What You Can Expect

Wine and Dine in the Tuscan Countryside Including a Night Tour of Florence

Admire magical Florence by night on your evening tour!

Meet your guide near the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence and board your air-conditioned minivan. Admire the idyllic Tuscan landscape as you travel to a gorgeous country estate in the hills outside the city.

Here, head outside and enjoy a refreshing aperitivo as you settle in and chat with your fellow diners. Choose a glass of sparkling prosecco (Italian sparkling white wine) or an exotic cocktail such as a negroni (Campari, gin and sweet vermouth) or trendy Aperol spritz (Aperol, prosecco and gin with soda water). As you sip, enjoy the views over Tuscany’s rolling hills and nibble on a delectable buffet of Tuscan appetizers.

If weather permits, take a seat at the gorgeous garden terrace for your 4-course meal made from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Your delectable dinner is paired with three different Tuscan wines — think Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino — each handpicked for the occasion. As you savor each course, note the subtle flavors of the accompanying wine, perhaps discussing with your small group how it harmonizes with a dish. See the Itinerary below for a sample menu.

After dessert, linger to soak up the surroundings, surely heightened by the flowing wine and light background music.

On your return to Florence, enjoy a sightseeing tour of this exquisite city's brilliantly illuminated monuments. Sit back and admire the dazzling Piazzale Michelangelo, Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and other landmarks — the perfect finale to your evening.

Your tour concludes with a drop-off at the Ponte Vecchio in the late evening.

This dinner tour was just fabulous! The quality of the food at the villa far exceeded our expectations. The chef discussed each course and the paired wines with us before we ate. Our guide, Angel, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were also pleased that the villa was only a 15 minute ride outside of the city.

What a lovely experience this was! Our group of four joined a larger group of fellow travelers from all over the world, and we were taken by bus to the nearby hills of Florence maybe a 20 minute drive. Our guide, Angel, was great. He was funny and lively, very accommodating and sweet! Everything was as described in the tour's description. The aperitifs and the food were scrumptious. Especially delicious were the aperitifs, chicken pâté served warm, and the steak dinner. We learned about Italian wines from the Tuscan region and tried three also very good. The locale was beautiful, not a house but more like a private, outdoor restaurant on a farm. The grounds were lovely and had beautiful vistas. I recommend this excursion without reservations. After a long day of sightseeing in crowds of people, it was the ideal way to experience another aspect of Florence in a idyllic setting.

Excellent evening. Gracious and enthusiastic hosts who were very accommodating and went out of their way to drive a guest directly to the location and thereby avoid a steep walk. The food was excellent, the wine was excellent. Lovely fellow travellers, with great conversation. Highly recommended.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This tour was wonderful and I would highly recommend it. The only warning I would give is it went much later than they said, probably until 1am rather than 11pm. I wish we could have finished dinner a little sooner snd enjoyed the touring part more. That said, the dining experience was divine!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

what a wonderful, well organised trip : tour guide and chef amazing - lovely setting and food - delicious. Lots of wine knowledge from friendly Angel the tour guide and a lovely group of people. I think too much talking, eating and drinking wine took place so we stopped at one beautiful view point on the way home but didn't do much city touring : great experience and it was wonderful to get out of the city and crowds for a few hours as well.
