Shore excursions in Italy ,Daily Tours and guided Limousine services.
We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

  • Notes

Start your small group day trip meeting the other participants in Florence. Driving to the south direction, along one of the most scenic wine roads in the world that winds between olive groves and vineyards, you will reach Greve in Chianti, the most representative village of the Chianti Classico countryside, birthplace of the famous Tuscan explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, the man who discovered the New York Harbor.

Here, you will have some free time to admire the attractive main square and do some shopping at its famed local shops housed under graceful porticoes.

Following the main wine road and driving through idyllic sceneries, you will reach a selected hilltop winery, where a wine expert is waiting for you to share his knowledge and passion about wine with all of the facts and anecdotes behind this product, so important for the region.

Start an informative guided tour of the old wine cellars where you will learn all of the secrets to make a very good and genuine wine; for those very interested in, this is the perfect chance to satisfy all of their curiosities. After the visit it is the right time to eat and drink to better understand the real country hospitality; you will taste assorted cold cuts, cured ham, salami, cheeses, bruschetta, pasta (usually handmade pasta), and dessert, accompanied by the winery's own excellent wines (3/4 different wines) and Vin Santo (dessert wine).

After lunch, relax and enjoy a short ride through the hills of Chianti Classico, surrounded by vineyards, olive and cypress trees, before heading to a second winery where you will visit the property and you will taste their products such as wine, olive oil etc.

The second stop represent a very good chance to have a more complete overview about the Tuscan wines, and better understand the difference between the products and the philosophy of two wine makers of this area. You will be back in Florence in the afternoon.
Vegetarian menu can be catered for, upon specific request at time of booking
Please note that this is not a private tour and it departs from here.
