Meet your guide in central Florence to begin your Sunset Wine Tour and set out to explore the city at dusk. Admire the views from the iconic Ponte Vecchio and pose for photos by the riverside, then wind through the parks and piazzas of elegant Oltrarno. Follow your guide to landmarks like Santo Spirito church and Piazzale Michelangelo, and get a feel for Florentine life as you duck down the buzzing alleys and peek into lively cafés.
Continue to the hip San Frediano district, where the streets are lined with artisan shops, traditional taverns and wine bars, as your guide fills you in on the city’s social traditions. Then, make your first stop, for a typical ‘aperitivo’ at a local wine cellar, and sip a glass of wine as you watch the sunset over the city. As you sample Tuscan wines from the famous Chianti region, sate your appetite with a platter of delicious ‘crostini’, another Tuscan specialty.
Cross over the river to Florence’s historic center, where the streetlamps will be flickering into action and star attractions like the Duomo cathedral will be dramatically floodlit. After learning more about the Renaissance city, make a second stop and toast to a fun-filled evening with another glass of wine.
