It is an experience that will remain etched in your mind, an invitation to lose yourself in its natural beauty and rediscover the authenticity of small things. It is a journey through the genuine tastes of the typical products and excellent wines, enriched with attractions, ranging from the slowest poetic carousel in the world to thrilling ziplines and suspended bridges. It is a tour designed to bring travellers closer to the heart of this land and let themselves be overwhelmed by the soul and hospitality of a region that has so much to offer.
