Private Luxury Transportation from Florence
To make this private day trip from Florence even better, we pick you up from your accommodations in Florence. From there, on the way to your first stop in the Chianti wine region, travel through the beautiful Tuscan countryside with a friendly English-speaking driver.
Discover the history and culture of the stunning Tuscan city of Siena. With your local guide, head to the city's medieval Cathedral adorned with a dome from the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Head through the squares of the city home to the annual Palio. This unique horse race represents the power and rivalry of Siena's families and neighborhood. See the tight quarters and imagine how thousands pack in for this major derby.
Travel past the olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills of the prestigious Chianti winemaking region on your way to an organic Chianti farmhouse. Tour the farm and meet the owner Silvano, before sampling his home made extra-virgin olive oil and some of the best wine around. Plus, sit down for a delicious lunch of locally-grown products from the family's farm, staying true to the Italian slow food movement. Lunch and wine are included.
Visit a Charming Village in Chianti
With your appetite satiated from an unforgettable meal, hop in the car and head to a small, bucolic village in the Chianti wine region. Enjoy some free time to wander the enchanting cobblestone streets and explore this gorgeous, historic town on your own.
Visit a Vineyard for More Wine Tasting
Continue your journey through the Chianti hills and arrive at another vineyard for more wine tasting. Here, meet a local wine expert and learn about the estate, the winemaking process and sample different wines produced onsite. Compare wine between the first stop on this private wine day tour and this one, since each farm has its own techniques of producing their products.
Then, after a long day of exploring and tasting the nectar of the gods in one of the best wine-producing regions in the world, sit back and relax on your ride back to Florence. You'll really appreciate your private driver now as you might have enjoyed a few extra sips than normal.

We loved our trip! Our driver was great and the lunch at the winery was amazing!
I love Tuscany!
I can't believe how beautiful the Tuscan countryside was. We had been traveling from city to city, so it was a lovely change of scenery to see the hills and vineyards instead of buildings (even though the buildings are more beautiful in Italy). The food, customer service, and wine were outstanding. I never wanted the tour to end! I will definitely be doing this tour again when I go back!

Our driver Roberto was amazing. He was very professional and accommodating. He was timely and informative. Roberto is awesome. The winery in Chianti was breathtaking. Beautiful place that gave us a tour of the grounds followed by a lunch pairing.
