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.

We really enjoyed our nighttime walk around Florence with Giorno. We had lots of fun, saw lots of sites, and enjoyed trying a few new wines.

Tour 4 but food and wine -3. Interesting to learn about the Medici family and history of Florence while walking across the Ponte tour Vecchio to a sit down and tasting of 3 wines and some bruschetta. Group gets to know each other a bit so you feel not so alone in a new city. Back Over the bridge to another singl wine tasting and ending near the Duomo. 10 people. Informative regarding history and wine tasting in general. Fairly low end wines and 2 kinds of bruschetta. Do not expect this to replace your dinner.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sara, was a local winemaker from many generations back and this personal connection made the tour that much more memorable. Loved Sara's dry humor, it added to the outrageous historical stories of the families who inhabited and built Florence. We learned about Chianti wines and the varietal differences that we've already used back home when ordering in restaurants! This is a very low key walking tour but it's perfect for that reason. Small group was key, and also a very gracious and interesting host!

Totally recommend for your first night in town!

Learned of some local hidden gems, history of Italian wine along with some history lessons along the way. What more do you need? The length of the event was perfect and recommend to anyone visiting Florence!

Our guide was great at pointing out restaurants that she enjoys along the way, so we were able to build a list of places to try. Most of the tour was of the Oltrarno area, which was great. I wish we could find more tours of this area. Throughout the tour, we were able to try several different red and white wines. There was also food included with each of the stops, so we were able to try several local delicacies with the wine. I definitely felt a little tipsy by the end of the tour, so if you aren't a heavy drinker, you'll want to make sure that you have something on your stomach. I absolutely recommend this tour for trying local wines and learning more about Chianti and the wine-making process. I would also encourage you to ask for restaurant recommendations from your guide. We tried several places that our guide recommended and all of them were tasty and cheap!.

Lots of fun. Easy to find the meeting point and a great way to find out some interesting facts around parts of the city you may not visit. It was also nice to meet with other travellers from all over the world and enjoy a few drinks. It was great fun. Harry and Kerry Williams

This tour was a good way to see and learn about different parts of the city. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! The wine was good, although we did not get to try food at the first place as it was too busy due to a Liberation Day celebration. The second place we stopped was awesome. The food and wine were great there! Overall, a really good experience that we recommend for a fun evening out!
