We loved the little towns we visited. The owner of the winery was very generous and hospitable. We could see his passion in his work. He was casual, and this created a fun, relaxing environment. To us the prices of the wine and shipping was very reasonable. I believe one of the main highlights for us was the driver Andrea. We enjoyed his stories and his charisma. Totally would recommend him!

ITINERARY

Piazzale Michelangelo

We start from the pick-up point at 8:00 am and then drive for 15 minutes towards Piazzale Michelangelo, a stunning panoramic view spot in Florence. From this elevated terrace, you can see all of Florence’s top attractions without any of the city’s traffic. This is a must-see spot for tourists and locals alike who want to take in the beauty of Florence. From here, you can really appreciate all that the city has to offer. The large square is home to a replica of Michelangelo’s David in bronze.

Duration: 15 minutes

We’ll drive to reach San Gimignano, a beautiful walled city. The drive will take approximately one hour and we’ll arrive at 9:30 am. San Gimignano is a town that is oozing with history and charm. It’s well-known for its delicious ice cream and impressive stone towers. These towers were built during medieval times and served as a form of defense. Of the 72 towers that once stood, 14 remain today – a testament to their strength and durability. In 1990, the town’s center was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes

We’ll drive for 50 minutes towards a typical Tuscan farmhouse in the Chianti area. We’ll take you on a trip to the stunning Tuscan wine country, where you’ll get to experience delicious wine tasting and lunch amidst the incredible views of the Tuscany countryside. You’ll visit a beautiful farmhouse with amazing cellar, and enjoy some of the most famous wines in Italy while indulging in a delicious lunch made with local ingredients.

We’ll cap off our journey at a family-run organic wine estate in the province of Florence, where you’ll get to try some other superb Chianti wines. After all, you can’t really say you know Chianti until you’ve tried at least 5 or 6 different types of wine from the area.

Fabio was a fantastic guide with lots of knowledge. A great tour for people who want to see Tuscany. Beautiful towns, incredible countryside and ended with a brilliant wine tasting. Highly recommend

Our tour guide was personable, knowledgeable and entertaining. We were part of very small group and felt that all got very personal attention. The wine tasting and tour of the winery was great. And the wine, snacks more like a small meal were wonderful as was the hostess at the winery. Would recommend it to friends and family and will when any of them visit Florence

We could not have enjoyed our day more! Our driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The three stops were perfect, broke up the ride so we never felt we were in the car too long. We were lucky to be joined by a nice couple as well. The winery was lovely. It was a beautiful day!

Our guide Amiiano was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its history. He was down to earth and friendly. It felt like we were spending a nice day with friends (4 tourists + Amiliano). At every stop, he gave us iPads that had pre=programmed areas of interest on the map so we can be efficient with our exploration. At the end of our tour, Amiliano even busted out a bottle of Prosecco for us to share and toast to a great day.
