Places to Stay


Reasons to Visit

Olive Oil Museum (Torgiano)

The museum is located in a small nucleus of medieval houses within the Torgiano town walls. The museum covers ten rooms and opens with information provided by the National Research Council on the botanic characteristics of olive trees, and the traditional and avant-garde techniques for cultivating and extracting the oil.

Parmesan Factory (Modena)

Modena is one of the few official areas sanctioned to produce authentic Parmesan cheese. Enjoy an introduction to one of Italy’s most well-known cheeses with a visit to a Parmesan factory. See how the process takes place using milk specifically from pedigreed red Reggiana cows.

Vineyard

A visit to a Chianti vineyard offers a full immersion in the wine's wold. You'll begin in the vineyards and receive an explanation of the terroir- the combination of local climate, soils and grape varietals that are the components that make wines so unique from region to region. You can taste best Tuscan wines if you wish.

What you say

The guided tour was very good. The lady was very friendly and flexible. She did not talk too much and she tried to entertain the students.
