FULL DESCRIPTION

Visit Florence’s top sights, and enjoy a countryside tour in the world-famous Chianti Classico Region for wine-tasting. From Rome, you'll set off on a journey in a fully equipped car, with an English-speaking driver. Once in Florence, the tour begins at Piazza San Marco where you'll visit the peaceful and beautifully maintained Dominican monastery, one of the most delightful museums in Florence, with important frescoes and paintings by Fra’ Angelico. You'll stroll to the famous San Lorenzo market, and stop for an exterior view of the Medici Palace. A few steps more and you will reach the Duomo and Baptistery, the religious center of the city and Piazza Signoria, the political center. Between the two, stop off for an espresso in one of Florence’s historic cafes. From here you'll walk to the medieval district of Florence and the “Ponte Vecchio,” also known as the “Golden Bridge” due to its historic shops. Your tour of the city concludes at the acclaimed Accademia museum where you’ll see the impressive statue of David by Michelangelo. Afterward, continue onto the Chianti region, passing through breathtaking countryside and pretty hilltop towns. Here you stop for a typical Tuscan lunch in a medieval village followed by a visit to a family-run winery, where a passion for wine-making has been handed down for generations. Today, that passion is combined with modern technology to meet the highest standards. Here you will taste a selection of white, red, Super Tuscan and Vin Santo wines. You'll learn all about the wine-making process and how it is linked to local food and culture and then you will return to Rome.
