THE PALLADIAN FINE ART OF WINE AND LIQUEURS.
Duration: 8 hours
Price: from € 130.00 (per person)
The modern flavour of wines and spirits find their traditional roots in the Higher Lands of Beauty. Our itinerary starts in Vicenza at Palazzo Valmarana Braga, in the elegant court of a noble masterpiece of the great Palladian Architecture. Inside the palace, the vault masterfully frescoed by Zelotti, tells the stories of an ancient world.
The tour continues with the discovery of two great villas of Palladio: Villa Caldogno, where its magnificent frescoes narrate the lavish banquets and entertainment of that time and Villa Godi Malinverni in Lugo where the first acknowledgement to Palladio's career took place.
A tasty lunch with traditonal dishes will be accompanied with local wines of Breganze DOC Area.
The second part of the journey will lead you to the city of Marostica, surrounded by its massive castle walls, with its world famous “Piazza degli Scacchi” where, every two years, the middle age era comes magically back to life along the narrow streets of the city.
Finally, you will arrive at the majestic Villa Angarano for a wine tasting session and Bassano del Grappa to visit its medieval town squares and its legendary “Alpini Bridge”, where the typical “mezzo e mezzo” cocktail is served.
