As we travel from Florence to Siena we'll have a beautiful sightseeing tour of the fantastic Chianti landscapes and an optional wine tasting. We'll see how the Chianti Wine Region offers a rare and breathtaking example of how it's possible to cultivate land in complete harmony with nature. Wherever you cast your eyes, vineyards, olive orchards and Cyprus trees are blended into the surrounding woodland with the aesthetic taste for which Italy is famous. This sets Chianti apart from any other wine making region in the world, and a trip through the area is a feast for eye. A visit to Chianti wouldn't be complete without a taste of the region's most famous product, so along our way we'll take delightful stops for wine tasting in Tuscany, trying both Chianti and the new Super Tuscans (IGT's).
9.30am - Your Tuscany tour starts as I pick you up from your hotel and of we go for our scenic drive through Chianti. I will make stops in the most picturesque areas and give you all the time you need for photos or admiring the scenery.
Around mid-morning we arrive in the charming little town of Greve in Chianti. Here it's nice to relax with a drink and maybe do some people watching. You might also like to stroll around the arcaded sidewalks and browse the shops which specialize in inexpensive souvenirs. Greve is the hometown of Verrazzano, the first European to discover what is now the New York bay.
We leave Greve, and after a short drive, we have our wine tasting in Tuscany at one of Chianti's best known wineries. We will taste the classic wines of the area; Chianti, Chianti reserve and Super Tuscan. This winery is also known for its production of olive oil so a tasting of this is also a must.
We then proceed with our scenic tour and continue with stops to admire the landscapes. Then we head towards a fantastic little place for lunch; the castle hamlet of Volpaia or Panzano. Both are beautiful locations where you may choose anything from a sandwich to "a la carte". The atmosphere is friendly and informal, the food is great, but the pace is slow. Relax and enjoy.
Then after lunch (not included in fee) we head for your hotel where we arrive at about 4.30pm
