San Francisco. It's all the images and ideas come to life: the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, Chinatown, pastel Victorian houses, steep hills, extraordinary restaurants and so forth.

Monday, 10 Jul 2017: Muir Woods; Winery Visit; Culinary Institute of America (B,D)
We begin our day with a visit to Muir Woods where we take a short nature walk on the main trail (flat and paved). As we make our way north to the Napa Valley, we drive through endless vineyards until we reach St. Helena and Calistoga, where there will be time to explore these charming towns. After lunch, we'll visit a local winery and enjoy a tasting. Then we head to the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) at Greystone for a tour. The CIA Greystone, housed in the former Christian Brothers winery, features a wide variety of innovative professional programs. Its grand cathedral ceilings, massive hand-cut stone walls and antiques will inspire you to go home cook up a feast! We finish our day by having dinner together. Overnight Napa - 2 nights
Tuesday, 11 Jul 2017: Napa Wine Train (B,Lunch on train)
The Napa Valley Wine Train provides a relaxing three-hour journey from the historic town of Napa through one of the world's most famous wine valleys. Aboard the Wine Train we will enjoy a freshly prepared lunch (alcohol not included) as we view the vineyards and wineries from any of the vintage 1915-1917 rail cars that have been lavishly restored. Later we'll go exploring depending on how much of the day remains.
Wednesday, 12 Jul 2017: Rubicon Estate (Coppola Winery); Farewell Dinner (B,D)
Our day begins with a visit to the massive winery estate of Niebaum Coppola (owned by Francis Ford Coppola). Not only will our tastebuds be mellowed by the fine wines but we will also tour the onsite museum dedicated to Coppola's work in the film industry. We will visit the Oxbow Public Market where plenty of items are for sale that would make a nice light lunch. We conclude our day by traveling back to San Francisco and spend the night near the airport for convenience sake. Overnight San Francisco - 1 night
