Wine Touring

You could easily spend days exploring the vineyards of the Franciacorta region (www.stradadelfranciacorta.it). To that end, most tourist offices in the region should have a copy of the Franciacorta Wine Route brochure. It details numerous hiking and cycling itineraries through the region (some of which are possible by car), and includes a pull-out list with contact details for over 100 local wineries.
