Have you ever considered going on a wine tasting vacation? If so, then Tauck Tours to Italy really offers all you are looking for. Whether you book on an organized wine tasting adventure, or whether you decide to taste wines in every stop is your own decision. The beauty is, however, that you can enjoy true relaxation and comfort, while sipping from some of the world’s best wines at the same time. However, you do need to know how to get the most out of your vacation. The tips below are designed to help you with that.
Get Your Itinerary Right
First of all, you need to make sure that your itinerary is right. Tour operators know that you have certain wishes and that you want to know they will be fulfilled before you book. Hence, ‘surprise’ trips are not overly popular. Make sure you know where you are going, how long you will be in the different locations and which vineyards or wineries are there for you to try.
A Unique Day, Every Day
Now that you know where you will be each day, you have to check out what you’re doing. What you will find is that you will be in different locations each day, and that each of those locations offers some amazing things to do. You don’t have to visit a vineyard if you don’t want to. Italy is filled with other beautiful sights as well, including natural parks, architecture, museums, shops and more. You need to make sure that every day of your vacation will be unique.
Canal Bianco and Po
It is likely that your cruise will travel on the Canal Bianco and/or the River Po. This is because these are the places where most of the historical vineyards can be found because the grounds around these rivers are so fertile. Take some time to research the area, however, because you simply cannot see everything there is in just one vacation.
Get to Know Your Cruise Boat
Finally, you need to know what you can expect from your cruise boat. A tour operator should tell you more than what type of boat it is. You need to know what to expect from your cabin, for starters, but also what there is on board in terms of food and entertainment. If you truly are interested in a wine tasting adventure, you should look into the types of wines are served on board. One of the great things about river cruises is that the cuisine and drinks is usually adjusted to match the region that you are traveling in. Hence, it is likely that you will be served many traditional Italian dishes, and that these are accompanied with some delicious local wines. You may even have a true sommelier on board who will be able to tell you all about what you are drinking, where it came from and more.
The most important thing, however, is that you enjoy yourself, which should not be a problem.
