Be welcome to my castle

Up the ancient staircases of fascinating medieval castles with the lord of the castle himself who acts as guide, offers an aperitif and then sits down to lunch with his visitors, telling them stories or legends about his ancestors. First of the kind in Italy, the original initiative is aimed at groups of at least 20 visitors, seeking the hidden treasures of this beautiful Region which is not on highly beaten tourist tracks, although next door to Venice, washed by the Adriatic Sea and bordering with Austria and Slovenia.
The tours are tailor-made to meet the requirements of the groups and may include overnight stays, dinners and lunches in private castles or typical restaurants and visits to other attractions such as important wine-cellars, ham factories, historical sites and artisan shops.
Some of the most beautiful private historical houses and castles of the Region participate in the scheme, revealing their secrets and opening up their splendid gardens and halls, often endowed with art collections and atmosphere of the past.
