Discover one of the oldest wine regions in Italy, the Prosecco Hills

Just an hour’s drive north of Venice, in the foothills of the Dolomites, is one of the world’s best yet largely undiscovered wine regions. Here ancient terraced vineyards clinging to the sides of every possible slope are dedicated exclusively to grapes for Italy’s most prized sparkling wine: Prosecco. Based in an elegant converted villa, located in the heart of the so called 'Prosecco Road' - Italy’s oldest wine route - we spend a week walking through picturesque rolling hills and sampling the area’s delicious cuisine and authentic bubbles. We also visit charming mediaeval villages such as Cison, Follina, Asolo as well as the beautiful capital province of Treviso.

  • Day 1

    Fly to Venice; transfer to Soligo.

    Fly to Venice and transfer to Soligo, a small village located in the heart of the Prosecco hills, approximately 60km north of Venice. The area is picturesque, with lush vineyards covering the slopes of every possible hill and old churches, abbeys, villas and ancient castles dotting the landscape. Prosecco has been produced here for centuries, but only more recently, thanks to the surge in its popularity worldwide, has the area captured the deserved spotlight. Nevertheless, still relatively few tourists visit this wine region each year, making it an ideal location for our week of walking, wine tasting and cultural discovery in a still very authentic rural part of Italy. Depending on the group arrival time, there might be some time for a quick orientation walk near our hotel.


    Meals included: Dinner
  • Day 2

    Morning walk around the mediaeval villages of Cison di Valmarino and Follina;visit a beautiful Cistercians abbey dating back to the 12th century.

    This morning we transfer to the pretty town of Cison di Valmarino, one of the best-preserved villages in the Prosecco area, containing numerous historical monuments and buildings that reveal its past role as major feudal estate. The gentle walk follows a waterway, crossing tranquil woodlands, and passing by the ancient manor and fortress of Castelbrando, which offers panoramic views over the farmland and villages far below. The walk ends in Follina, famous for the Cistercian monastery of Santa Maria, a mystical site enclosing one of Italy’s most beautiful cloisters. The monks were the first to give a boost to the development of the textile sector in this area, weaving wool here from the Middle Ages onwards. In the afternoon we return to the hotel and the remainder of the day is free to relax by the pool (in season) or you may decide to take an optional short walk to the hill of San Gallo overlooking the hotel. (10km, 3 hrs walking )

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch
  • Day 3

    Circular walk in the heartland of the Prosecco region; visit one of the best local producers for wine-tasting and learn about the wine-making process.

    Today's walk takes us to the heartland of the Prosecco hills, namely Valdobbiadene, S. Pietro di Barbozza and S.Stefano. The majority of the winemakers are based right here, amongst the picture-perfect terraced steep hills which are arguably the prettiest of the whole Veneto region. Our walk follows a mix of man-made tracks and paths twisting through the vineyards, and offers spectacular views of the fertile landscape and hamlets perched on the hillsides. During the walk we will have the opportunity to visit of one of the top local Prosecco producers, whose passion for wine making goes back for generations in the family. After a tour of the wine cellars, we will have the opportunity to sample different varieties of Prosecco during a guided wine-tasting (included). We return to the hotel in the afternoon, with free time to enjoy a drink in the outdoor terrace, a dip in the pool or a visit to the spa. (12km walking, 5 hours including stops).

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch
  • Day 4

    Morning guided sightseeing in the elegant provincial capital of Treviso; afternoon relaxing walk through the Natural Park of the River Sile.

    In the morning we transfer to the pretty capital province of Treviso, a real hidden gem often overlooked and perhaps overshadowed by the neighbouring Venice. Rebuilt and restored after Second World War bombing, the town centre is a rambling maze of streets lined with arcaded walkways. The town is circled by a pretty wall and by waterways, which add to its very picturesque and elegant style. After a walking tour of the town's centre accompanied by a local guide, we enjoy some free time to wander around at our own pace and have some lunch (the world-famous Tiramisu was apparently invented in this city, so it is recommended trying some in one of the best cafes in town!). In the afternoon we leave the walls of Treviso behind and follow the water flow of Sile, the longest river of resurgent waters in Europe. This tranquil route through a nature reserve offers the opportunity to explore the local flora and fauna and brings to light many evidences of the age-old relationship between men and this river. Return to the hotel in the evening (10km, 3 hours walking including stops).

    Meals included: Breakfast
  • Day 5

    Visit the UNESCO Palladian Villla Barbaro before ascending to Monte St. Giorgio, originally used as the front line during World War I; walk to the elegant hilltop town of Asolo.

    After a short private transfer we reach another gem of the Prosecco area and the start point of today's walk: Villa Barbaro in Maser. The villa is one of the greatest masterpieces of the famous Italian architect Andrea Palladio (1508-80), and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is situated in the middle of a flourishing privately owned estate, and six of its rooms adorned by beautiful frescos are open to the public. After a short visit, we set off for our walk starting with a climb to Monte San Giorgio, overlooking the villa. The route will then veer west, following one of the original front-lines used during the First World War. The war affected most of this area as well as many other towns around the Prosecco hills. During the walk we are able to see the evidence and memorials of the epic deeds that marked the destiny of generations of people and the course of history throughout the world. Our end point is the elegant hill-top town of Asolo, known as 'the pearl of the province of Treviso', for its beautiful setting and charming historic centre. Free time and return to the hotel for dinner (10km, 4 hours walking including stops).

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch
  • Day 6

    Free day; relax by the hotel's pool, take an optional trip to Venice or spend an afternoon in the pretty town of Conegliano.

    Free day to relax at the hotel's pool (seasonal) or spa, visit the lovely town of Conegliano (the other major centre of Prosecco production and wine studies), or take a day-trip to the one and only Venice (only a short train ride away).

    Meals included: Breakfast
  • Day 7

    Panoramic walk through the alpine landscape of Monte Cesen (1570m): enjoy a 360 degree view of the Venetian Prealps.

    Our final walk takes us above the Prosecco hills, to Mt Cesen, a humble, rounded, grassy mountain, and the highest in its small group of Venetian Prealps. Rising just above the Piave River at an altitude of 1570 meters it offers a stunning panorama and popular walking trails which cross mountain pastures, meadows and a landscape which differs completely to the one we explored earlier in the week. On a clear day, the views can stretch as far as the Eastern Alps, Dolomites, and Venice. In the evening, there will be the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic farewell dinner in one of the best local restaurants located in a panoramic setting in the heart of the Prosecco hills. (7km, 3 hrs walking including stops).

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 8

    Transfer to Venice and fly to London.

    Wonderful mix of walking and wine.

    As the itinerary shows, this a varied week of walks, from some steeper walks through the forest and meadows of the hills with excellent views to calmer river walks. The visit to Treviso was interesting and an excellent opportunity to try tiramisu classico, unlike the tiramisu usually served in the UK, and much better. Plus the Prosecco wine tastings. Not just a tasting, but an education on the various types of Prosecco. The free day allows you to travel to Venice, although we decided to relax with a gentle walk into the centre of Soligo and have a swim in the excellent hotel pool.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Meeting the other walkers. All very friendly. Plus the Prosecco tasting. And talking English to the young waiters and waitresses who enjoyed practising their English.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Serena is brilliant. Probably the best walking guide we have ever had on a trip like this. Great sense of humour and able to communicate with any age group, and deal with any walking ability.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    If you like walking, wine and good food, go!! Take walking boots and trainers. Use poles if you usually use poles.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    This is a very enjoyable trip, with a very good mix of different walks and visits to vineyards, historic villas and also interesting history of area during WW1.

    A magical week in a beautiful part of Italy

    Five days walking, every day different and every day interesting, beautiful and just the right amount of challenge. Authentic Italian meals in a variety of different restaurants. Wine tasting. Visits to cultural sights and a few little thoughtful extras that I won’t tell you about so as not to spoil the surprise. A great young leader, who went above and beyond to give us a fabulous experience.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Having been nervous about my level of fitness not being good enough it was great to do each day’s walk and feel my confidence grow. Definitely the feeling of standing on top of the world.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Serena was amazing. Younger that the group by at least 20 years she looked after us all with skill and tact and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    You can do it . The pace is perfect with plenty of stops along the way to give time to re energise. I would definitely recommend bringing a collapsible walking pole and if you can one of those rucksacks that keeps the sweat off your back.

    We came for the prosecco

    I travelled with my 2 sisters. We'd never done a walking holiday before but we had drank plenty of prosecco! My sister chose the holiday to coincide with a significant birthday. It was a truly memorable holiday, for lots of reasons: It was different (for us anyway); it was an active holiday, contrary to my usual holiday trips; we met some lovely, inspirational people; I got to know a bit more of lovely Italy; I now know all there is to know about prosecco; I can walk uphill; the whole experience was delightful.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Meeting people I'd never met before who had clearly done this kind of holiday before but didn't mind (on the whole) that we hadn't. Thank you for allowing us into your world. Can't wait to be part of it again!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Serena was young, beautiful, fit, knowledgeable, informative, friendly, caring, patient and just plain fantastic! Thank you. For every single moment!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?


    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Everything about the holiday was good. The booking, the flight, the transport to the hotel and beyond, the planning, the hotel, the place, the people, the food but especially the prosecco. Thank you.

    A varied holiday

    This was one of the most enjoyable holidays I have had. The accommodation, the leader, the walks, wine tasting, food and weather were superb.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The walk on our last day to the highest level of the week followed by an excellent dinner.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our leader was very caring and concerned about her party. Although she was quite new to the role she was very well informed and led the walks with great confidence.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Several people in the group went to Venice on our day off and my impression was that those who enjoyed it most had planned in advance where they wanted to go and how to avoid the worst of the crowds. I and another lady went by bus to Connegliano and had a really good day. It is a lovely town so we shopped and then climbed up to the Castle which was very interesting. We had an excellent lunch at the restaurant up there with magnificent views.

    Great trip; great walks; great guide; great scenery; great food and wine

    Late April/early May weather made for great walking without heat and humidity. Fantastic walks, food, and scenery plus Prosecco...what's not to love!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Traveling the Prosecco Road. Love stepping back into history.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our guide grew up in the area and lives there now. She was beyond terrific.
  • Plentiful prosecco....

    This is a fantastic trip with a varied itinerary, including some decent walks, steep both uphill and downhill at times, a guided tour of Treviso, with some free time, and a free day that can be spent in Venice, easily reachable at only an hour on the train. Add to the daily activity, unlimited wine on 4 nights at dinner, and a couple of excellent tastings...all in the beautiful surrounds of northern Italy.....highly recommend!

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Probably for me, visiting Venice, one of the most amazing and unique cities in the world, but the prosecco vending machine half way up a hill, was a welcome delight after a long walk in the heat.... Of course...not to forget.....a fabulous group of fellow travellers, who all got on amazingly well

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Serena....a wonderful Italian woman, fairly new to the job, and local to the area, was a delight. She was very approachable, and felt like a friend to us all.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Some of the walks are steeper in places than I'd expected from the trip notes/reviews. Nothing too difficult, but some fitness and good footwear essential. We were fortunate as didn't have to walk in the rain, but on places it could be quite muddy and slippy, so good footwear essential.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The villa is beautiful, and the pool, if not a bit cold, was a welcome relief after a hot days walking. The food in the hotel is at best average, though the wine is very pleasant....and unlimited. The prosecco tasting at the vineyard was very generous...and an eye opener being introduced to the different varieties of prosecco....I await my case arriving.... shipping costs to the U.K. are very reasonable.

    Prosecco O'clock

    This is an easy introduction to trekking, mainly leisurely walking but with the occasional uphill sting in the tail. Very do-able but please make sure you have at least some basic fitness. Our group was fantastic, everyone dovetailed and good friends were made. The walking days were interesting, it wasn't just a trek, there were points of interest and the local history, particularly the First World War was fascinating. Obviously Prosecco plays a part. The vineyards and the tastings were varied. If you enjoy Prosecco you will not be disappointed.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Most of the group went to Venice on the free day, who wouldn't be inspired by that!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Bob was great, an older Exodus hand, who was coaching Serena who was to take over the reins. So we were blessed with two guides. The interaction between leader and group was just about right and Bob was able to arrange all sorts of activities for one of the group who was carrying an injury which curtailed his walking.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Don't just drink Prosecco, the local red is excellent. The hotel food is okay and the wine is complimentary and non stop, the bottles keep on coming.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I would recommend this trip for those who want a not too strenuous trek in Italy, with amazing scenery.

  • Walking the Prosecco Hills

    A really wonderful trip overall, great to get off the beaten track in areas of Italy with very few tourists. Well planned walks in beautiful scenery and towns, plentiful wine and interesting conversation made for a very relaxing week, you really felt far away from the pressures of day to day life.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The second full day walking through the vineyards, having a cold beer (do try some Italian beer as well as prosecco!) overlooking the hills followed by the fascinating and beautiful winery tour and tasting. The lady who ran it was hugely knowledgeable and warm. Day two is a perfect day. Also Venice on the free day, I still can hardly believe I've been to Venice now, it was amazing.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Bob was immense. The group was more diverse in terms of ability and expectations than I thought it would be and he dealt with resulting challenges calmly and professionally. His knowledge of the area and history added a huge amount to the walks and the sheer amount of information he provided for the free day was amazing, it made it so much easier and took any potential stress out of the day, I just did what Bob suggested, job done!

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    As always, read the reviews and the trip notes carefully. Exodus will never be able to win with the ratings, but the clue is in the title, there are hills involved, but only moderately. If you never walk at home you'll find it a little hard, if you scale Munros then the walking will be easy and you'll be there for the scenery, company food and wine. A couple of the restaurants struggled a bit with the concept of vegetarianism for the 3rd course where they would usually have meat which is a shame in an area with such beautiful produce that so much went to waste, and when we had so much lovely food in the other courses that we didn't need 4 anyway! It would almost be worth seeing if your leader can negotiate not to have the 3rd course (or in one case Bob asked for a simple omelette which was lovely.)

    Walking in the Prosecco Hills

    Pleasant walking, late September sunshine, plentiful food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Finding a Prosecco vending machine on the side of a hill in the middle of nowhere. Italians have their priorities right!

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Bob knew the area very well and outlined each day in great detail beforehand, so we knew what to expect. We had a free day in Venice at the end of the tour too (as our flights were coming back in the evening rather than the usual morning flight) and he went above and beyond the call of duty, taking us to Venice airport, putting our luggage into storage, then getting us a return bus ticket into Venice, before accompanying us there and showing us to the water taxi.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for vast amounts of food at the hotel! The chef is a lovely old guy in his 80s who seems to see it as his duty to come and pile more food onto your plate at every opportunity. As most meals are 3-4 courses, there's no reason for seconds!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    I wasn't a fan of Prosecco before doing this trip...but during the two tastings we had on this itinerary, we learnt there's a whole range (rather than just the fizzy stuff we get in the UK) and I stumbled onto a few I liked. I came home with 3 bottles!

Dates & Prices

An overview of flight options

Exodus is committed to making joining our tours as easy as possible, wherever you live. We generally only block book seats from London, but this certainly does not mean that you need to fly from there. Depending on the route and airlines available, there will usually be various options available for those who want to fly from their local airport.

This page aims to provide a useful overview of the options available to our clients. However, the best flight arrangements should be tailored to your personal requirements, so please contact our Sales team for expert advice.


What kind of options do I have ?

1. We can book for you: Flights from anywhere in the world - not via London  

Depending on the route, this may be direct or via an overseas hub like Amsterdam, the Middle East or elsewhere. On short haul routes there may be direct flights with low cost airlines, charter flights or scheduled airlines. Exodus can book most, but not all, of these for you. The most appropriate airline may be different to that which we use for the group flight from London, but many people now travel on different airlines and meet up with their fellow passengers at the destination.

Pros Cons
  • May be the most direct route
  • Often the extra fare compared to the London flight is minimal.
  • As you will be in the hands a single airline for your entire journey, the airline will be responsible for your bags and your connections.
  • You may not be able to join the group transfers. However, we can usually arrange private transfers, or book your flights to try and coincide with the group transfers. See notes on transfer arrangements below.


2. We can book for you: Connecting flights from your local airport to London

Exodus can book connecting flights to London so you can join the group flight there. Connecting times will be followed according to airline advice, or as requested by clients. There are two types of fares we can use for this option: a 'through-fare' or a 'published fare'.
a) A 'through-fare' is where you will be in the main airline's care throughout. You change planes, but your bags are checked all the way through to your final destination. 

b) A 'published fare' ticket is completely seperate from your onward ticket from London. It is usually cheaper than a through-fare but will need to be paid for and issued as soon as it is booked. This can be a problem if your tour has not yet reached minimum numbers. On 'published fares' neither airline is aware that you have connecting flights, so Exodus is responsible for timing your connection, not the airlines involved. The tickets are also usually non changeable and non refundable.

Pros Cons
  • Depending on the fare type, Exodus or the airline is responsible for flight connections.
  • Through fare tickets can be expensive.
  • On a published fare, tickets must be issued immediately; tickets on published fares can be very difficult to change if onward flight times change; bags are not checked though to your final destination.
  • Published fares are non-refundable.


3. Booking some or all of the flights yourself

You can also book connecting air travel yourself, either to London, or all the way to the start point. There may be certain airlines or routes we don't have access to, so this is always an option. However, if you make your own travel arrangements you become liable for any delays, cancellations or missed connections, and Exodus is not required to offer refunds if you have trouble reaching the start of your trip.

Pros Cons
  • You might find cheaper fares, or routes not available to Exodus.
  • You are responsible for any delays or missed connections, and the cost of the tour is not protected should you miss your flight be cancelled.


 Notes on transfer arrangements

Sometimes it is possible to travel on a different airline to the group flight from London. Where this is the case, we need to think about ensuring you meet up with the group with minimum extra cost and hassle.

  • On certain trips, it is easy to arrive on a different flight and still meet the group at the hotel with time in hand. We can usually arrange private transfers (at extra cost) or offer advice on taking a taxi to the start hotel.
  • On other trips (especially in Europe), the transfer meets the group flight and then travels some distance to the first night's accommodation. Where this is the case, our Sales team will try to arrange flights that arrive before (and depart after) the group. However, we do have to make it clear in your final documentation that if your flights are delayed, the transfer cannot wait for you. While Exodus or our local operators will do what we can to help you reach the start point of the tour, any additional costs must be paid by the client.
