FULL DESCRIPTION

Visit Florence’s top sights and enjoy an idyllic countryside drive in the world-famous Chianti Classico region for a wine tasting. Pick-up and drop-off are in the port of Livorno at the quayside, so you will see us immediately upon disembarking. You will set off on a journey by fully equipped car and an English-speaking driver. Upon arrival in Florence, you’ll visit the religious center of the city with the majestic dome by Brunelleschi and the Baptistery. The Duomo of Florence is one of the most magnificent examples of Romanesque architecture in Tuscany. Next, you’ll move on to Piazza della Signoria, the political center. Within the palace and loggia, original masterpieces by Giambologna and Cellini still reside. Just a short distance from the square is Ponte Vecchio, the most ancient and characteristic bridge in Florence. Your tour of the city concludes at the acclaimed Accademia museum where you’ll see the impressive statue of David by Michelangelo. Afterward, you continue onto the Chianti region, passing through breathtaking countryside and pretty hilltop towns. Here you stop for a typical Tuscan lunch in a medieval village. Next, you'll visit a family-run winery, where a passion for winemaking has been handed down 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. You'll learn all about the winemaking process and how it is linked to local food and culture. From here you return to Livorno.
