What You'll Do
  • Visit the vineyards and winery at the beautiful Praglia Abbey
  • Enjoy a guided wine tasting with your private sommelier
  • Stop for lunch at a charming local trattoria
This day trip takes wine lovers from Venice to the Abbey of Praglia in the Euganean Hills. Visit the abbey and its winery and taste fine wines with your private sommelier guide. Enjoy lunch and stop to see a historic Venetian villa and gardens as well.
What to Expect
Spend a day in the Veneto countryside at a centuries-old abbey learning about local wine production and tasting the wine produced there. Enjoy a typical lunch and stop to visit a historical villa and gardens before returning to Venice.

You’ll be picked up in the morning and head to the nearby Euganean Hills on this full-day excursion, enjoying views of the scenic countryside en route.   

Monks have been making wine at the Abbey of Praglia for at least 1,000 years. Visit the vineyards and cellars where you’ll learn about the growing and production methods.  

Enjoy tastes of their painstakingly produced wines, including well-structured whites, robust reds, Champagne-method sparkling wines, and dessert wines. Your guide for the day, a certified Italian sommelier, will use this wine tasting session to introduce you to the the grapes and wines of the area.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the Abbey’s beautiful cloisters, refectory, and church.

Next on the itinerary is lunch at a typical trattoria, where you’ll taste traditional specialties like bigoli, a local type of spaghetti still made by hand.

After lunch, take a scenic drive through the Euganean Hills and stop at one of the area’s historic Venetian villas. Take a stroll around the grounds before heading back to your starting point at Venice Tronchetto, Verona, or Padua, arriving late afternoon.
