Chianti Region Tour


A day-trip from Florence in the Chianti region of Tuscany: art, history, scenery, wine tasting

 

 

 

The name Chianti to indicate a wine produced in Tuscany is recorded since the 13th Century. In 1716  Cosimo III de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, issued an edict defining the borders of the Chianti production area, located between the cities of Florence and Siena. Today we still refer to the Chianti region based on the definition given by a 1932 law that extended the Chianti area to include territories around Arezzo, Pisa and Pistoia.


With this day-trip from Florence you will have a taste of Chianti in all senses !

 

  • Lovely towns – This private tour will touch the lovely towns of Montefioralle, Greve and Panzano. They are small, easy to walk and rich with arts and history

 

  • Wonderful sceneries  – The itinerary will take you up and down the roads of the Chianti region, and you will have the chance to see and take beautiful photos of the hills covered with vineyards, olive trees, farmhouses and cypress trees

 

  • Wine tasting  - We will arrange a private wine tasting session in an ancient winery, so that you will learn firsthand the flavor of this great wine with also a visit to the production facilities and the old cellars. Later you can stop in a good trattoria (family-run restaurant) of the region to enjoy an excellent lunch

 

  • Shopping opportunities – There will be opportunities to buy the typical products of the region: extra virgin olive oil, cured meats (like prosciutto, soppressata, finocchiona, sbriciolona) and of course wine and other spirits made from the Chianti grapes



The tour will start with a private limo picking you up at the hotel. We suggest to start the day at 9.00 am, but since this is your private tour, it is up to you to define which time suits you better. At the end of the tour, the driver will take you back to the hotel. Since this is an exclusive tour, it will be only you and your party, no groups, no noise, no wasting time
