Since July 7, 2019, the hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene are the 55th Italian site on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This area is not only the historic cradle of Prosecco but also a unique place that speaks of rural tradition and tells the ancient stories of heroic vineyards.
From Valdobbiadene we set off in the direction of Guietta and continue to Combai, a small hamlet of Miane with an intact medieval village where you can find vivid elements of the Veneto tradition. On a lovely route through the ancient villages, you continue to Follina and Farrò until you get to Rolle, which in 2004 had the honour of being the first Italian village protected by the FAI. An authentic pearl of the hills of Prosecco that retains its uniqueness thanks to the road that crosses the country and from which you can enjoy a breathtaking landscape. Before continuing on to Solighetto, a stop at the Molinetto della Croda, an ancient watermill that has served as inspiration to poets and film directors, is a must. Inside you can visit the plant with all the elements of the peasantry tradition and, in the winter time, the annual and evocative cribs’ exhibition. Taking on the route to Colbertaldo, you will once again find yourself immersed in the silent charm of the hills and its spectacular vines until the return to Valdobbiadene, after a redolent itinerary dedicated to those who want to fully immerse themselves in nature and rediscover the ancient rural customs.
