Tour program

Day 1 

Arrival at Milan Bergamo airport and transfer to the hotel.

Check in and overnight stay.

Day 2

Breakfast at the hotel.

Guided visit of Bergamo upper town. Bergamo is made of two districts, the Città Alta (Upper Town), built up on the hills, which is the "city" by definition, and the Città Bassa (Lower Town), which is a lively financial, industrial and administrative centre of national importance. The two parts are separated, both physically and symbolically, by the powerful Venetian Walls, which were built by the Serenissima Republic of Venice in the second half of the 16th century to defend the city, which was the farthermost centre on the Mainland, close to the border with Milan´s territory.

Free time for lunch.

Afternoon visit to two of the most important wineries of Franciacorta to learn all about the wine production, from the vineyards to the glass. Visits will be followed by a guided wine tasting.

Transfer to Clusane for a walk in town before dinner in a local restaurant.

Dinner in a local restaurant with wine served during the meal.

Return to the hotel and overnight stay.

Day 3

Breakfast at the hotel.

Transfer to Sulzano for a boat trip on Lake Iseo. Today we visit Monteisola, the largest lake island not only in Italy, but also in South and Central Europe. Stroll through the charming village of Peschieria and walk up to the shrine of Madonna della Ceriola for a breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding landscape.

Transfer back to Sulzano with free time for lunch.

Afternoon at the Franciacorta Wine Festival, where you are invited to visit the historic Palazzo Monti della Corte, located in Nigoline di Corte Franca, one of the most striking aristocratic manor houses in Franciacorta: the lawns of its centuries-old grounds and ancient orchard will be the venue for a great open-air party with Street Food made with typical Franciacorta ingredients.
A tasting bar will be set up, where over 60 local wineries will offer tastings of various types of Franciacorta: a unique occasion for everyone to acquaint themselves with the producers and sample their wines, under their expert supervision. The street food, delicious and easy to munch on, will be created by the chefs of the most famous restaurants in Franciacorta, who will devote their talents to the creative promotion of local specialties, resulting in one-of-a-kind Street Food delicacies.
Among them there will be a star chef coming from another region. There will also be areas reserved for barbeque and food trucks. All the guests will be given a cloth to lay on the lawn and relax on during this refined picnic. After 6 p.m., the mood changes, with a cocktail aperitif and the final fling: a DJ set dedicated to Franciacorta, with a single, long tasting counter featuring
Franciacorta wines, which will accompany an aperitif exalting the classic local products and barbeque.
