Your LivTours’ Chianti Wine Tour begins with pickup at your residence where your bilingual chauffeur will meet you. From there you’ll set off to spend a half-day touring the beautiful Tuscan hills in the comfort of your private air-conditioned car! The Chianti region is famous for its wines which they have made for centuries. You’ll have the opportunity during your tour to taste some of the best examples of these historic wines!
Your first stop is at Castello di Verrazzano, a prestigious vineyard named for the ancient Etruscan and Roman castle that has stood on this winemaking territory for 1,000 years! In the heart of the Chianti Classico area, this 52 hectare estate makes some of the best examples of this famous red wine. You’ll spend 1.5 hours touring the castle gardens, ancient wine cellars, and tasting their finest Chianti Classico DOCG wines, olive oil and balsamic vinegars as well.
After your visit to Castello di Verrazzano, your chauffeur will drive you through the Chianti’s small roads and lovely hills to your next stop, a charming agriturismo. Situated in an old convent, this classic farm-stay makes wine, olive oil, and other typical Tuscan foods. Here you’ll have the chance to eat lunch outside with fresh foods they produce themselves served of course with their own Chianti wines! Besides the stunning countryside views you’ll also be able to see the ancient towered skyline of nearby San Gimignano, a unique Italian town worth arranging to explore after lunch whether with your driver or on your own.
Your Chianti Wine Tour concludes with your private driver taking you back to your accommodations in Florence or the Chianti area. This half-day tour is an ideal escape into the cypress-lined hills of this beautiful wine region.

Tuscan wine tour
"I booked this tour as a surprise birthday present for my husband, an avid wine lover but, frankly, who wouldn't enjoy a tour centered around tasting and learning about some of the most famous wines in the world? The countryside is beautiful, the guide absolutely brilliant and the wines...well, there's just no one-word adjective that adequately describs our experience. A really wonderful tour!!"
