Description

Hop aboard your air-conditioned coach in central Florence and settle in for the 40-minute drive through the Tuscan countryside to begin your tour. On route, listen as your guide shares details of the Chianti region’s rich history and heritage, and gain insight into the many wines for which the area is famous.

Take in stunning views of the Italian countryside as you drive past olive groves, cypress trees, and vineyards bursting with juicy grapes before arriving near the Tuscan town of Greve. Head first to the wine estate and enjoy a guided tour of the ancient cellars where barrels of Chianti Classico lie slowly maturing.

Afterward, follow a wonderful hilly route in your bus along the "Via Chiantigiana." Reach a family-run winery where you'll visit the cellars and the barrique room and taste four excellent limited-production Chianti wines, as well as local products.

Head into Greve, and soak up the atmosphere in the town’s Medieval square. Admire the traditional architecture and charming shops selling regional produce, and enjoy a little free time to explore at your leisure.

Continue on to Castellina in Chianti, an ancient hamlet set high on a hillside between rolling vineyards and olive groves. Take in beautiful views out over the rolling vineyards below and enjoy free time to wander at your leisure.

Travel on to San Donato in Poggio — an ancient village nestled in the rolling Tuscan hills — and sit down to your evening meal in a local tavern. Enjoy regional specialities perfectly complemented by excellent Chianti wine, and experience first-hand a traditional dining experience for which the Italians are famous. (Dinner will be held in the open, weather permitting, so do bring suitable clothing.) Upgrade to enjoy a delicious bistecca alla Fiorentina — a rich, flavorsome Florentine T-bone steak simply dressed with olive oil, rosemary and salt, and widely considered to be the most famous Tuscan meat dish of all!

When it’s time to leave San Donato in Poggio behind, hop back aboard your coach for the 40-minute drive back to Florence where your tour will come to an end.
