A Chianti Tour through the delicious tastes of this astonishing, characteristic, quintessential piece of Tuscany, just south of Florence in the Chianti Classico Wine district. For this exclusive tour, away from the crowds, a car or minivan allows us to better explore the Chianti region through narrow and lesser-known country roads, impossible to reach by bus. Visit to a small family run winery is included to see the cellars and taste wine and local specialties.
Once outside of the city you immediately find yourself immersed in a hilly landscape of vineyards, olive groves, old stone farmhouses and medieval castles.
The magnificent Tuscan cypress trees line the country roads leading to old farm estates and medieval fortifications, many of which are now farmhouse holiday apartments!
Once rural and isolated, the Chianti area has now become one of the most requested and picturesque landscapes in Tuscany, the ideal place to escape to and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Stroll through a little fortified village whose thirteenth century walls are still intact and then visit the central piazza of one of the most thriving centers of the Chianti Wine District.
And obviously stop at a small family run winery to visit the cellars and taste wine!
