Day 1 - May 25 - Venice: Welcome to Venice, Italy. The pre-tour of Emilia Romagna with Andrea King Travel. Upon arrival, your private transfer will greet you at the meeting point inside the Venice airport, and guide you to your private transfer to your hotel. Enjoy a welcome drink with the group in the early afternoon depending on your flight’s arrival time, and a quick overview of this 2-day adventure. We will explore the city together in the afternoon and call it an early night, so we are prepared for what is in store.

Day 2 - May 26 - Venice: Prosecco Tour. That’s right folks. We are going to jump right in with my favorite sparkling wine; Prosecco! Let’s travel through the countryside famous for its Prosecco production. This captivating area is home to precious vineyards, wine cellars and charming cathedrals. We will visit beautiful monuments as the Castle of Conegliano, the ancient Church of Santa Maria at Folina, the romantic Molinetto della Croda, at Refrontolo with the murmuring waterfalls. Enjoy wine tasting and lunch at a local restaurant. Explore this largely undiscovered region & its namesake wine.

Day 3/Day 1 of Main Tour - May 27 - Venice: Walking Tour: We will make the most of our stay here in Italy, and Venice is no exception. After breakfast, we will pack our bags and leave them at the front desk, so we can enjoy a last look at the city with a guide. Then we bid farewell to this amazing island, and head to the train station for our first Italian train adventure to Porretta Terme. End of Services for Pre-Tour.
