What to Expect
Your full-day tour starts with a pickup from your Pompeii hotel in the morning. Aboard your private minivan, travel through the lowlands that run alongside Mt Vesuvius and ascend into the mountains of Partenio Regional Park. Then, descend into the valley of Avellino, the capital city of the Camapnia region, surrounded by beautiful peaks and vineyard-covered slopes that produce some of Italy's best-known wines.

Soon, arrive in the heart of the rural countryside, where foods are produced combining traditional and modern methods. Your first stop is at an olive orchard. Meet the producer and head to the oil mill for a tour of the production facilities. End in the tasting room to enjoy a selection of their fine olive oils. Next, walk to a nearby prosciutto factory to view the production process of cured meat — a long-time Italian favorite — and see a range of sights from raw pork legs to the curing rooms to the final product. Savor mouthwatering prosciutto slices after your tour.

Your next stop, a little further down the road, is at a traditional nougat and chocolate factory. Here, typical Italian candy is made for special festivities such as Easter. Follow your visit of the production rooms with a tasting of their sugary treats.

After teasing your palate, head to a local restaurant to sit down to a 3-course lunch of regional specialties, which vary depending on the season. Wash your meal down with house wine, followed by coffee or a

digestif (amaro or grappa). Kids can enjoy soft drinks and juice with their lunch. In the afternoon, head to the village of Taurasi, home of one of Italy's most notable wines: the Taurasi DOCG. Visit a prestigious local venue for a wine-tasting session, during which a professional sommelier will explain winemaking in the Avellino province and explain the wine's complex flavors and aromas.

Walk to a unique atmospheric winery, built out of ancient materials, for your second wine tasting to savor award-winning wines in the tasting room. Step onto the terrace to enjoy views of the vineyards. Then, relax on the drive back to Pompeii, where your full-day tour ends in the evening.
