Standard Price: 59€
City Card Price: 55€
On this wonderfully cultural day we will spend our time exploring a charming historic city and tasting some of the country’s top wines! In Burgos you will have free to enjoy the beautiful streets, visit the famous UNESCO World Heritage cathedral and have a nice relaxing lunch. Afterwards, we’ll make our way to Portia, one of Ribera del Duero’s most impressive “bodegas“. We will be taken through the architectural masterpiece of Norman Foster’s winery where you can explore where the plump grapes are grown, smell the sweet wines that are being processed, and see countless crates of wines that are being aged to perfection. If this doesn’t excite you, perhaps the wine tasting (guided by a professional) on how to taste the layers of robust flavors will awaken your excitement!
