Description

The Chianti region of Tuscany is truly glorious and best experienced with a local, licensed driver who knows the area. 

Chianti is the romanticized swath of Tuscany known for its rolling hills, cypress trees and stone castles, known the world over for the remarkable wine produced here. Its history stems from the Etruscans, who were the first to identify the region as an attractive source for grapes. The Romans further developed the area’s agriculture, which also included olives.  Today, the production zones of Chianti fall around Florence in the north, Siena in the south, Arezzo in the east and Pisa in the west. These cities’ histories are as rich, complicated and lurid as a Shakespearean drama.

During the 13th century, acrimony between the Florentine Guelphs and Siennese Ghibellines gave way to the rise of the famous Florentine family, the Medicis, in the 14th century. Savvy merchants and bankers, the Medicis ruled during the Renaissance, when the arts, literature and wine flourished.

In 1716, Grand Duke Cosimo III de’Medici demarcated the first Chianti wine zone, now known as the Chianti Classico Fast forward two centuries and production had grown throughout the region. The Italian government created the Chianti Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) in 1967, which was included a central subzone of Chianti Classico.

Over the course of the day, you will experience this remarkable region and visit some of the most important and beautiful towns including Panzano, Radda and Greve. 

The tour can start in Florence, Siena or other areas.
