- Guided visit and wine tasting in a winery
According to the website, they describe the one day tour as follows:
"We will visit one of the most important Cantine of the area, following a guided visit you get a taste of different prosecco wine. You can have also the chance to purchase a few bottles of wine before making our way to the enchanting little town of Follina with the ancient 14th century Abbey. Built on a former Benedictine abbey in the twelfth century building, the present Follina Abbey (1305 Abbot Walter of Lodi - 1335 Abbot Nordio Treviso) shows the typical construction plant with the Latin west facing façade and the apse facing east just as symbolism involved the Cistercian. After free time in Follina just sit back and enjoy the views during the return to Venice."
