Enjoy the Carso (Karst) countryside while walking through vineyards and olive groves, visit beautiful wine cellars carved in the rock, taste exquisite cheeses, salamis, olive oil and the famous Terrano wine as well as other quality local delicacies produced in this scenic area surrounding Trieste.
Day 1: You will be picked up from your accommodation in Trieste at 9:30 am to start an exciting day touring little villages in the Carso hills, visiting local cheese, olive oil and wine producers that will hospitably open up their farms for you to sample their excellent home-made products. From Duino Aurisina to Opicina, there's a succession of typical Carso hamlets and fortified villages, each with its own history, beauty and unique characteristics that we will discover by walking through them, following the signs along the trails and, why not, by chatting with the locals what will be happy to share their past and present way of life.
We'll stop in a couple of wine cellars and experience wine tasting before stopping at an "osmizza", a typical and informal eating place where farmers sell their meats, cheeses and wine and where it is possible to taste a traditional Carso menu accompanied by Terrano wine. In the afternoon we'll visit a couple of olive oil and cheese producers, before returning to your hotel in the later afternoon.
