Surprise your partner with a 3-4 hour hot-air balloon ride, which includes breakfast and wine tasting and an experienced pilot of course.

Then go on an off-road Quad bike adventure. Quad is a four-wheeled ATV made for all kinds of terrain. For the knowledge seekers there are organized wine classes filled with different wine testing in English in a beautiful country house surrounded by olive groves in Todi, Umbria.
