Your Itinerary

Lake Orta

It is telling that the Milanese call it La Cenerentola (Cinderella) because they have long considered it the secretly superior sibling to the larger, money-blighted lakes of Como and Maggiore. But, for me, what sets Orta apart is not its beauty – though the place is absurdly pretty – but the lake's mysterious, ethereal, almost supernatural quality. There is something for the soul there as well as for the eye. Set off to the Lake Orta region for a full day food and wine experience with a personal driver and tour guide. In the morning meet your professional English speaking driver and guide in Milan at disposal for a full day. You will then be escorted to the Lake Orta Region for a food and wine experience. After the visit you will continue to Orta Lake, a small alpine lake with breathtaking landscapes.

Admission Included

San Giulio Island

Orta San Giulio is built on the slopes of a steep hill (the Sacro Monte) that forms a peninsula jutting out into the lake. By day it looks longingly toward the beautiful island. By night, the gaze becomes even more amorous when the island is lit up and appears to float on dark water glistening with reflections.

Admission Not Included


Visit a winery to learn the methods of vineyard cultivation, winemaking and aging techniques. This visit will last about 30 minutes, after that you will enjoy a great appetizer with the wine tasting of Nebbiolo Rosato or Millesimato Superiore DOCG Prosecco with fresh cheese whipped with herbs. A glass of Vespolina DOC and a glass of Nebbiolo DOC (2011 vintage: Bronze at the International Competition in 2014 IWSC Hong Kong, Silver at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2015 in Hong Kong and the World Gold Value Challenge 2015 in Chicago - USA) Wine will be served with local and traditional food like salami, cheese, snacks and honey. Finish your tasting with coffee and grappa.
