Travel back to toga-wearing days in Aquileia, an Ancient Roman town that dates back to 181 BC. Your guide will show you all the star sights of this riverside settlement, the highlight of which has to be the cathedral. Built in a Romanesque-Gothic style, it’s an unmissable landmark that comes wallpapered and carpeted with beautifully-preserved mosaics. You’ll also see open-air Roman ruins, believed to be the largest Roman city to be fully excavated. It’s then on to a local vineyard, where you’ll have a chance to try some of the region’s superb red and whites.
