Imagine walking down the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France and staring out into the vivid blue Côte d'Azur… or strolling through the ancient streets of the towns of Lake Como and studying the art and architecture in the fabulous city of Florence, Italy, all while enjoying the best food and wine that these cities have to offer. 

Our 2nd Annual Travel with Via Romano will have you doing just this!

October 17 - 30, 2020

We will start our trip off with a limousine transport from our tasting room to the airport…with Prosecco! We fly over the pond and land in Nice, France.  Our ocean view suites on the Promenade des Anglais will be our resting place while we discover the Provence region of France.  Our first full day will include a day trip to the Cote de Provence where we will wine taste at 3 – 4 wineries and have a typical French lunch with amazing wines in the center city of Aix en Provence. While in Nice we will go on a dinner walking tour through the city center and eat our way through Provençal cuisine. You will be able to enjoy a full day and two half days in Nice exploring on your own or we can book other excursions for you. 

We will then travel to the Piemonte region for a day in Barolo! This area will be in the midst of harvest and we will savor every moment.  Nebbiolo, truffles, porcinis and hazelnuts will delight our palettes. After leaving the town that Jon & Leanne honeymooned in, we will head to Lake Como to stay in a luxury villa on the lake.  Our stay on the lake will include a boat food tour to 4 cities and a lesson in the art of the Aperitivo with dinner Al Fresca while the sun sets. You will have a full day and two half days to visit any city on the lake with the ferry pass that is included and meander through the shops and restaurants…who knows what you might find!

On to Florence, Italy, known for the Statue of David, the magnificent Duomo, and some of the best pizza in all of Italy! We will be staying in the historic city center and steps away from the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio and Giardino di Boboli. A day trip to the Cinque Terre will enrich your soul as we wine taste at two wineries and have lunch in a picturesque coastal town. The trip would not be complete without a walking dinner tour through the Oltrarno area of Florence where we’ll take you along the perfect route for you to experience the neighborhood’s easygoing charm and introduce you to families that have been serving up foodie treasures there for generations. You will also have a full day and two half days to see the treasures that you have never seen before or we can book one of several side trips listed below!
