Join  JOE EURO, Founder of  the Wine Seller, & The Enthusiastic Traveler, FOR WINE, FOOD AND FUN IN PIEDMONTE and VENICE! May 14-23, 2017!

We arrive in Piedmonte on a relaxed and fun and un-structured tour with Joe Euro!  Always super to travel with, Joe knows how to truly enjoy Italy!

Spend 6 nights in Monferato exploring great wines and Grappa, cooking classes and truffle hunting, hazelnuts, chocolate, and cheese making deep in the unchartered countryside of the Piedmonte. Get to know Alba, Asti, Turin and Aquiterme!   Invest in full and fun days of kicking back with new friends.


After departing our beautiful digs in Piedmonte we head to Venice in our private transfer.  See how the city comes alive in the morning, with early morning walks, a photographer’s dreamscape.  Stroll the streets and get to know the unseen Venice, enjoy learning about the Jewish Ghetto, St. Marks Cathedral and the Doges Palace.  Skirt around in our own private boat and hear the secrets of the Venetians famous then, and the rich and famous who visit now.  Visit a Gondola Maker and see how this lost art was done years ago when Gondolas covered the waters.  Sleep on the Canal, and enjoy Venice like a Venitian!  With the best guides at your fingertips exploring the best that Venice offers, away from the crowds!


DEPART USA: Saturday May 13th, 2017.  One private transfer from Milan to Piedmonte is included.  Transfers to Venice airport are included after the tour.  The tour ends on the morning of May 23rd.
