What You Can Expect

Sunset Siena and Chianti Wine Tour with Dinner from Florence

Enjoy your time in the Chiani region!

Board your coach at Santa Maria Novella Station in central Florence, and travel out of the city and into the lush Tuscan countryside. Sit back and relax with views of rolling green hills and olive groves, and then stop in the city of Siena to enjoy roughly 2.5 hours at leisure.

Use your free time to stroll around Piazza del Campo, the square considered the beating heart of the city, and admire its elegant Gothic buildings basking in the sunset glow. You can pay a visit to Siena Duomo, one of the most famous Gothic cathedrals in Italy, and admire the frescoes that embellish its interior.

After seeing the sunset over Siena, return to your coach and travel into the Chianti winemaking region of Tuscany to visit one of its esteemed wine estates at a Tuscan farm. Tour the cellars, seeing where the legendary ruby-red wine is bottled and matured, and learn about the aging process that lends itself to the wine’s velvety taste.

After exploring the estate, it’s time to enjoy the wine itself! Take a seat at your table outside (if the weather is good) or inside the main farmhouse. Savor a 4-course meal (see Sample Menu below) with up to four glasses of the estate's wine. Your tour leader points out the different characteristics of the wine as you sip and swirl.

Chat about the Tuscan specialties with fellow food lovers in your group over the course of your meal. Afterward, return to your coach and end your evening with a drop-off at Piazza Adua in central Florence.

Sample Menu:
First course:
  • Tuscan salami or local cheese crostini
Second course (choice of one):
  • Lasagne
  • Crespelle (Italian crepes)
Third course (choice of one; each served with grilled vegetables):
  • Arista (saddle of succulent pork)
  • Brasato (beef braised in red wine)
  • Peposo (peppered Tuscan beef stew)
Dessert (choice of one):
  • Tiramisu
  • Cantuccini (almond cookies)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

We had a really great time on our tour. Our guide was amazing. She spoke several languages which was very impressive, but you could tell that she was clearly passionate about the area. The dinner was beautiful and so was the scenery. We'd definitely recommend this tour - you won't regret it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

An excellent guide and tour.Because our group was fifty people it was too large to move swiftly and it meant along time serving dinner. There was no dessert, only biscotti which was a disappointment considering the cost.We arrived back in Florence after eleven PM.The driver of the bus was excellent in tight roads on the way to Chianti Country and exiting the vineyard.A very pleasant evening but the size of the group was too many.
