DESCRIPTION:

Your chauffeur and guide will come pick you up in an air conditioned Mercedes sedan or limo minivan from the port of La Spezia. We recommend that you be ready on time so you can leave and come back early.

The driver will then take you through the scenic countryside of Tuscany for 1hr 40mins on your first leg of the tour until you get to Florence. In Florence, you will see the David by Michelangelo in the Accademia Museum (it’s better to book this ahead of the tour itself so you dont end up joining the queue). The same applies to visiting the Uffizi Gallery to see the paintings and artworks of Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Rafaello.

You will also see the Piazza della Signoria and its towering palazzi –the Marble Duomo and Baptistery which has the bronze gates nicknamed the “Gates of Paradise”, Basilica of Santa Croce, Giotto’s Bell, and Santa Maria del Fiore, as well as take a walk across the Ponte Vecchio bridge.

After this tour, you can get some lunch, and then head out to the Chianti area. This part of the tour is often described as unforgettable and amazing by many. Here, you will learn the processes involved in winemaking, visit multiple vineyards and wine cellars, taste as much as a hundred different wines, grappa, vin santo as well as virgin olive oils, and get fully immersed in the Tuscan experience.

Please Note: All wine tasting and events will be paid for by the clients. This is not included in the tour fee.
