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).
9.15am - 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.
Mid-morning will have us arriving at our winery where we proceed with a guided tour of the cellars. We follow with a sit down tasting of 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.
Around mid day we'll have a tasty light lunch in a local Chianti restaurant.
The early afternoon we visit the piazza of the tiny but charming town of Greve in Chianti. You might like to stroll the arched 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 then continue our scenic rive of the Tuscan landscapes and head towrds Siena where we arrive after about an hour at approx 04:30pm.
