Wine-tasting, scenic drives through magnificent Tuscan landscapes and a traditional dinner in Chanti - is there a better way to spend the afternoon in Tuscany? The Tuscan region of Chianti is universally acclaimed for its classic wines and natural beauty. You'll discover a magical world of woods alternating with vines and olive trees, Romanesque churches, medieval farmhouses, Renaissance villas and castles. End your day with a Tuscan dinner, and if you're feeling extra hungry -- upgrade and enjoy a Florentine steak!

Highlights

  • Free drinks included
  • Dinner included
  • Excellent value for money
On your afternoon tour you'll visit an ancient Tuscan town and one of Chianti's most renowned castle-farm wine-growing estates. Here, you'll receive insights into the local wine-growing traditions and sample three prestigious wines: Chianti Classico, Chianti Reserve and white wine. The wines are accompanied by local traditional snacks.

You will end the day with a traditional Tuscan dinner (accompanied by excellent Chianti wine) in the magical atmosphere of an old village among the Tuscan hills. Dinner will be held in the open (weather permitting), so please wear suitable clothing. If you're keen to enjoy the most famous Tuscan meat dish of all, then upgrade and enjoy Bistecca alla Fiorentina! This T-Bone Florentine steak is rich, flavorsome, and always served rare, simply dressed with little more than olive oil, rosemary and salt.

The tours are carried out in different areas of the Chianti region, and the trip from Florence to Chianti is approximately 40 minutes each way.

This tour was by far 1 of my top favorites if not thee favorite! Great way to see Tuscany. Chianti was fabulous with great wine tasting along with cheese, bread, olive oil and jam tastings. Afterward I can pretty much say we all bought multiple items to take home (airlines usually allow 2 bottles of wine per suitcase or they give you the option to ship items home too). We stopped along the way in great little quaint towns where we had additional time to shop, take pictures and drink more wine. Lastly, we finished off at a cute cottage like tuscany restaurant where we drank more wonderful wine and plenty of food to go around. Overall we were very pleased with this tour. I will note that the roads are very windy so keep in mind if you might get bus sick. Also bring mosquito spray!

A thoroughly enjoyed half day tour that I would gladly do again. We visited a beautiful winery where we were welcomed by a lovely lady that showed us their property which was once a castle, created into a farmhouse. A very knowledgable guide who informed us everything about wine. Then we sat down and enjoyed 3 different wines with a selection of cured meats, cheeses and breads. It was a really good idea to put each wine with a selected piece of food in order to appreciate both things more. Everyone was so impressed, that each person bought something at the winery! We travelled to Greve and Castellina, spending 40 minutes in each Chianti village for free time, before arriving to a small town for our 3 course meal. The food did not disappoint, each meal was delicious and impressive. The two pasta dishes were amazing, and the main course included multiple side dishes too. Dessert was a yummy tiramisu. Would definetely reccommend this tour for anyone wanting to spend time in the Chianti region and learn about the delicious wines. Thank you Viator and CAF tours for organising a great tour!
