Visit Chianti from Florence and enjoy the most authentic and fascinating side of Tuscany on a day-trip... You will delight your senses and admire some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world with a new wine tour in Chianti. An afternoon to discover one of the most famous wine areas of Italy, leaving from Florence, conveniently travelling by bus with a guide.

The beautiful Chianti Hills are a small mountain range located between the provinces of Siena and Florence, although the territorial boundaries of the area are not clearly defined and follow those of the homonymous wine area formed in 1932.

Rolling hills, often lined with countless rows of vineyards and olive groves, picturesque villages, small churches and large farmhouses ... This, in a nutshell, is Chianti: an area known and appreciated all over the world, a succession of postcard landscapes that cannot be missed during a visit to Tuscany

The municipalities included in the Chianti region are part of the production area of the eponymous DOCG wine red. After the creation and success of the wine area, many of these towns have added the words "in Chianti" to their name, an example is the town of Greve, now Greve in Chianti, which we will visit during our Chianti wine tour from Florence.

During our Chianti tour from Florence, you will discover the authentic flavours of Tuscan traditions by tasting the most famous specialties of the area in two Chianti wineries to visit.

Our Chianti tour starts in Florence - the meeting point is set in Piazza Adua, a short walk from the train station (Santa Maria Novella) - and includes the transfer by bus and guide for the duration of the tour. Our Chianti wine tasting tour includes a visit of two wineries, tastings and a stop in Greve in Chianti.

The first part of this original Chianti day trip from Florence includes a visit to a winery, during which you will be explained the various stages of production and storage of the wine, and wine tasting in Chianti: Chianti and Tuscan products, like 'Chianti Classico', 'Chianti Riserva ', extra virgin olive oil and salami.

After the tasting, our Chianti day trip will continue to the charming town of Greve in Chianti, one of the most known villages of the Chianti area. Here you will have time to visit the centre freely and maybe buy some typical products in the many shops.

Situated along the Via Chiantigiana, connecting Florence to Siena through the picturesque area of Chianti, Greve in Chianti is a charming medieval village. Thanks to its favourable location, in the past it has played a leading role as a market area. Today Greve in Chianti is one of the places and Chianti wine tours not to be missed, a unique opportunity to combine taste, history and tradition! The main square is very characteristic, with its characteristic triangular shape and arches, on which the parish church dedicated to the Holy Cross stands.

After the visit of Greve in Chianti, our Chianti trip from Florence continues along the picturesque streets of the Chianti area to reach the second winery, which serves other Tuscan specialties, including wines, such as 'Chanti DOCG', the 'Chianti rosé' and the typical Tuscan salami, admiring breathtaking scenery.

The return to Florence will take place late afternoon.

Typical products, fabulous landscapes and ancient traditions in one of the best Chianti tours from Florence. Unforgettable routes, to capture the authentic flavours of the Tuscan tradition.
