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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Host was very good dinner on the farm was superb one of the best things we did

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

We enjoyed this tour so much. Stefano, our guide, made the experience a memorable one - his knowledge of wines was excellent, the food was delicious and the setting was lovely. My only suggestion is an earlier starting time from Florence so the views of San Gimignano can be appreciated and perhaps the tour of Florence could be at the beginning of the tour as it is quite a late finish. Definitely recommended for lovers of good wine and food.
