What to Expect
Enjoy a guided walking tour through Florence in the morning, and discover the birthplace and “Cradle of the Renaissance.”

The 1.5-hour introductory tour is designed for all those interested in learning the facts and secrets of Florence’s 2,000-year history, from its Roman origins through its days as the capital of art and culture. See a 15th-century palace, and walk across the covered Ponte Vecchio to the Uffizi courtyard. Marvel at Brunelleschi’s Dome on the Duomo, overlooking the Baptistery’s golden “Gates of Paradise.”

Get a better understanding and appreciation of the background and context to the Renaissance and the city’s place in history. Enjoy a pizza or pasta lunch before departing for Chianti. Drive through the rolling hills of Tuscany and see the vineyards of the Chianti wine region. The 5-hour scenic tour of Chianti includes a visit to a charming wine estate for a guided tour of the wine cellars, and an insight into the various stages of wine production.

Taste the various wines of the winery, paired with sliced cold meats, bruschetta and salami. You will also go to the characteristic fortress of Monteriggioni, where you can stop for a coffee or gelato in a town mentioned in Dante Alighieri’s “Divine Comedy.” See some of the best-preserved city walls in Italy.
