Chianti day tour
What comes into your mind when you hear the word “Chianti”? Probably you will picture yourself with a glass of Chianti Classico looking at hilly landscapes while the chef of a unique restaurant is cooking some local specialties for you… The sun is pampering your face with its soft light, the birds are singing and this fantastic atmosphere fills you hearts with joy. This is what we would like to offer you on your Chianti day tour.
What is Chianti?
Chianti is a breathtaking valley of unique appearance, situated between two great cities and ancient rivals: Florence and Siena. The area is world famous for the inexpressible beauty of its landscapes and of course for its wine production. The overall territory here is covered for about 7000 hectares with vineyards, manicured by over 450 wineries.
This is the land of Chianti Classico, one of the top-quality labels available on the international wine market. Its sophisticated taste will turn any dinner into a feast.
Your tour will begin from the moment when your English-speaking chauffeur or guide opens the door of a latest Mercedes model, and starts driving you to the stunning views of the countryside on the way to a spectacular castle or a medieval hill town as per the customized itinerary we designed for you.
There are many quaint villages which appearance hasn’t changed over the centuries. Visiting them is like travelling back in time to the epoch of fearless knights who fought their enemies, but also saved beautiful princesses imprisoned in towers!
When appetite will rise we will take you to one of the top restaurants or local trattoria with a panoramic view, local cuisine and hospitable owner, where the traditional food is paired with the right Chianti to make you feel like heaven.
Food and wine tasting
For foodies and gourmets, tasting opportunities are endless: from mouthwatering salamis directly at the producer, to a large variety of cheeses from the fresh and creamy types to the rich and aged ones at a dairy farm or authentic food store.
Wines of different ages can be tasted at exclusive boutique wineries or internationally renowned ones; or to enjoy an even broader array of labels we can stop at specialized enotecas. We promise that this gastronomic day will become a memorable Italian experience.
Before you end your tour, just stop and give a look at the Chianti hills on the sunset; there is a halo of mystery in these landscapes… time will pass, but your memories will bring you back to this land every time you hear the word “Chianti”.
