The first winery was wonderful. The second was too crowded for our large group. The town of Greve was fun, you must go to the butcher shop!
Escape the hustle and bustle of Florence and admire Tuscany’s rolling hills on this half-day tour. Don’t worry about organizing your own transportation into the countryside: Round-trip coach transit from central Florence makes getting around a breeze. Stop at two wineries for tours, tastings, and traditional snacks, and have time at your leisure to explore the medieval town of Greve in the heart of the Chianti wine region.
This afternoon tour kicks off when you meet your guide in front of the Santa Maria Novella train station in central Florence. Board a comfortable coach and leave the city behind as you head into the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside.
The region is famous for producing Chianti, and you’ll begin by visiting a rustic winery and discovering the secrets behind this classic Italian red wine. Learn more about the winemaking process, indulge in a wine tasting, and try classic Tuscan snacks like bruschetta and cheese.
Next, climb back on board your coach and head to the medieval town of Greve, located in the heart of the Chianti region. You’ll have time at your leisure to wander its piazzas or enjoy a nibble and a glass in one of its cafes (own expense).
The tour continues with a stop at a second area winery, where you’ll have the opportunity to admire the vines and olive groves, partake in additional tastings, and otherwise soak up the scenery. Finally, board your coach and return directly to Florence.
