Our “Wines of Italy” package holiday from Australia is an unforgettable trip for wine connoisseurs and features stops in Venice and Florence, with day trips to the Prosecco Hills, the Chianti region and the hidden vineyards of the Venetian Lagoon. Highlights of this Italy wine holiday include the magnificent natural scenery that can only be found in the Tuscan countryside, featuring rolling hills and vibrant vineyards, and Prosecco tasting on an authentic wine estate in Valdobbiadene – the small town that is widely considered the capital of the Prosecco Hills. With pre-arranged tours, accommodation and private transfers, this is the perfect Italy wine holiday on which to relax and immerse yourself in the famous Italian wine culture.
Venice: The magical city of Venice can be found delicately floating in the beautiful region of Veneto, which is home to the famous Glera grape vineyards that are used to create the popular Italian Prosecco sparkling wine. In this region, Valdobbiadene is considered the capital of the Prosecco Hills and is a wonderfully quaint and charming town to visit on a day trip from Venice, where you can discover the secrets of Italian wine-making and Prosecco. In Valdobbiadene, you can see traditional wineries and sample different styles of Prosecco – with our complete holiday planning service, we can pre-arrange a guided excursion to Valdobbiadene from Venice, with Prosecco tasting and an optional lunch of local delicacies. From Venice, you can also discover the hidden vineyards of the Venetian Lagoon, which can be reached by boat from the Floating City. We recommend stopping at Sant’Erasmo, Mazzorbo and Burano, which all feature flourishing grape vines to enjoy.
Florence: After enjoying the delights of Veneto, we will whisk you via high-speed train to the Renaissance city of Florence, which is immersed in the Tuscan culture and close to the famous Chianti wine region. We recommend pre-arranging a Chianti wine-tasting tour from Florence, where you can admire rolling hills, decadent vineyards and picturesque country scenes, as well as wine tasting of course! From Florence, you can also discover Tuscany’s other treasures, such as Pisa’s famous Leaning Tower and the quaint city of Lucca, which is encapsulated by enchanting city walls where you can enjoy a relaxing bike ride around the city. As a part of our personalised service, we can include optional extras as a part of your Venice and Florence package holiday from Australia, such as guided tours of Florence, a cooking class, hop-on/hop-off bus tour tickets, wine tours and much more!
