Our Chianti Wine & Hill Towns Day Tour provides the perfect “Taste of Tuscany” for the first-time visitor. Our itinerary involves limited time driving so that you can thoroughly enjoy the places visited on this tour while indulging in all the pleasures that make Tuscany such a popular destination; Taste fine wines, delight in the local cuisine, stroll around enchanting hill towns and be intoxicated by the splendid vistas and views of the Tuscan countryside.
Panoramic stop at Michelangelo square enjoy a Cappuccino with a view on Florence! A lunch and first wine tasting can be taken in a typical Winery in Chianti. Located at the end of a long dirt road that terminates at a small hamlet lost in the Tuscan countryside, enjoy an undisturbed panoramic view of the hill country and delicious regional cuisine while you fall under the spell of the Tuscan countryside
Visit the Medieval town of San Gimignano and its incredible towers, stroll around this enchanting castle and admire the breath-taking scenery with incredible vistas of the Chianti, and appreciate the slower pace of life that hasn’t changed for centuries as you stroll around the streets of this enchanting hill town.
At Greve in Chianti, the principal town of the Chianti, you’ll have some free time to explore this friendly market town (Market Day is Saturday) with the opportunity to do an optional wine tasting, olive oil tasting and balsamic tasting while in the town. Before lunch, we’ll visit a local vineyard or medieval castle to learn more about the wine-making in the Chianti and to enjoy our first wine tasting of the day.
In the afternoon, we’ll continue our exploration of the Chianti visiting Medieval hilltowns and their fortresses (such Panzano in Chianti) that once formed the league of Chianti in the 13 th Century where you’ll enjoy further incredible views of the countryside.
To celebrate your day tour of the Chianti wine regions we will visit another noted vineyard or medieval castle for your second wine tasting. And while sittiing back savouring the subtle textures and tones of the wine, contemplate the beautiful countryside that has been your constant companion during the day. Following scenic back-roads we’ll make our way back to Florence to finish a very fulfilling and relaxing day in the beautiful Tuscany countryside.
