Itinerary Description:

Begin in Venice, immediately transferring to Verona and the Hotel Le due Torri, which will serve as your home base as you embark on a delectable culinary adventure around the countryside. First, visit the nearby towns of Bassano del Grappa and Asiago, made famous for their Grappa and cheese, respectively. Take your time sampling their products at the Poli distillery, Grappa Museum, and the Pennar cheese factory.

Continue your tasting tour by sipping on some of the region's infamous Prosecco, either on your personal luxury gondola in Venice, or at the Valdo Winery Valdobbiadene known for its special Prosecco Conegliano Valdobbiadene sparkling white wine.

Now that you have experienced the romance of Italy, it is time to venture further north to the heart of the Dolomites, a spectacular mountain range world famous for its skiing and hiking slopes. Spend your time in Ortisei taking advantage of the Dolomites’ extensive system of slopes, as well as the Gardena Grödnerhof Gourmet & Spa Hotel's excellent cuisine and the various wonderful wellness treatments available at the spa. Winter sports enthusiasts will especially appreciate the quiet and central location of the hotel, which is only a short walk from the ski lifts, the Alpe di Siusi cableway, and the ultra-modern covered walkway to the Seceda gondola connected to the beautiful Val Gardena and Sella Ronda ski circuits. Conclude your holiday spending days at your leisure, participating in activities catered to your preference and skill level.
