Exclusive, privately driven door-to-door Tour in Tuscany


Travel back a thousand years and discover Monteriggioni, where you will take a walk along its walls and gaze out onto its surrounding, stunningly timeless countryside.

Make a pilgrimage to postcard perfect San Gimignano, where 13 of its original 72 towers will envelope you and provide a striking and enchanting backdrop to your visit.

Enjoy typical Tuscan cuisine in a countryside setting, toasting with a glass of Sangiovese or Chianti Classico.

Take in the heart-stopping beauty of the Tuscan countryside that leads into the Chianti Classico wine country. Sample distinctive wines, exquisite extra-virgin olive oil, Vin Santo and Grappa, while expert guides reveal the secrets behind this world renowned wine making process.

Stroll down a panoramic road in Castellina in Chianti, a Medieval, Florentine stronghold atop a hill, to where an authentic, handmade gelato tasting awaits you!

A Recent Review of this tour

What a wonderful trip! Roberto was very knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. He was very accommodating to what we were looking to see and learn. We visited his hometown Sienna, San Gimignano, had a wonderful lunch with a great view from a small hilltop village, and enjoyed Chianti Classico at Querciabella Winery. Thank you Roberto for making this part of our trip so memorable.
