Overview

Spend a day in the Tuscan countryside with this day trip from Florence to San Gimignano and the Chianti area, including a wine tasting. Enjoy a stroll in the charming town of San Gimignano before trying wine at a local farmhouse. Then, explore Greve in Chianti and visit some local food shops.
  • Day trip from Florence to San Gimignano and Chianti area
  • Visit the towns of Greve in Chianti and San Gimignano, among others
  • Tour a wine estate and enjoy a wine tasting
  • Sit down to lunch at a farm outside San Gimignano
Meet your driver in the historic heart of the city at 9:00am and depart in a comfortable vehicle for a day in the Tuscan countryside.

Travel along the winding Chiantigiana Road into the picturesque hills. The first stop is Greve in Chianti, where you'll have a brief 15-minute stop to snap some pictures and check out the town square.

Continue on to a small wine estate for a tour of the vineyards and wine cellars before sampling three of the estate's wines and olive oil. The estate produces eco-friendly Chianti and Super Tuscans, and what you taste will depend on what's available that season.

The next stop is San Gimignano, the hilltop town famous for its many towers. Enjoy a 40-minute stop to explore on your own before the tour continues on to a nearby farm not far from San Gimignano. Admire the farm's historic farmhouse, including an ancient watchtower.

Relax at the farm over a light lunch, followed by a chance to sample some of the products produced right there – as well as some other typically Tuscan goodies chosen by the guide.

Travel back to Florence at the end of the day, where you'll be returned to the place where you met your guide.

Great Day in the Tuscan Hills

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting with lunch tour. Small group of like minded people and lovely, competent guide. Quality of the two vineyards visited was exceptional. Small, boutique, family run establishments - personal service and made us feel very welcome. Would highly recommend.

Chianti Villages and Wine tasting

The trip was easy to book and the meeting place easy to find. We were met by Daniele (sorry if I have spelt your name wrong). His english was excellent and he provided a very informative "story" of the region. I am always a bit dubious about taking these type of tours but this one I would totally recommend. Our guide went out of his way to make the experience memorable and the vineyards and village we visited were contrasting|outstanding which gave us a very good understanding about the region. Totally worth the money. Great scenery, great wines, the food was Ok but more than enough.

Our guide was fabulous. He gave us an overview of Florence and the surrounding areas. He also explained what variety of grapes are grown in Tuscany.

The driver was great and knowledgeable. First stop San Gimiganano. Beautiful walled city but only had 20 minutes there which was ridiculous. Would have prefered to skip one of the other stops. You need at least 1/12-2 hours there. The 2 wine tastings were great but 1 could have been left out so more time in San Gimiganano.

Thank you for your review and the 4 star rating. We appreciate your comment as it is important to us to improve our service. Usually we give 30 to 45 minutes in San Gimignano, however if the driver stopped only 20 minutes might be the case that you were late on your schedule to go the other places where we have a reservation for the wine tastings at pre-arranged timings, therefore unfortunately being a regular tour we are not able to delay the arrival time to the farms. We will take in consideration your suggestion of dedicate a longer stop in San Gimignano that we agree with you it all worth it!

Great way to experience Wine country

We selected this tour for the size of the group and the visit to San Gimignano. We arrived at San Gimignano early in the day, beating most of the crowds. Would have been nice to have a bit longer time there, but still had time to still the town. The first winery we visited prior to them being open. Made for a quiet and wonderful tasting, our total tour group was only 6. Great way to see and taste wine country. Great driver as well!

Thank you for your 5 star rating! We are glad we met your expectations! We tend to mantain our groups small as we think that this is a unique experience and should be kept as friendly and intimite as possible and at the same time meeting some new friends to share lovely fun moments! something that with big size groups travelling by coach wouldn't be possible! If you ever come to visit our beautiful region again, we hope you will choose us again!

A fantastic day out visiting the village of San Gimignano and wine tasting at local vineyards. A wonderful group of people to enjoy the day with. Please note the wine tasted at the vineyards was great but very different to the wine we purchased which was very expensive and poor tasting and unfortunately had to be thrown out

Wonderful wine tour!!

I spend hours scouring the internet for the perfect tour for our group. If you're doing the same, stop and book this tour (unless you're looking for a super high end / exclusive wine experience). The tour was approximately 6 hours. There were 4 of us, all 30 years old (ended up being our private tour) and we went on Sunday. We visited two wineries, which is more than enough with the amount of wine they pour at each! To start, we visited the super cool town of San Gimignano. The two wineries were both in Chianti region, but were very different. The first was a larger winery that was a bit more "commercial." The second was a guy and his wife and we had an amazing private experience and home cooked meal. Don't be fooled by the title, there was nothing "light" about the lunch, or amount of food that was provided. Also, if you're used to tours in US, there are no additional fees at the wineries, expect for wines you'd like to purchase and ship home (which I would totally recommend and the prices were surprising reasonable to do so). Chiara was our guide and was outstanding both with knowledge of wine and knowledge of Florence history, as she also guides tours in the city during the week. I would highly recommend this tour!

This was a perfect tour of Tuscany. Roberto was a wonderful tour guide/driver. The van could have held more people but it just ended up being the my group of three friends. We had a great time. It was a highlight of our trip!
