Glamorous, beautiful and captivating destination

Venice is quite possibly the most romantic place in the world and the ultimate destination for food and wine lovers seeking to combine culture with their trip! With its colorful Gothic palaces and interconnecting bridges and canals, it is unlike any other city on earth. The surrounding Veneto region is also stunning with verdant vineyards, Palladian villas, Cistercian Abbeys, flower-covered mountain pastures, villa-lined rivers, castles, and historic villages. With your private driver and elegant Mercedes, you will visit some of Italy’s loveliest towns from Venice itself to Verona, Padua, and Vicenza, captivating villages like Bassano del Grappa and tiny wine country hamlets. Your tour begins in Venice, en route to Asolo, a medieval walled hamlet with a magical atmosphere. Your hotel is in a dreamy setting and also a celebrity magnet (celebrities and royalty from Orson Welles, Catherine Deneuve, and Peter O’ Toole to Prince Philip of Edinburgh have stayed here). Over the next few days, you will visit quaint little towns like Maròstica (home to a medieval human chess tournament), taste Grappa in its birthplace, go on a wine tour of Prosecco and visit the refined art city of Padua (where Giotto’s masterpiece Scrovigni Chapel is located).

The Ancient Roman town of Verona and western Veneto is next. You can look forward to wine tasting tours of the Valpolicella and Trento, a scenic boat tour of Lake Garda, and sightseeing in Vicenza, just to begin. Your charming hotel in Verona is a tiny palazzo furnished exquisitely with period furniture (think Persian carpets, silver candlesticks, antique chandeliers, and valuable china). You will discover Verona with your private art guide and visit the Roman Arena (which holds a amazing outdoor opera season each summer), among other famous sites such as Romeo and Juliet’s Balcony. Your last few days then will be based in Venice. Here you can take part in some great activities designed for you like a private cooking class and market tour with your chef and a sunset gondola ride, but you will also have plenty of free time to discover Venice by yourself. Find your own secret corners and piazzas in Venice, with our suggestions on excellent wine bars and restaurants. Your exclusive hotel is on its private island away from the chaotic tourist crowds, and you will have the hotel’s VIP boat at your service to nip over to Saint Mark’s in just a few minutes.

Food and wine are always a significant focus on our tours, and the wine estates you visit are superb, ranging from boutique and family-run to bigger prestigious cellars. Traditional dishes in the Veneto you might try on this tour include Fiori di Zucchini (zucchini flowers) stuffed with a creamy fish sauce and lightly battered, Risi e Bisi (delicious risotto made with fresh shelled peas and bacon), Zuppa di Cozze (mussels cooked in white wine, garlic, and parsley), and Radicchio Alla Griglia (grilled red endives, from Treviso). For dessert, you will likely taste freshly-made Tiramisù and some fabulous Italian cheeses such as Asiago and Montasio. Simply delicious. A mix of informal trattorias, up-market traditional venues, and luxurious Michelin starred eateries are all in-store. This tour in the Veneto is designed for food and wine lovers looking for luxury and La Dolce Vita. If this sounds like what you are looking for, contact us for more information.
