Tours and visits - 2 Days 1 Night


CASTLES AND TASTE

Day 1: Arrival in Modena/Bologna by train or with your own means of transport in the early morning. Meeting with your driver who will accompany you on a day journey through the hills of Modena to discover the history and traditions of these places.
During the tour you will visit a prestigious Vinegar Cellar, where you will learn about the delicate process that leads to the birth of the famous DOP (Protected Denomination of Origin) Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, moving from the cooking of the must to its slow aging in wooden barrels to obtain the precious "black gold" in full compliance with the ancient methods and practices. Take a plunge into the Middle Ages by visiting the majestic fortress of Rocca dei Contrari in Vignola, built out of limestone, looming up over the river (visit with audio guide), and the romantic village of Castelvetro, with a stunning panoramic view of the Modena countryside. Traditional lunch at a farm restaurant (optional) and a visit to a Winery with tastings of the famous Lambrusco and other local wines.
In the afternoon a guided visit to the Castle of Levizzano, an ancient medieval fortress, which was then transformed into a manor-house, then arrival at the Selezione Modena Hub in Vaciglio, where there is a complete showcase of the “traditional flavours” and typical local foods and wines. Dinner at your leisure and stay overnight in the hotel.
Day 2: Breakfast at the hotel; walking tour with an Italian/English tour guide through the historical centre of Modena, which has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Piazza Grande (the Great Square) with its splendid Romanesque cathedral, the Ghirlandina Tower, the Town Hall, the Clock Tower and the Estense Lapidary Museum (visits with an audio guide). The tour, upon request, also includes the visit to Palazzo Ducale, which is now home to the prestigious Military Academy of Modena.
