This exceptional day-trip gives you the opportunity of a visit to a magnificent city such as Bergamo, and at the same time to discover one of the most important area for the production of Prosecco wine in Italy.
Bergamo is a very special city: his oldest part (città alta-upper town) has been grounded on the top of a hill, completely surrounded by the ancient walls, from where you have a spectacular view over the Po-plane. There is also downhill the second part of the city (città bassa-lower town), where the important economical heart of the city is pulsating.
During your visit you are going to concentrate your attention on the upper town, feeling the experiance of living in a middle-aged city with outstanding buildings and magnificent squares.
In the early afternoon, after the free time for lunch, you are going to moove to a wine region called Franciacorta, very famous in Italy and all over Europe for the production of Spumante Wine.
In Franciacorta you will visit two different wineries: a big one, where you can have a look at the different steps of the production of wines and a smaller one ruled by a family where you are going to feel also the love for the tradition and the territory.
In both the wineries you will have the opportunity to taste the different wines produced, having a walk into the vineyards and have a chat with local sommelier...
