Tuscan countryside Wine and Food Tour


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

The 4 of us enjoyed our tour with Roberto. Fantastic private winery tour and tasting (7 wines) at Querciabella. A beautiful lunch at Osteria Alla Piazza, then San Gimignana, which included gelato at Gelateria Dondoli-world champion gelato. Ending with a visit to Monteriggioni. Roberto is very knowledgeable of Italy, Siena, architecture, Italian wine & food, restaurants and more. His explanation of the Palio was great: the tradition, contradas, emotions, including a video. Very flexible and good humored.
