Tour of 14th Century Fortress in Medieval town of Acquaviva Picena
Wine Tasting at Roberto Capecci Vineyards
Dinner at a seaside Chalet, San Benedetto del Tronto


10:00AM depart from your hotel for a ride along small winding roads and hillsides with views of the Adriatic Sea, olive groves and vineyards.

Arrive at the medieval town of Acquaviva Picena and tour the massive Fortezza built in the 14th century.

You will take a walking tour through the fortress and learn a brief history of the times and how it functioned. Enjoy spectacular views from the lookouts.

Walk through the streets of the ancient city outside the fortress walls and get a glimpse into medieval life. Within these streets you’ll find two churches that illustrate the preeminence of religion during this period.

11.30 AM after the tour you’ll enjoy a cappuccino outside the ancient city walls on the terrace of a local coffee shop.

12:30PM After your cappuccino and shopping there will be a short drive to the Roberto Capecci Vineyards. In this wine tour you’ll learn about the family-owned winery and their wine production. See the whole process from the vineyards to the aging and learn interesting details regarding the differences between organic and natural wines.

Of course, there will be some wine tasting to enjoy some classic Italian delicacies on the covered outdoor patio. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase some of the winery’s premium wines.

2:00 PM From the winery you will be taken back to your hotel for a rest and later in the evening you’ll be taken to the coastal town of San Benedetto del Tronto for a gourmet dinner at a seaside chalet.
