Top attractions in Chianti Hills
In the Chianti region of Tuscany in Italy you can discover quaint villages, vineyards, and castles set among the rolling hills.
Take the "Chianti Wine Tour from Florence" to visit two wineries to discover how generations of Tuscan families have made this region famous for fine wine. At each winery learn about how the wine is produced and enjoy a wine tasting of the wines produced in the Chianti Hills.
Olive groves and farms in the region produce olive oils and Tuscan food such as artisan cheese and meats. Amidst the vineyards you will find the charming village of Greve with its inviting town square with a fine food shop where you can taste local products and shops of local artisans.
Tuscan cuisine is famous all over the world. Take the "Cooking Class of Tuscan Cuisine in Chianti". Taking a cooking class with a local cook is a good way to learn about the food and culture of the Chianti area. Cooking classes are held in a picturesque villa or typical Tuscan farm house.
On your next trip to Italy make time for the Chianti Hills. The incredible landscapes, artisans, and fine food of the Chianti Hills make for lasting memories.
What people are saying about Chianti Hills
We could not have had a better experience. While it was supposed to be a group tour, my daughter and I ended up being the only 2. Our tour guide, Francesco, is the reason for my 5 star rating. He bought my daughter her first Italian coffee and then entertained us and was willing to answer all of our questions about Tuscany (and really Italy in general). He even shared his Napoletan pizza dough recipe with us! San Gimignano is a quaint and beautiful town and I do wish we had had more time to explore. Don't miss Dondoli's Gelato! Both wineries were beautiful and we learned a lot about the process of wine making. We were given bread, meats, cheeses, olive oils (including truffle and spicy truffle), balsalmic vinegar and dessert. We arrived back in Florence full and happy and with wonderful information and memories. Thank you Francesco!
3 visits of beatifil medieval towns + one wine tasting and excet excellent lunch, in an 11 hrs day packed with truly enjoyable events. Gloria and Asia, our tour ladies guide, were a perfect example of skills, courtesy and kindness. The bus driver was excellent and made us feel safe. The bus itself was very comfortable. We loved the whole trip and especially the amazing tour of Siena at the end. Best choice ever to pick San Gimignano, Monteriggiano and Siena. No need to go to Pisa. Bravo to the team and thanks to the delightful Tuscany treasures. Highly recommended tour.
Trip was well organized, saved us the hassle of jumping between busses n trains to do these places on our own. Lorenzo, our guide great too very humorous n helpful, he even helped us secure a cab to our hotel from the drop off point, after the trip got over. Would recommend to anyone doing the trip for the first time n not wanting to venture out too much experimenting self guided tours on holidays. Let's u relax n enjoy thoroughly.
This excursion was 100% worth it! I loved every minute of my time at the fabulous winery. The bus was comfortable, the wine was incredible, and the dinner setting was so unbelievably gorgeous. The entire excursion was beautiful, relaxing and fun! I couldn't have asked for a better night :)
It was really good with great friendly, informative guides but it was a really hot day and the a/c on the bus didn't work so that spoiled it a bit. Lots of walking up hills and steps so really needed to return to a cool bus. Great lunch, meeting different people from around the world.
