Travel Program

The Etruscans, one of the most mysterious peoples of antiquity. Arezzo, one of the twelve Locuminias, offers us the opportunity to get to know this people thanks to Etruscan works found in the city, such as the Chimera and Minerva. The archaeological museum "Gaio Cilnio Mecenate", inside the former monastery of the Olivetan monks, built in turn on the remains of the Roman amphitheater, offers the opportunity to see numerous objects from the Etruscan period: amphorae, jewels, decorative plates and busts clay and heads that portray male and female characters and children's faces. Everyone knows Tuscany for its food and wine traditions, but not everyone knows that the Etruscans were the first to grow the sapling vines as we cultivate them today. The purpose of Etruscan Vinification, in addition to research, is to spread a system lost 2500 years ago and to make known the naturalness of Etruscan Wine, vinified in terracotta jars insulated with waxes and resins buried at a depth of 3 meters. On this occasion there will be the opportunity to taste a real grape juice accompanied by tastings cooked following Etruscan recipes.
