A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

We are a family of 5, with 3 teenagers and this was the highlight of our 14 day trip to Italy! It pack a lot into one day, but it did not feel draining. Our guide, Antonia, was great. The bus was comfortable. Each of the stops were interesting and unique - just enough time in each place. We would recommend this to anybody.

Even though it was a long day, we enjoyed every minute. The countryside is beautiful and spending time in the three cities was wonderful. Coming from a dairy state I thought the farm wouldn't be special. It was, However, very special with a delicious lunch.
