Activity details

PICK UP TIME Suggested 8:00am to avoid big crowds at least in the first part of the morning (it is flexible then you decide when). Back to the port at 5:00pm (with plenty of time not to miss the ship)

TUSCANY COUNTRYSIDE A lot of people have been in many areas of Tuscany and that is why we leave it up to you. See the Tuscany Countryside is very extended and spread out. So you might have an idea about the area you want to get focused on that can be made by a particular town or more than one! Just tell us and we will work it out for you!

WINE TASTING TIME The beauty of this tour is that you guys can decide which kind of winery to go for! That is why I don’t put down here a specific one. You can go from the most spectacular Castello Banfi to little ones on the side of the streets in the same towns. Really up to you! You’ll agree it via e-mail with us before setting the tour up.

Back to the ship by 05.00 pm

NOTE: On your wine tasting, you will be sampling a variety of wines offered in appropriate wine glasses, in a nice atmosphere, often in a typical wine cellar, accompanied by the relevant explanations of your wine expert. On these wine tasting sections there will NOT be the possibility of strolling through the vineyards, unless specified in your booking. Only certain venues have access to the fields, but often the owners do NOT allow the visitors in. When possible and only during the harvest season, end of September to the beginning of November, it will be up to the landlord. We do NOT grant any visit to the vineyards to our clients.
