Based in the picturesque city of Treviso, this tour gives you the opportunity to have a taste of the unique Venetian culture whilst enjoying a fantastic introduction to the Prosecco wines and its quaint countryside. Once settled in at the 4* Relais de Monaco, the remainder of the afternoon and evening will be free for you to relax, enjoy the hotel’s excellent facilities or explore your pleasant surroundings. In the evening, we would be pleased to recommend a nearby restaurant and reserve you a table for dinner if required.
On day two, your English-speaking driver/guide will meet you at your hotel for a full day transported and guided tour of the Prosecco wine region. You will be taken to three small authentic wineries, to enjoy three different types of experiences. One will be focused on the technical aspect of the Prosecco making process and will be followed by tastings of two glasses of Prosecco. Another one will be focused on the emotional aspect, with explanations of the differences between the Prosecco wines in terms of grape varieties and flavours. You will also have the amazing opportunity to take part in a blind tasting! The third visit will be take place in a traditional Cantina based in the heart of the characteristic Prosecco hills and will of course also be followed by the obligatory tasting session. Your guide will take you to a local “casera”, a small cabin perched in the Prosecco vineyards, where you will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch with stunning views.You will also stop at a truly unique location, a “hostelry without a host” on top of a hill which offers amazing views across the vineyards. Here, the owner is rarely seen. Instead, in this cute hut, you will be able to help yourself to bread and salami, putting your money in the tin. There is also a Prosecco vending machine if you are thirsty! Please note that if you are travelling on the four day break, we will arrange for you to stop there on day three for logistical reasons.
After such an enlightening day, a three course traditional Venetian dinner will be served in the hotel’s elegant restaurant. Please note that drinks have not been included as part of the package and can be ordered and paid for locally on the evening.
If you choose to stay for a fourth night and book our four day package, your chauffeur will meet you at the hotel after breakfast on the morning of day three, and you will be taken to Valdobbiadene for a tour and tastings in a premium winery. After your tour, you will be taken to renowned local restaurant for a delicious three course lunch including drinks. The restaurant is nestled at the heart of the Prosecco vineyards and offer breath-taking views on the surroundings.

My friends and I had such a relaxing weekend at Relais de Monaco. Sipping Prosecco by the pool and being pampered in the spa... Perfetto!
