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 tour was amazing!

This was one of the very best value experiences ever had. Our host Stefano was very charming right from first meeting him parking Fiat 500s at the tour office behind the Palace Vecchio. He took us a short distance in to the hills above Florence for a wonderful wine and food experience. We were only a small group 8 using only 1 of the long tables in their dining area. We were introduced to the chef Isaac, who happened to be American, and were given a welcoming drink as we admired the communal farm being developed by these 2 and others. We were provided with a high quality 4 course meal with generous tastings of 3 lovely Tuscan red wines which complimented the food well. Both explained the food and wine being presented simply and clearly.
That was not all!
We returned to the minivan and were provided with a guided tour of some of Florence's highlights at night by Stefano and the driver. The wine and dine began at about 7 pm and it was heading to midnight when we finally said goodnight to Stefano. This was an extremely pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.
