FULL DESCRIPTION

Visit Florence’s top sights, and enjoy a countryside tour in the world-famous Chianti Classico Region for wine-tasting. Generally, we start the tour with pick-up in Livorno port, right on the quayside, so you will find us immediately as you get off the ship. You will set off on a journey by fully-equipped car, and with an English-speaking driver. Once in Florence, the tour starts from Piazza San Marco. Here you visit the peaceful and beautifully maintained old Dominican monastery, one of the most delightful museums in Florence, with important frescoes and paintings by Fra’ Angelico. Then you can take a stroll to the famous San Lorenzo market, and stop for an outside view of the Medici Palace. A few steps more and you reach the Duomo and Baptistery, the religious center of the city, and Piazza della Signoria, the political center. Between the two, you could stop off for a nice espresso in one of Florence’s historic cafés. From here you can walk to the medieval district of Florence and the “Ponte Vecchio”, also known as the “Golden Bridge” due to its numerous, historic jewelry stores. Afterward, you drive to the Chianti region, passing through breathtaking countryside and pretty hilltop towns. Here you stop for a typical Tuscan lunch in a medieval village. We continue to a family-run winery, where a passion for wine-making has been handed down from father to son for generations. Today, that passion is combined with modern technology to meet the highest standards. Here you will taste a selection of white, red, Super Tuscan and Vin Santo wines, with a full explanation of how wine is made, and how it is connected to local food and culture. From here we head back to Livorno. During the tour we will stop off for a typical Tuscan lunch.
