• Chianti tour and visit to San Gimignano

    Medieval towns, gentle hills, Chianti wines and Tuscan food

Chianti & San Gimignano full-day tour from Florence


During the private transfer from downtown Florence through the gentle Chianti hills, you will have the opportunity to stop and visit the fortified castle of Montefioralle and to take pictures of the beautiful landscape carpeted with vineyards and olive groves.

After a stop in the heart of Chianti at Greve, hometown to Giovanni Da Verrazzano, your English-speaking guide will drive you to one of the oldest-established wine estates in our hills for a luxury lunch and wine tasting, with the opportunity of buying wines and gourmet products from the farm, which the owners will be pleased to ship to your home address if required.

Our next destination is charming San Gimignano, known as the 'town of the fine towers' or 'the New York of the Middle Ages', for a fascinating plunge into a still tangible Medieval Tuscany.

This tour also offers the opportunity to add an additional unique wine tasting in a different stylish local farm or tasty dinner of juicy Florentine steak and fine Chianti wine at one of the most renowned Tuscan trattorias on the way back to Florence. Full roundtrip transportation is provided.
