What You Can Expect

Sunset Siena and Chianti Wine Tour with Dinner from Florence

Enjoy your time in the Chiani region!

Your evening excursion will begin at Florence’s Santa Maria Novella Station. Join your guide aboard a comfortable coach and start your journey through the olive groves and green hills of the Tuscan countryside.

Arrive in Siena and enjoy 2.5 hours to explore independently, checking out the central Piazza del Campo or the Duomo, a stunning Gothic cathedral with interior frescoes and alternating stripes of white and black marble.

After watching the sunset, hop back in your coach and head to the region of Chianti, made famous by its ruby-red wine. There, you’ll visit one of the area’s prominent wine estates, set amidst a Tuscan farm. Take a guided tour of the cellars and learn about the production and aging process that gives the Chianti blends a world-class flavor.

Then settle into a table in the main farmhouse or, weather permitting, outdoors for a 4-course meal (sample menu can be found below). Pair your dinner with up to four glasses of the estate’s wine, learning about the characteristics of each from your guide as you sip.

After your evening of wining, dining and sightseeing concludes, you will be returned to central Florence in your coach.

Angelo was an excellent guide.

There were only 6 people on this tour and it was very good. Siena was a gem and the church was fabulous. Make sure you check out the small library as this is nothing short of amazing. You do waste a bit of time purchasing the entry ticket. The trip through Chianti is great and the guide arranged with the driver to stop for us to take some photos. The meal at the winery was good, local and rustic and matched the wines. The short winery tour was informative with the wine maker being a wonderful talker of his local product. Our guide, Antonio, was excellent. He had extensive knowledge and kept us informed throughout the trip.

I recommend this tour for red wine lovers. The Tour guide was extremely sweet and knowledgeable on our journey to Siena . The vineyard dinner was a highlight of the trip.

Fantastic scenery, Siena is wonderful and the vineyard and meal were superb. It is a wine tasting meal and not a wine drinking trip so do not expect large glasses of wine, but the meal and staff cannot be faulted.
Food was delicious as was the wine, a fantastic trip but be careful, some of the roads are a little tight and bumpy so if easily car / bus sick then be prepared.

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!

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.

AMAZING!!! The trip to the farm was the highlight of our trip to Florence--Carlo's passion was palatable and shined through in his food and wine. This trip is well worth the cost and I highly, highly recommend it!
