Tuscany is renowned for its glorious views, eminently drinkable wines, and the simplicity of its mouth-watering cuisine. Today’s full-day tour takes in the famous Chianti area, often considered the most beautiful in the region. Its rich panorama comprises rolling hills and hilltop towns, many encircled by Etruscan walls and slender cypress trees. See charming hamlets and farmhouses, as well as fortified villas and castles dating from the Middle Ages. Heading northwards towards Florence, enjoy a leisurely espresso or gelato in the historic main square of Greve, considered the principal town in Chianti. In the afternoon, journey to the hilltop town of Castellina, whose noble origins date back to the 13th century. Here you have time to soak up the lively atmosphere as you wander through its charming streets. During your tour, sample the exceptional Chianti Classico wines at two different estates – the outstanding Monterinaldi and Castelvecchi wineries (subject to availability).
