What You'll Do

Explore the beautiful Chianti wine region on this half-day scenic tour of the Tuscan countryside. Enjoy the stunning views and taste some amazing wine and other typical products of the area.

On this tour, you will be able to immerse yourself in the picturesque Tuscan scenery as you tour round this beautiful part of Italy. First you will visit Castellina, a small commune in the Chianti region known for its stunning architecture and breath taking views of the rolling Italian countryside.

Then you will be able to enjoy a wine tasting at a locally owned winery in the Chianti area. The beautiful ruby-red colour and the characteristic bcents of violet are the special features that reveal the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world, Chianti. This wine results from the blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to make this absolutely divine red wine.

You will also get a chance to learn about the history and culture of the Chianti region on this tour. Visit ancient churches, medieval castles and small villages all with keys and stories to unlock the mysteries of the past.

Later on, you visit another winery in the middle of the Chianti Classico area, where you will have a wine tasting alongside an olive oil tasting. Then take a stroll down the avenues of the winery and take in the views before heading back after an eventful day.
