What You'll Do
  • Taste the wines of Chianti at a 15th-century villa in the Florentine hills
  • Drive the scenic roads of the Arno Valley by vintage Fiat 500
  • Enjoy a picnic lunch by a pool with panoramic views
  • Take part in the wine making process, including harvesting the grapes
Get behind the wheel of a vintage Fiat 500, and drive the quiet roads of Tuscany and the Chianti wine lands on a 5-hour tour from Florence. Go to a 15th-century villa to learn more about the wine making process, and enjoy the on-site swimming pool.
What to Expect
Experience “La Dolce Vita” of Italy from behind the wheel of an iconic vintage Fiat 500, and drive past the vineyards of the Chianti wine region and the hills surrounding Florence.

Stop for panoramic views of the Renaissance city and Arno Valley, before going back to the meeting point, a 15th-century villa in the Florentine hills. Learn more about Chianti wine-making, and take part in the wine-making process. An expert wine maker will take you out into the vineyards to inspect the ripening crop. Then, join in harvesting the grapes, before pressing the fruit back at the winery.

Try your hand at treading grapes to experience the ancient technique of extracting the juice of the fruit. Compare this technique with contemporary methods using modern machinery. Taste the fermenting grape juice, to experience the sugar slowly turning to alcohol. See the old oak barrels in the historic cellars.

Then, it’s time to taste the local produce in the shade at the villa. Take a dip in the swimming pool, with a view of the surrounding hills. End with a wine and olive oil tasting over lunch.
