Weekend “Taste and Walk”

Descrizione

DAY 1 – NORDIC WALKING EX ASTINO MONASTERY – BERGAMO UPPER TOWN

Welcome to East Lombardy! Today you will get to know Bergamo and its green hills. From the Upper Town we will walk together with our Nordic Walking guide to the wonderful Ex Astino Monastery, in the valley at the foot of the Upper Town’s hills, a peaceful and silent place where the Vallombrosan monks lived more than a thousand years ago. The route is simple and pleasant and on our arrival there will be a degustation of local products. After the pleasant and regenerating stop we will return to the Upper Town where a pleasant walk takes you through the streets of the magical medieval citadel.

Return to Franciacorta. Dinner at an agritourism and overnight stay

 

DAY 2 – NORDIC WALKING MONTISOLA – WINE TASTING

The day is dedicated to this wonderful corner of Lombardy, Lake Iseo with its jewel Montisola and the green and sweet Franciacorta!

Departure for Iseo where we will embark for Montisola, the largest lake island in Europe. You will be magically impressed by its beauty and timelessness, with its alleyways, a total absence of cars, its typical boats, the naet and above all you will be ecstatic with the breathtaking views that we will enjoy as we gradually walk to the highest point of the island, to the Madonna della Ceriola Sanctuary at an altitude of 600m. A quiet walk that allows you to savour the tranquillity and silence of nature.

Lunch will provide the opportunity to enjoy the island’s flavours, the typical dried lake sardines, delicious Slow Food and delectable Montisola salami, made using techniques from the past.

On the way back to the mainland, a wine tasting at one of Franciacorta’s wineries awaits us. Here we will taste their famous bubbles, the only wine that can compete for complexity and goodness with French champagne!

Return to the hotel. Dinner and overnight stay

 

DAY 3 – NORDIC WALKING MINCIO PARK – DEGUSTATION OF THE TERRITORY’S FLAVOURS

From Lake Iseo to Lake Garda! Another one of Lombardy’s incredible jewels! Today we will go for a pleasant walk through Mincio Park, through small villages where time seems to be standing still, surrounded by a sweet and relaxing natural landscape. We will cross three provinces: Brescia, Mantua and Verona! Stopping in a typical agritourism to enjoy the territory’s products is a must!

In the afternoon there will be a degustation of Lugana wine which is produced in the territory and dinner at an agritourism, sipping a glass of wine while watching the sunset.

Overnight stay at Lake Garda.
