During this wine tour, you will have plenty of opportunity to taste these surprising Umbrian wines, enjoy the lovely Umbrian medieval towns and spectacular sceneries.

But it is not only wine this tour offers, because you will have also the opportunity to taste the excellent local food and Extra vergine olive oil. Then you leave the green valley and go to Trasimeno Lake, another well-known wine area. You will visit a winery and will have a fish-dinner in a local restaurant.
