DAY TOUR: HIKING AND WINE TASTING IN MONTEFALCO

 

 

 

This Tour is a perfect combination of nature and taste, what the region Umbria can offer at its best! The walking tour starts from a winery near Montefalco, in Umbria, in an extraordinary area surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. The winery produces the two main excellences of the territory: wine and extra virgin olive oil, products of high and unique quality, thanks to the land and plants which take advantage from a particular good climate. Escorted by an environmental guide, you will discover Montefalco, its historic centre and the surrounding area: the walking tour is about 7,5 km (4,6 miles) long and is suitable for all, even for families with children (over 6 years). You will walk quietly, enjoying the scent of the countryside, admiring colours and lights, tasting the authentic flavours of this land. After this beautiful walking tour in the nature, you go back to the starting point. At the winery, you will have a wine tasting with typical local products or a typical Umbrian lunch. Don't miss this exciting experience for the whole family!
