The Perugian poet, Giosuè Carducci, left a memorable description of Umbria with the term “the green heart of Italy,” where every imaginable shade of green can be witnessed in one breath.

Experience the beauty, history, wine, and flavors of Umbria through your guided tour of the Monte Vibiano Castle, the ancient Vigna Lorenzo vineyard, and the Cantina Monte Vibiano winery. Leave with your driver and guide on a picturesque journey from Civitavecchia for a visit of the historic center of the Umbrian hilltop town of Todi. Capture impressive views from every direction and enjoy a coffee break in Todi before you continue the journey to Monte Vibiano Castle. Arrive at the 2,000-year-old castle owned by the Fasola Bologna family since the 19th century.

Your guided tour starts through a medieval iron gate and a guarding tower as you make your way to the beautiful castle gardens. Visit the private family chapel to view unusual and fascinating paintings by a famous Umbrian painter. Proceed to the Elizabethan labyrinth, an original green theatre, and a historical swimming pool. Learn about the Etruscan origins of the castle and the Vibi family who produced two Roman Emperors. Leave the castle behind you with a short drive to the entrance of the olive grove. Electric cars await you for a drive through the ancient olive trees to the evocative Vigna Lorenzo, which dates to the times of the Carthaginians, who under Hannibal defeated the Romans in 217 BC. Discover the traditions and legends that soak the soil of this magical environment, where the Fasola-Bologna Family lead Italy’s green revolution in the production of wine and olive oil with zero CO2 emissions.

Depart from Vigna Lorenzo with the electric cars on a scenic ride to the winery. At Cantina Monte Vibiano, accompany an expert sommelier on a tour of the vinification and barrel rooms of the environmentally sensitive winery. Learn how wine is produced and aged using pioneering sustainable processes. Conclude your winery tour on a panoramic terrace with a wine tasting experience and a three-course meal representing the best flavors of Umbria. Return to Civitavecchia, but not before a mid-way stop for a visit and coffee break in Piazza Martiri d'Ungheria in the ancient city of Viterbo.
