Chianti Wine Area and Siena

€ 480.00

With plump grapes flourishing in the Tuscan sunshine, the Chianti region produces some of Italy's finest wines - but reaching the remote wineries can be challenging. On this tour, begin with pickup at your hotel in Florence (but the tour is doable from other towns and even from Rome) and spin into the Tuscan countryside. With your Private Driver at the wheel, sample locally made wines in medieval hilltop towns including Siena, and find out what makes Chianti wines so special.

In addition to the breathtaking views of the vineyards and olive groves, Chianti is best known among the tourists for its abbeys, villas, castles, wineries, and restaurants. For this reason, the journey itself is a magnificent path along the roads of Tuscany, where it is possible to enjoy the view of hills covered by vineyards, olives tree, small villages and original bell towers. The inhabitants of this region continue to live in small stone villages, the most of which are on the tops of hills and still of medieval plant.

But the word "Chianti" for every Italian means above all one thing: good wine! For this reason, during the trip your Driver/guide will prepare you for the wine tastings you will have during this day-tour. There are hundreds of wineries and farmhouses in this area of Tuscany and your local driver will choose the ones that suit your tastes. You will visit splendid original old cellars, where the famous barrels of the Chianti Classico wine are produced, will taste the local production of wine and oil and - of course - you will also experience a typical Tuscan lunch at one of the wineries visited during the day.

Time permitting, you will have the chance to stop and have a walk in Siena, probably Italy's loveliest medieval city. The town offers magnificent masterpieces and incredible views. During your stroll, discover Piazza del Campo, the main central square whose shape remembers an enormeous shell.
