Chianina Cattle Encounter

Chianina Beef Tasting

Visit to a Medieval city

Wine Tasting with Gianluca

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Discover rare grape varieties and experience the pure essence of Spoleto's terroir

After breakfast, head towards Bevagna. There you’ll meet the young cattle breeder Riccardo, who specializes in the largest and oldest breed of cattle in the world, the Chianina. Riccardo will proudly show you his animals and tell you lots of interesting information about the Chianina breed, including details about breeding and the quality of the meat. With the newly learned knowledge, enjoy sampling Chianina beef for lunch in the beautiful village of Bevagna. After, stroll around the medieval town and enjoy the charm of the stone houses and the city walls. In the afternoon, continue on towards Spoleto where you’ll meet the wine producer Gianluca, who has revived an almost disappeared grape variety and is very committed to the Spoleto DOC appellation. During the tasting, you will understand why. His wines are completely natural, meaning that they have been spontaneously fermented with the yeast from the grapes. No chemicals are used and the wines are not technically filtered. Before leaving for Trevi on the other side of the valley, your tour guide will show you Spoleto, another medieval town, where you will enjoy dinner.

Visit to Colfiorito Regional Park

Cultural Exploration in Foligno

Local Agricultural Experience with Marco

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Harvest your own lentils with Marco in Parco Colfiorito, embracing the timeless tradition of hand-picking

Are you ready for a little hike? Colfiorito Regional Park is located on a high plateau, the formation of which can be traced back to the karst rock. A total of seven plateaus around the town of Colfiorito—760 metres above sea level—were created by the drying out of lakes, of which only one swamp area remains. The park is now home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, but the area is best known for growing lentils, spelt, and the red potato (Colfiorito IGP). The name Colfiorito means “flowering pass” (colle fiorito), because when the lentils bloom in June, the pass becomes a sea of colours. After your hike, get to know Marco, who grows lentils, spelt, and red potatoes in Parco Colfiorito. He will tell you about the peculiarities of the soil and the microclimate, and there will certainly be something to try. On the way back to Trevi, your guide will stop in Foligno. This nice little town was declared the centre of the Earth in ancient times (lu centru de lu munnu).

Enjoy a guided tour of Assisi with its various historical, artistic, natural, and gastronomic attractions. Stay for lunch and explore on your own to really get to know the city—it's worth it. On the way home, your tour guide will stop in the “blooming village” (borgo fiorito) of Spello. You will have some time for yourself before meeting the rest of the group for dinner.

FAQs

Treten Sie als Reisender vor Reisebeginn zurück oder tritt er die Reise nicht an, so verliert Ventura den Anspruch auf den Reisepreis. Stattdessen kann Ventura eine angemessene Entschädigung vom Reisenden verlangen. Dies gilt nicht, sofern der Rücktritt von Ventura zu vertreten ist oder wenn am Bestimmungsort oder in dessen unmittelbarer Nähe unvermeidbare, außergewöhnliche Umstände auftreten, die die Durchführung der Pauschalreise oder die Beförderung von Personen an den Bestimmungsort erheblich beeinträchtigen; Umstände sind unvermeidbar und außergewöhnlich, wenn sie nicht der Kontrolle derjenigen Vertragspartei unterliegen, die sich hierauf beruft, und sich ihre Folgen auch dann nicht hätten vermeiden lassen, wenn alle zumutbaren Vorkehrungen getroffen worden wären.

Ventura hat diesen ihm zustehenden Entschädigungsanspruch in den nachfolgenden Stornopauschalen festgelegt. Die Berechnung erfolgt unter Berücksichtigung des Zeitpunktes des vom Reisenden erklärten Rücktritts bis zum vertraglich vereinbarten Reisebeginn, der zu erwartenden Ersparnis von Aufwendungen und den zu erwartenden Erwerb durch eine anderweitige Verwendung der Reiseleistungen. Die Entschädigung wird nach dem Zeitpunkt des Zugangs der Rücktrittserklärung bei Ventura oder dem Reisemittler wie folgt berechnet:

a) allgemeine Stornopauschale (in Prozent des Reisepreises):

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif CLASSIC: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 20% ab dem 64. bis 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 25% ab dem 29. bis 15. Tag vor Reiseantritt 45% ab dem 14. bis 7. Tag vor Reiseantritt 60% ab dem 6. Tag vor Reiseantritt 80% am Tag des Reiseantritts und bei Nichterscheinen 90%

Für Buchungen im Reisetarif FLEXI: bis 65 Tage vor Reiseantritt 0% ab dem 64. bis zum 45. Tag vor Reiseantritt 10% ab dem 44. bis zum 30. Tag vor Reiseantritt 20% ab 29 Tagen vor Abflug sind die Stornogebühren identisch mit denen des Tarifs CLASSIC

b) besondere Stornopauschale:

Sonderangebote/Specials, individuell ausgearbeitete Pauschalreisen sowie Gruppenreisen können besonderen Stornierungsbedingungen unterliegen, auf die in der jeweiligen Leistungsbeschreibung bzw. Reiseausschreibung/Angebot und der Reisebestätigung nach Art. 250 §§ 3, 6 EGBGB ausdrücklich hingewiesen wird.

Ventura behält sich vor, anstelle der vorstehenden Stornopauschalen eine höhere, konkret berechnete Entschädigung zu fordern, soweit Ventura das Entstehen wesentlich höherer Aufwendungen als die jeweils anwendbare Stornopauschale nachweisen kann.
