What to expect

Live your Italian fairytale in the world-renowned Chianti countryside! Visit two wine estates and a medieval village together with a small group of like-minded travelers and an experienced tour leader, who will be happy to answer all your questions and make sure you enjoy an unforgettable morning.

The short journey from Florence to the Chianti area is peaceful and filled with breathtaking landscapes. This region is the essence of Tuscan beauty: here you can find gently rolling hills, elegant villas, medieval towns, olive groves, cypress trees, and endless vineyards at every turn!

Once arrived, you will learn the secrets and recipes of the production of the famous Chianti wine by visiting two family-owned wineries. Explore the wine estates, snap pictures, and simply take in the incredible scenery. After a walk through the vineyards, you will taste some excellent wines paired with delicious cold cuts, local cheeses, bruschettas and fresh olive oil.

You'll then head to Greve in Chianti, the so-called "Gateway to Chianti". This small village is most famous for its main piazza, which is known for its unique, triangular shape and picturesque architecture. Here you will have some free time to stroll through the artisanal shops, grab some souvenirs, or even sample some more wine at one of the town's enotecas.
