Time is flying and we are ready for our first weekend trip of the semester on 12 - 13 - 14 October.
We planned a chilled and fancy trip to one of Italy’s best-loved and world known regions : Tuscany.
It combines a beautiful countryside reminiscent of the landscapes of Renaissance masterpieces, a rich artistic heritage including exquisite art and architecture, a glorious history, excellent wines and delicious food.
We organized a rich and UNIQUE program because we want you to appreciate all the possible and characteristic aspects of this region. We'll visit the beautiful cities of SIENA, PISA and FIRENZE;
But the protagonist of our trip is the visit to "Cantine del Castello di Verazzano", one of the most famous winery in the CHIANTI hills where we will learn more about the successive stages of the fermentation and aging of a wine, we'll visit the cellars where the most famous Tuscan wine is produced and we'll taste different types of wines
