The Feletto hills span from Conegliano to Pieve di Soligo, in the heart of the Prosecco DOCG area of Conegliano-Valdobbiadene.

Among the many surprises you may discover, the church of Saint Peter is one of the best. The mild autumn helps enjoy this piece of Tuscany with wineyards of Prosecco DOCG, olive trees and cypresses.

The Pieve (Pleban church) of San Pietro, dating to the 11th century and perhaps built over the ruins of a Pagan temple, has a medieval portal under which are five frescoes of St. Antony Abbot, Virgin with Child, Virgin with Saints, Sacrifice of Cain and Abel and Sunday Christ. The interior, with a nave and two aisles, has frescoes from the 12th-15th centuries. The apse features a Christ Pantocrator between the Virgin and St. Peter dating to the 13th century.
