Cortona&Passignano with olive oil tasting private day trip from Rome

Take this private day trip from Rome, to visit the charming town of Cortona, 'Under the Tuscan Sun City'. Frances Mayes’ heart warming true story, and the popular film it inspired, has brought millions of tourists to Cortona. Its dominant position over the valley offers also a spectacular view from all over the town of the surrounding valley. The itinerary of this journey includes a scenic drive along Lake Trasimeno with stop at Passignano, the gem of the area. Last destination is a charming rural complex which is situated at the entrance to the atmospheric, noble promontory of Monte del Lago. Set between the walls of the village which jut out over the lake, and surrounded by its olive groves, for almost a century the local family has rigorously and enthusiastically produced the extra-virgin olive oil that has made it famous.
