About Tour

For the first two monetary emissions, Vlad II used his emblem, the dragon, therefore, the Romanians whose word stock is mainly Latin, nicknamed him Dracul – Dracula (from Latin Draco – onis). In Romanian Drac means Devil. This nickname turned into surname for his descendants, Vlad III, his son being known as such. Vlad Tepes (the Impaller), being the son of Vlad Dracul, one of the most important landlords of Valachia, ruled Valachia from 1456 and nowadays he is known also as Price Dracula.

Cara Victoria!

Sono stata piacevolmente sorpresa dalla qualità e dal gusto dei vini rumeni e moldavi. Sono stata sorpresa dalla diversità dei vini e delle regioni da cui provengono. Il viaggio in Romania e il viaggio in Moldavia sono stati sia divertenti che educativi. Non solo ho imparato a conoscere i vini, ma anche i paesi. La Romania e la Repubblica di Moldavia sono paesi di sfida che più persone dovrebbero sperimentare. I servizi forniti erano eccezionali.

I piccoli extra che hanno aggiunto al tour hanno fatto la differenza e la nostra guida Victoria è stata la migliore! Il momento clou per me è stata la Vinia Winery di Iasi. Il viaggio in carrozza trainata da cavalli fino alla vigna, la raccolta della propria uva, la produzione del proprio succo, la tranquillità della terra e l'ascolto della banda di zingari è stata un'esperienza di una vita.

Grazie mille! È stato un grande piacere per me!

Il viaggio è stato davvero organizzato al meglio. Strutture, veicolo, autista e soprattutto la guida Cristina molto brava! La Moldavia è molto piacevole, specialmente i monasteri. Siamo tornati addirittura da un viaggio gastronomico un po'alticci. I vini e la cucina sono proprio buoni!

Grazie ancora!
