Tuscany Wine Trails 8 days package

for couples or small group of friends

Smart package designed for the indipendent traveler based on a private basis and partecipatipon to some group sightseeing to discover Tuscany which combines delicious wine, stunning views of rolling vineyards and natural beauty, not to mention historic art cities which are home to works by the great Italian masters. This tour will mainly focus on the region’s vino production, taking you to some of the best wineries that develop the finest wines Italy has to offer. From perusing the medieval villages of the Chianti and Chianti Classico wine areas (where you will learn about the vinification process as well as try other local delicacies such as traditional Tuscan salami and cheese) to exploring the stunning Val D’Orcia (a UNESCO World Heritage site boasting Castello Banfi, a magical winery set in a 12th Century Castle) this tour is not only a literal feast but also a feast for your eyes, and your inquisitive mind. Also to make it even further a great value for money we only included breakfast and some tasting as we think that is important to leave the rest of the meals to the personal discovery  and taste, of course with the suggestions of our ground staff  if required
