Duration: 12 hours
Tuscany Wine Tours
Your English speaking driver-guide will meet you at your hotel at 7.30am to leave for your private day excursion driving through Lazio, Umbria and the Tuscan country side. You will proceed directly to the Chianti wine region which lies between the major cities of Florence and Siena, bordered on the east by the Chianti mountains and on the west by the Elsa river.
Chianti Wine Region
The Chianti wine region boasts delightful vistas framing the vine covered rolling hills and ever present cypresses, along with an unhurried pace of life and picturesque villages. In the morning you will visit a celebrated vineyard to enjoy a full wine tasting that will include a tour of the vineyard as well as tasting several different types of local wine (not included in the price of the tour).
For lunch your driver-guide can suggest some local restaurants where you can taste the local cuisine accompanied by local wines and he can help you plan the rest of your days activities.
You could enjoy a scenic drive through the countryside that boasts numerous ancient villages, churches and abbeys, castles and fortresses, farmhouses and villas. A short stop to Monteriggioni will be worthy to see this fascinating walled little village where only 10-20 people reside. At the end of the tour you will drive back to Rome, about 3 hours, to be dropped off at your Hotel.
