Premium food and wine tour of Florence & the surrounding Countryside

This premium wine tour features vineyard walks at superb wineries in Chianti and Montalcino, and mouth-watering gourmet discoveries. Visits to Florence and Siena, two of the most spectacular cities in Italy, are also included, as well as hidden gems like Pietrasanta, Lucca, and Carrara and classics like Pisa. You will have your private chauffeur for the duration of this Luxury Tour, along with excellent local guides. The accommodation chosen for this tour is extremely luxurious, two of the most beautiful hotels in Europe and certainly in Italy.

Apart from sleeping in utter luxury, you will visit the beautiful cities of Florence and Siena; whose combined artistic heritage is more than most countries! Local art historians will lead you through the best galleries and museums (including the Uffizi Gallery), and you will have the chance to explore some lesser-known jewels, such as the Boboli Gardens, and picturesque medieval villages and towns like Pisa, Lucca, and Pietrasanta.

The cuisine featured on this tour is, as always, on our tours, a major highlight. Dine-in Michelin-starred restaurants along with rustic, mom-and-pop trattorias. The restaurants are hand-selected to show you the best Tuscany has to offer. The wines and specialties of Toscana are revered as being some of the finest in the world. On this tour, you’ll taste vintage Brunello di Montalcino and classic Chianti wines. Delicious local dishes include “Pappardelle Alla Lepre” (pappardelle pasta cooked with hare), Fagioli all’uccelletto (flavorful beans and tomato sauce), ribollita soup, wild boar cured sausage (“Prosciutto di Cinghiale”), topetti (hand made gnocchi from Versilia) and Lardo di Colonnata. Also on the menu is the famous Florentine dish “Bistecca Alla Fiorentina,” a huge T-Bone Tuscan steak usually big enough for two. You will taste it at Dario Cecchini, a veritable mecca for meat lovers. And, to finish off any proper Tuscan meal, perhaps while you are dining al fresco at one of the gorgeous hotels included in this tour, you must try the “Cantucci with Vin Santo” (Macaroons and “holy wine”). Divine! If you are looking for a luxurious food and wine orientated tour from Florence, with the “Best of” highlights of the region’s art treasures, then this tour is for you.
