Private day trip to the Chianti Region
The essence of Tuscany and its wine country
Our Siena, San Gimignano & Tuscan Wine Tour is our most scenic tour from Florence, a full immersion in the breathtaking region of Tuscany! A perfectly planned day for visitors who want to relax in comfort and avoid the crowds while enjoying a private tour of our favorite towns and the beauties of the Tuscan countryside
PICK UP TIME Suggested 9:00 am to avoid big crowds at least in the first part of the morning (it is flexible and you can decide when).
BADIA A PASSIGNANO Your professional English speaking driver will take you to Badia a Passignano, an Abbey founded in 1049 consisting of a more or less square fortified monastic complex with corner towers. You will drive through the vineyards surrounding the Abbey bought by the Antinori family, one of the big names in Chianti Classico wine production.
MONTEFIORALLE We will then head to Montefioralle. This hamlet is probably one of the most ancient in Chianti and still enclosed within its original walls. During the Middle Ages it was one of the largest military and administrative centers of the area. Montefioralle was also the birth place of explorer Amerigo Vespucci.
GREVE IN CHIANTI Our tour will continue to Greve in Chianti where we will stop in the stone pavement Piazza and have some free time to visit this cute little town, its shops and streets and blend with the locals to enjoy the real Chianti atmosphere.
Then, as an old Italian saying quotes: “Don’t continue your trip unless your mouth tastes like wine!“… let’s visit some wine estates and enjoy exclusive wine cellar tours with tastings!
You will then make your way back to Florence
