- Transfer to a villa hotel in the agricultural region north of Venice.
- Roll up your sleeves for a class with a Michelin-starred chef.
This morning it’s time to bid Venice farewell… we’re off to the foothills of the Alps to the region where prosecco is produced, time moves a little slower, and everywhere you look is another beautiful vista.
We’ll stop on the way for lunch at a country trattoria, and then check in at our regal villa hotel with an onsite restaurant run by a Michelin starred chef. Less than an hour and a half from Venice, Hotel Villa Abazzia feels worlds away. It’s time to relax and you’ll love the quirky, country elegant furnishings at this palatial hotel. Have a soak in the outdoor jacuzzi, or contact Onward to arrange a massage during your free time here.
Half of our group will have a very special hands on cooking class with the chef this afternoon. The other will set out to explore the “prosecco road,” a string of wineries where the delicious fizzy white wine is made. We’ll visit two wineries today to see how prosecco is produced, meet the makers, and of course enjoy some bubbly!
This evening you’re on your own to relax and explore Follina, the historic hamlet where we’ll spend the next two nights. There are a number of nice little local restaurants here for you to enjoy, or make a reservation at the hotel’s Michelin-starred eatery, La Corte.
