It is hard to pick our favorite thing in this tour in that all of it was great. Our guide was Camilla, who was excellent. In addition to her native Italian, she speaks fluent English, French and German, but our particular tour was all in English.
Arqua Petraca was a unique little medieval village. We particulary enjoyed a visit to the house of Petrarca, a famous Italian poet. There, Camilla gave us an interesting history of Petrarca, his loves and life.
We also enjoyed a visit to Brodo di Arqua Petrarca where we tasted unique awesom liquors. We then went to Evo del Borgo and both learned about the making of olive oil and tasting several types of olive oil. Greatly increased our appriciation of olive oil.
his trip was a wonderful break from the crowds and bustle of Venice and Padova.
