Description

Discover Chianti, a region of Tuscany famous for its wine production and beautiful Italian landscapes.

This bus trip will take you to the heart of Chianti to discover the impressive countryside and villages hidden among the hills.

You will have the opportunity to visit a castle and its gardens, before enjoying a wine tasting session accompanied by samples of local culinary specialities.

The excursion will then continue to Greve in Chianti where you will visit the marketplace with its old shopping arcades and local produce.

Your bus will then make its way along the "Via Chiantigiana", which winds through the hills, vinyards and villages of Tuscany, to reach a family-run wine estate. Here, you will be taken on a tour by the owner before tasting four of the different wines produced on-site alongside some typical regional snacks.

The next stop will be Castellina, a picturesque hilltop village surrounded by olive groves and vinyards, before heading onto San Donato in Poggio.

In this 11th-century village you'll be able to admire the medieval ramparts and Renaissance buildings. To finish the day, you'll ave the chance to taste some more Tuscan specialities and Chianti wine during a traditional dinner in a local restaurant, before returning to Florence.

  • Nous n'étions que 2 français donc le tour nous a été proposé en anglais, or avec notre médiocre anglais nous étions plutôt déçus. Cependant notre guide, qui était très gentille et attentionnée nous a donné toutes les explications nécessaires en français. Grâce à elle et à cette très belle région de Toscane, nous avons passé une excellente journée!
