; and magnificent Torino/Turin - arcades, Gianduiotto chocolate, Mole Antonelliana, Royal residences.  

If you haven't tried Barola wine (or certainly even if you have) you'll have a great opportunity to do so on tour, and also Barbera, Dolcetto, Barbaresco and Friesa all famous Piemontese wines.  And of course we'll do a truffle hunt with a local triufulaio  ( you can see a little of our hunt a few years ago on You Tube at )
