Monte Isola and Franciacorta with Susanna Allegri
A guide at the wheel
A few steps in Franciacorta among the vineyards, and to Monte Isola where the road is completely flat: a fun way to get to know it while riding.
Between the Franciacorta wine cellars on a comfortable minibus with a guide at the wheel we will also reach Montisola, getting to know it on foot, or in a more fun way, by bike. Excellent food either at gourmet or more simple but refined in local trattorias or converted farmhouses or directly proposed by the wineries themselves that associate their wines with dishes designed to match. You can come here all year round. In spring, when nature comes back to life. In summer with the bunches of grapes ripening in the sun and that are ready for the harvest. In autumn when the leaves change colour, transforming the vines into palettes of many colours, and in winter when the colour is the white of the snow on the surrounding mountain tops and the air is fresh and crisp.
We will pass through ancient villages, wineries, castles, and cellars, tasting the famous bubbles and products of Franciacorta. We will visit a wine cellar and enter a few shops selling typical products at km-0.
We will board the boat and reach Monte Isola, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Europe's largest inhabited lake island, where 2016 the famous artist Christo succeeded in creating his work "Floating Piers" of which we will see images. We will stop to eat something or drink a coffee from a beautiful terrace with panoramic views. We will take the boat again and once disembarked we will finish the full day tour by bus.
