What You Can Expect
At the Medieval castle of Montefioralle, stroll around this enchanting castle and admire the breathtaking scenery with incredible vistas of the Chianti, and appreciate the slower pace of life that hasn't changed for centuries as you stroll around the streets of this enchanting hill town.
At Greve in Chianti, the principal town of the Chianti, you'll have some free time to explore this friendly market town (Market Day is Saturday) with the opportunity to do an optional wine tasting or olive oil tasting while in the town. Before lunch, you will visit a local vineyard to learn more about the wine-making in the Chianti and to enjoy your first wine tasting of the day. You'll enjoy an optional lunch at a delightful Trattoria (not included) with undisturbed panoramic views and delicious regional cuisine.
In the afternoon, continue your tour of the Chianti visiting Medieval hill towns and their fortresses that once formed the league of Chianti in the 13th-century where you'll enjoy more incredible views of the countryside.
To celebrate your day trip of the Chianti wine region you will visit another noted vineyard for your second wine tasting. And while sitting back savoring the subtle textures and tones of the wine, contemplate the beautiful countryside that has been your constant companion during the day.
Fantastic tour. The scenery was amazing and the wineries and towns we visited were just perfect. The van was very comfortable for the drive and the length of the tour was just right. Our guide Fabrizio (forgive me if I've spelled his name wrong) was the best. He went out of his way to pick up other people on the tour who were late, took us to a few spots that weren't necessarily part of the tour (like stopping on the hill above Florence for pics, etc). One of the people on the tour left her phone behind at a previous stop, and Fabrizio called back, arranged to have someone he knew look for it and then got it back later in the day and was going to deliver it to the hotel of the person who lost it. Top notch service for sure.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. We had a wonderful day learning about the Chianti region. What a great experience.
