The tour...

  • Since 1333, the strong city walls of Montecarlo have concealed a terrace with a wonderful panoramic view over the plain of Lucca and nowadays we also find a stone craftsman and a wine cellar where you can sample the best local wines and typical snacks.
  • It was Napoleon who thought that the strength of the local grapes would marry well with the harshness of some French grapes and various French grapes have been part of the official Montecarlo blend since 1810. We’ll taste this result together. Montecarlo’s fine wine and the quality of life here are assuredly linked to the unpolluted forests and woods, the clean air and beautiful landscape – all these elements are here to enjoy in this truly charming village.

Ideas...

The Montecarlo tour is a half-day excursion. We can combine it with another half-day tour such as visiting the country houses around Lucca, Lucca itself or Altopascio.
