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!

Your wine and dine experience will begin in central Florence, as you join up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Leave the bustling city streets behind and watch the landscape change to the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside.

Arrive at a beautiful estate in the hills, where you’ll head outside and enjoy a refreshing aperitivo. Settle in with a glass of sparkling prosecco or a traditional Florentine cocktail. As you sip, admire the views over the hills, savor a buffet of Tuscan appetizers and chat with your fellow diners.

Weather permitting, enjoy a meal al fresco on the garden terrace. Made from fresh, local ingredients, your 4-course meal is paired with three Tuscan wines, all carefully selected to pair with the menu. (See a sample menu in the Itinerary section below.)

After dessert and some time to digest among the beautiful scenery, soak up a sightseeing tour on your return to Florence. Pass the iconic Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio and other architectural gems. Your evening will finish with drop-off at the Ponte Vecchio.

Awesome! Excellent 4-course meal, paired with good Tuscan wines, shared with a small fun group ... we couldn't have asked for more. Our hosts Stephano and Isaac made the evening memorable. From Stephano's sommelier expertise and explaining the need for seasoning the wine glasses, to Isaac's culinary mastery and amazing verbena aperitif, and making new friends in the process, the evening was great fun. The nighttime tour of the lights of Florence was a nice finish.

The BEST steak I ever tasted - from someone who does not like steak, that is saying a lot! I highly recommend this to anyone who would like to savor authentic Florentine cuisine. Stefano was a great guide with a delicate sense of humor. Truly enjoyed every savory moment.

Terrific! The trip starts with a bus ride to the hills overlooking Florence. When arriving at the end of the road passible by the bus we walk to a beautiful villa.One recommendation, take a flash light of use the light on your smart phone. The walk is dark We were in late October and the walkway is uneven. Arriving we were greeted with drinks and appetizers. The main course was a delicious thick, huge steak that is shared by four people. It was more than ample. The wine was very good and flowed freely. We had an international group that added variety and interesting conversation. Highly recommended!
