Half-day walking tour from Florence to a 17th-century Tuscan villa
See Florence from some of its best viewpoints, such as Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte
Walk into the Tuscan countryside to visit a beautiful villa
Tour the villa gardens and wine cellar
On the morning it was just me and my girlfriend who went on the tour - and this made for a really personal experience with our excellent host.
The walk was a good 5km mostly uphill - although not too strenuous and it was a nice bit of exercise. Views from the Piazzale Michelangelo were breathtaking, and the fact that our host knew about the history of each place we visited was a great touch. I especially enjoyed some of the views of the Tuscan hills, and the typical remote villages around.
The wine and food was welcomed after our walk - and the snacks provide all you can eat. The wine was genuinely delicious - it was made in the very villa were the wine tasting takes place. We had one white, two reds and a sweet, with the option of topping up as you please. The wines were so good we bought some on the way out.
The host really made the trip by being knowledgeable, helpful, patient waiting while we stuffed our faces! and really friendly.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone - although beware that it may be an imposing walk for some!
