Wine Tasting

Gourmet gastronomy with a side of Campo dei Fiori views while you dine, at a hideaway near Lake Maggiore – includes flights, car hire, half board, a six-course tasting meal, optional sommelier experience and more

  • With an exceptional restaurant, spectacular views over the Italian countryside and an unbeatable location close to Lake Maggiore, the 17th-century Albergo Colonne doesn't do things by halves. Epitomising la dolce vita under one roof, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-awarded hideaway makes quite the gourmet getaway.

  • Views aside, the pièce de résistance here is the Michelin-recommended restaurant, where Michelin-starred chef Silvio Battistoni serves up lip-smacking cuisine – perfected by a fine wine list. You'll be treated to a six-course tasting menu, and can opt to spend an afternoon with a professional sommelier learning about (and tasting) the region's wines.

  • Elsewhere, you'll find Bistrot for quick bites, coffees and traditional ice creams. Your room is individually designed, with a traditional style in keeping with the historic feel of the hotel. The space is decorated with antique furnishings, plush textiles and lovely florals, and you’ll also have your own balcony from which you can enjoy the crisp air.
