Florence 2 Taste of Tuscany
Start your day with a tasting of Chianti’s finest wine paired with authentic Italian cheeses and meats in a hillside vineyard. You'll pinch yourself to make sure the rolling hillside views of Tuscany are real. Next, visit the gorgeous town of San Gimignano to devour the world’s best gelato and climb towers with panoramic views under the Tuscan sun. We'll then set off to another local vineyard where you'll finish with a homemade Italian meal of ribollita, lasagna and the most decadent truffle oil you've ever tasted; not to mention, a 7+ glass tasting presented by the ever-charming staff (full disclaimer, you may fall in love with them!) You'll make it home in time for a quick nap before enjoying yet another perfect night in Florence.
