We’ll take you among the vineyards of Valpolicella and Bardolino wine region, Lake Garda and Verona for a mix of culture, traditions and Christmas customs.
This wine holiday includes a two-nights stay in agriturismo and two full day wine tours in Valpolicella Classica and Lake Garda.
We pick you up and we head to the historical centre of Verona, here you’ll have some spare time to enjoy the traditional Christmas atmosphere that pervades the city and a dinner in a local restaurant.
After dinner you’re going at the accommodation for the night.

We get back to serious stuff: the morning starts with a visit to a winery in Valpolicella, then we move to Lake Garda for the lunch and the second winery in the Bardolino wine region. Here you’ll have the chance to have a walk on the shore of the biggest italian lake and “breath” the traditions of italian villages in Christmas time.
