Avellino is the land of great noble wines. Our tour allows access into all the main wine cellars in the area, where the following three wines are produced: (1) The “Greco di Tufo”, an aristocratic wine that was first introduced by the Greeks from Thessaly. It’s straw-colored, golden yellow, pleasing, and characteristic aroma, dry harmonic taste goes well with all dishes. (2) The “Fiano”, an antique wine from the Latin “vitis apiana” (as it attracts bees), very aromatic and can also be served as an aperitif. It is Yellow-straw colored, intense pleasant aroma, and dry taste (like toasted hazelnuts) goes well with all fish-based dishes. (3) The “Tauràsi”, considered as one of the best “reds” in Italy and was the first in Campania to be awarded the prestigious DOCG. It’s ruby, burgundy color and acquires orange reflections with aging, has a pleasing aroma, dry and aromatic taste goes well with lasagna, game, roasts, mushrooms and strong or seasoned cheeses.

Unlike Pompeii and even Herculaneum, Paestum can often be deserted. The gleaming white marble of ancient Greek temples, set against the dark brown hills and deep blue sea, provide a very Greek experience in Italy. Today, the preserved temple of Hera II (once believed to be the Temple of Poseidon) is one of three. (See also the temple of Hera I) Part of the interior is a colonnade with two rows of columns, including the superimposed upper level which supported the roof, therefore illustrating the standard Doric form: 6 columns on the end and 14 columns on the side. We recommend hiring a guide for the sites and to visit the archaeological museum in the vicinity, which contains a rich collection of Greek art and antiquities. This tour includes a Professional English-speaking driver.

Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our drivers can only comment and explain the sights from inside the vehicle and are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. A guide, where needed, can be hired on request at an extra cost.', 'Comfortable walking shoes are suggested for this tour.
