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.

Julian and Isak were absolutely the best. We ended up having a very small group (4) and they made such an impression on us. The views of Florence were amazing and the food was out of this world. This tour is worth every penny, and may be one of the best deals on viator. A must do!

This is truly our most favorite experience of our trip to Italy. From the warm welcome of Angel our guide to the wonderful chef that prepared our delicious meal, it was a night to remember! The estate was nestled in the beautiful hills of Tuscany with spectacular views of the countryside. We had a small group of 6 couples that clicked right from the start making it a very fun experience. The Wine and Dine is one tour that can't be passed over! Incredible views, beautiful surroundings, a table set so pretty, a personal chef explaining new foods accompanied with wine pairing and just an AWESOME dining experience! This is a must!

Absolutely amazing! The best time I had in Italy. I felt as though I was at dinner with a handful of friends and a private chef. Stunning location, delicious food and wine and an extremely gracious, knowledgeable and friendly host - Stefano. I wish I could do it again. My husband and I were looking for a short tour, but wished this one was longer. Magical!

Our wine and dine excursion with Walkabout Florence was truly wonderful. My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful night tour of Florence it is gorgeous at night, followed by a sumptuos, gourmet dinner at a beautiful Italian estate. Our guide, Stefano, is the ideal host professional, personable, and funny. Our chef, Isaac, could cook at any 5 star restaurant. You can be sure the next time we are in Florence, my wife and I will spend another wonderful evening wining and dining in the Tuscan countryside with Stefano and Isaac!
