2019

If you wish to discover a perfect blend of culture and taste, the Venezia-Verona
Amarone tour will be an extraordinary experience, mixing the unforgettable
monuments and squares of the historic centre of Verona, where the Romeo &
Juliet balcony has welcomed thousands of tourists ever since Shakespeare
wrote his famous play. The Amarone-Valpolicella tour offers the opportunity to
visit vineyards located in the northwest of Verona in the Classic Valpolicella area,
where sunny hills and small towns (called “borghi”) are the perfect setting for an
exclusive tasting menu. The special nature of the soil allows the presence of
indigenous grape varieties: Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso,
Amarone and Recioto, among the best red wines all over the world. The
particular method of production (semi-drying the grapes) – found nowhere else in
the world – is the reason why Amarone and Recioto are particularly preferred by
the wine lovers.
The wine tasting includes the visit to the famous winery Berlucchi, where a new
generation has inherited the pioneering spirit and qualities of the creator of
Franciacorta. Here they treasure the lessons from the past while working
towards a future generation of gorwing. Vineyards cover over 500 hectares on
this sweeping landscape, producing the great Franciacorta, a sparkling wine
made by metodo classico. With DOCG status produced from grapes grown
within the boundaries of the territory of Franciacorta , the Berlucchi family

traditions create fine products of incomparable character and quality. These
distinguishable wines will seduce with their history & flavors.
The tour will continue with a private short walking visit of Verona: the city of
lovers Romeo and Juliet. The numerous attractions of the historic centre will
immediately capture your heart in front of astonishing Piazza Bra – home of the
famous Arena di Verona with its magic performing arts – Castelvecchio bridge,
Juliet’s House, Piazza dei Signori and Piazza delle Erbe the beating lover’s heart
of this city, the Scaliger Tombs – the tombs of the Scaligera family – and the
Church of St Anastasia.
