Trentino Alto-Adige Awaits You!

South Tyrol (or Alto-Adige in Italian) is the most northern province of Italy, bordering north with Austria and south with the area of Trentino. Once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it is almost fully covered with mountains, a haven for skiers in the winters, and hikers in the summer. The breathtaking views from the top of the mountains have no rivals, and the lower portions of the slopes are covered with vineyards that produce some of the best wines Italy has to offer, especially whites but not only: Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Sylvaner, Santa Maddalena…. ring any bells? Via Vitae Travels has explored for you this region for the first time with a test tour in 2018: we couldn’t have been happier with the positive feedback we’ve received! Don’t believe us? Then see what other industry experts have to say about this area:

Dear Friends,

We approach the end of 2020, and we hope that you are healthy and well!

It’s been a very strange year, to say the least, and we look forward to a new beginning. We were planning for a few journeys in Italy during this 2020, and while that, unfortunately, did not happen we are hopeful that we will be able again to travel together in 2021.

We look forward to seeing you again soon in person, and to build memories together!

From the Via Vitae Travels Team:

BEST WISHES OF A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS

AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR, TO YOU AND YOURS!

he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought,
doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…
perhaps…means a little bit more!”

BUON FERRAGOSTO!

WHAT IS FERRAGOSTO?

August is a crazy month in Italy. For Italians, it is often the best month of the year – a time for vacation, family, friends, and the beach. But it is also the height of tourist season, and hotel prices soar to 3 or even 4 times their usual rates while restaurants are reserved months in advance. The reason for all this excitement centers around……. ——> read more

Special Edition:  Reporting from Le Langhe

Dear Friends – It’s been an interesting year so far, to say the least! Slowly but steadily things have gotten back to normal here in Piemonte and in Italy. As we write, the Italian Government just decided for the next few months’ health policies to keep us all safe and healthy, but we just could not sit around and wait any longer! With such beautiful weather, the flexibility of health emergency rules, and vicinity to the beloved destination of Langhe and Roero, this past weekend we went to visit some of our local friends and run a test-tour for you!

First and foremost: people are as welcoming as we remembered, even more actually: whoever works in the wine, food and travel industry is really looking forward to receiving customers and get back to the social life that is such an important part of what they do every day!

We socialized, ate, and drank, went for walks, relaxed, took naps, and looked at the beautiful scenery. Breathtaking views over the Barolo hills for breakfast, sunset over a wonderful dinner, terraces in Verduno and La Morra that have the most amazing views of the prized vineyards, and a quick pick at the Cappella del Barolo – nothing was missing! We tested it all for you and we are 101% sure now you will have the most wonderful time when you’ll join Via Vitae Travels in 2021 for our Passion for Piemonte Tour!

Here are some pictures of our mini-vacation (by Vanda Z. C. – all rights reserved). Thanks mom for the pics! See it with your own eyes what awaits for you next year. Enjoy!!

 

About Le Langhe and Roero

The Langhe and Roero district of Italy is famous for being one of the most charming landscapes in the Region of Piedmont, and Italy. Rolling hills, quaint villages atop of cliffs,  prized vineyards, and long gastronomic traditions. For food and wine lovers, this area is the height of excellence, ideal for relaxing and enjoying the good life along with nature and art.

About Via Vitae Travels

Via Vita Travels specializes in customized wine, culinary and cultural vacations highlighting specific regions in Italy. Through the years we have established solid local relationships, in many regions of Italy as Piemonte, Veneto, and Puglia. Each package we offer allows you to experience the region as a local instead of as a tourist and it’s crafted for intimate groups, never more than 12 people, to enhance the overall experience. See, do, and taste things most tourists never have the opportunity to experience! We invite you to take this journey of life with us!
