Guide

It is typical country cooking and makes great use of garden vegetables, herbs, wild berries, wild mushrooms, asparagus, game and cheeses. Breakfast consists of a good selection of cereals, fruit, homemade cakes, cheese and cold meats, along with tea and coffee. Please note that breakfast is usually available between 8.00 a.m and 9.00 a.m. Packed lunches are normally provided for the walks, and usually consist of a sandwich with a snack. During the week there will be opportunities to try some of the best local restaurants, which offer authentic cuisine and delicious homemade dishes such as spiedo (spit-roasted meat), wild mushroom risotto, gnocchi, cured meats and cheeses, all washed down with quality prosecco.

Itinerary of your trip Walking The Prosecco Hills

  • Day 1 Day 1: Start Pieve Di Soligo (Dinner)
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Day 1: Start Pieve Di Soligo (Dinner)

      The trip starts in Pieve di Soligo, a small village in the heart of the Prosecco Hills, approximately 37mi (60km) north of Venice. The area is picturesque, with lush vineyards covering the slopes of every possible hill, and old churches, abbeys, villas and ancient castles dotting the landscape. Prosecco has been produced here for centuries, but only more recently, thanks to the surge in its popularity worldwide, has the area captured a deserved spotlight. Nevertheless, relatively few tourists visit this wine region each year, making it an ideal location for a week of walking, wine tasting and cultural discovery. Depending on the group arrival time, there might be some time for a quick orientation walk near our hotel.

      Day 2: Morning Walk Around The Medieval Villages Of Cison Di Valmarino And Follina; Visit A Beautiful Cistercians Abbey Dating To The 12Th Century (Breakfast,Lunch)

      This morning we transfer to the pretty town of Cison di Valmarino, one of the best-preserved villages in the Prosecco area, containing historic monuments and buildings that reveal its past role as a major feudal estate. The gentle walk follows a waterway, crossing tranquil woodlands, and passing by the ancient manor and fortress of Castelbrando, which offers panoramic views over the farmland and villages far below. The walk ends in Follina, best-known for the Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria, a mystical site enclosing one of most beautiful cloisters in Italy. The monks were the first to give a boost to the development of the textile sector in this area, weaving wool here from the Middle Ages onwards. In the afternoon we return to the hotel and the remainder of the day is free to relax in the village or you may decide to take an optional short walk along the picturesque river banks near our hotel. In the evening, you will experience the first wine-tasting of the week at a local restaurant: a glass of Prosecco, followed by two local wines and some nibbles will complement the experience. Ascent: 971ft (296m); descent: 853ft (260m)

      Day 3: Circular Walk In The Heartland Of The Prosecco Region; Visit One Of The Best Local Producers For Wine Tasting And Learn About The Wine-Making Process (Breakfast,Lunch)

      Today's walk takes us to the heartland of the Prosecco Hills, namely Valdobbiadene, San Pietro di Barbozza and San Stefano. The majority of the winemakers are based right here, among the steep terraced hills, which are arguably the prettiest in the Veneto region. Our walk follows a mix of human-made tracks and paths twisting through the vineyards, and offers spectacular views of the fertile landscape and hillside hamlets. During the walk we will have the opportunity to visit the Pietrovecchio winery, one of the top local prosecco producers. After a general introduction to the winery and its history, we can sample different varieties of prosecco during a guided wine-tasting (included). We return to the hotel in the afternoon.
