Bergamo and Franciacorta

Bergamo and Franciacorta

#artcities #foodies

Hidden treasures one step away from Milan. Bergamo, a city of art enclosed by mighty Venetian walls, is nestled between hight mountains, a lush countryside and hills covered with vineyards. We taste the main product of the Bergamo mountains, the cheese, and then we move to Franciacorta, where the vineyards reach the blue waters of Lake Iseo. We visit Monte Isola, the largest lake island in Europe, on which side lush olive groves grow, and we finish with a great tasting of Franciacorta, probably the most famous traditional method in Italy.

Get inspired! This is a standard proposal.
Departure and return dates, duration of the trip, type of accommodation, experiences, transfers, meals and other services: the travel package will be created according to the desires and the needs of the Tour Operator and of the traveler.
