Day 2 – Brescia – Rodengo Saiano – Wine Tasting
In the morning we’ll reach Brescia. Brescia is an “off the beaten path” city; known as a city for culture lovers for the quality of its architecture, museums and exhibitions, it’s a perfect town for strolling. We’ll visit Santa Giulia Museum, one of the most important archaeological museums in Italy, a World Heritage Site, housed in the 8th century monastery of Santa Giulia founded by the Lombard King Desiderio. Very close to the City Museum is the Capitoline Temple, some of the best Roman remains in Northern Italy, constructed by the Emperor Vespasian in 73 AD. Alongside are the remains of the Roman Theatre, thought to have held 15,000 spectators in its heyday.
In the afternoon we’ll get to Rodengo Saiano in Franciacorta for a visit to the Abbey of the town. The Abbey of San Nicola is one of the most impressive monastic sites in Italy. Founded in the 11th century by Cluniac monks, it passed into the hands of the Olivetans in the mid-15th century until its suppression in the Napoleonic period (1797).The Abbey is built around three large cloisters (the oldest one is from the 15th century with decorated glazed tiles). In the refectory room we will also admire the works of the famous painter Romanino from Brescia.
And later in the afternoon, what’s better than a visit to a renowned Franciacorta Cellar, tasting the full range of Franciacorta wines to make the day perfect?
Day 3 – Milan / Mantua
Choose the city you want to visit and we’ll arrange everything!
Milan is the Fashion Capital of Italy, so it shouldn’t be surprising that there is some great shopping to be done in this city! We will stroll down the streets of the Quadrilatero D’oro, admiring the shop windows of Prada, Armani, Versace, Ferragamo, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino.
A must-see is the Duomo of Milan, one of the biggest churches in the world, sitting on the grand Piazza del Duomo beside the immense and beautiful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. You can also visit Pinacoteca Brera, “Brera Art Gallery”, the main public gallery for italian paintings in Milan. And finally, taste a gorgeous Cappuccino at Pasticceria Cova, as people from Milan often do!
Mantua is a jewel of the Renaissance Age, with its Palazzo Ducale (Duke’s Palace), the magnificent palace where the Gonzaga family used to live. You’ll be admiring immense frescoed halls, wonderful art galleries, surprising gardens and courtyards along with undisputed masterpieces in art history. Furthermore, you can visit Palazzo Te, one of the most representative examples of Mannerism. Its multi-faceted style and the pomposity of its decorations have been impressing guests and visitors for almost five centuries.
