Wine Tours Italy
If you are interested in taking a trip to Italy, you might be wondering what sort of accommodations are available. Most of the best travel packages include accommodations in hotels. Some people prefer this because they are more familiar with the place and can therefore avoid any unfamiliar streets or unfamiliar faces. Others choose this arrangement because it is cheaper than staying in a hotel. One of the most popular tours of all time was organized by none other than the king of France, Louis XIV. He invited a group of his subjects to his palatial estate in Rodeo Drive, California. The result was an amazing five hundred years of history documented in a stunning exhibition called The Trip to Rodeo. In this account, you will hear the stories of the grandeur of the French court, as well as some advice on how you can take advantage of the wealth and privilege afforded you. Wine tours are one of the most popular tours in all of Europe.
Italy is known for its love of Italian wine and the number of wineries, it has to offer. If you are a lover of Italian wine, you will want to visit at least one of these winery tour groups during your time in Italy. Most wine tours start in Tuscany. The gorgeous country of Tuscany is home to lush vineyards and sits just above the scenic boot between the Ligurian Sea and the Sardinian Sea. Many of the world's most well-known wines come from this region. Among these are Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Muscat, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Vino Nobile Rosso. South of Tuscany, in the Val d'Elsa mountain, lies Campania. This is the world's most visited wine region. Wine lovers will be delighted in the range of white, red and even green varieties of wine. Wineries of this nature also have beautiful villas and chateaus that are situated right on their property. While here, no wine tour is complete without stopping at a farm market that sells local produce like onions, potatoes, tomatoes, eggs and cheeses. Taking a tour of Italy's Campania coastline is an experience in itself. At each location, you will see wooden houses built entirely on the beach. Many of these will have their own beach bar where you can enjoy your lunch or relax by the pool. Some of the wineries also have their own restaurants, with Mediterranean flavors that will tantalize your palate. A trip to the Apennies of Tuscany should not be left behind. There are scenic villages hidden away in the mountains, where only the finest wines are served. It is also possible to book a guided tour, one that includes accommodation and meals, as well as wine tasting. The Apennies of Tuscany is a fantastic place for a day out with friends or family, especially if you would like to explore the many art galleries and museums in Tuscany. A trip to Venice is also a must when considering taking wine tours of Italy. It is possible to rent self catering apartments or to stay in the traditional inns. While there, try some of the fabulous vino that Italy is so famous for producing. You can get this wine at the famous vineyards but also can enjoy it in the glasses of your own home. Italy is a diverse and wonderful country to visit, so a wine tour of Italy would certainly leave you satisfied. Rome is another favorite destination for those taking wine tours of Italy. This city has so much to offer. It would be impossible to describe it in a short article. However, we would start by describing the Trevi Fountain, one of the most visited attractions in Rome. Other great attractions include the Duomo, or The Temple of Wisdom. This ancient structure is fifty-eight feet high and a giant statue of the Virgin Mary sits on its pedestal. You can also see the underground tunnels that were built by the Roman Catholic Church during the time of Christ. These are some of the most fascinating parts of Rome and the Vatican City. It would truly be an experience of a lifetime. Florence is another great place to see and visit while touring Italy. The city was known as the home of Renaissance artists, and is today the home of some of the most famous painters in the world. Many of these painters came from Italy. If you are interested in seeing some of their work, Florence is a must see.
