World-famous for its hill towns, scenery, cuisine and wine; there are a lot of reasons to visit Tuscany. Experience all of these in the most authentic, relaxed way possible on our Tuscany tours from Florence. Taking the hassle out of your visit so you can sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine (or two)
Visit the beautiful medieval town of Siena, see its cathedral and wander its atmospheric streets
Enjoy lunch, a wine-tasting and an authentic Italian pasta-making demonstration at an authentic Chianti farmhouse and vineyard, and explore pretty little San Gimignano
Throughout your day trip from Florence, you’ll be accompanied by a friendly, English-speaking tour leader. They’ll teach you about the sites you pass, the towns you visit and the food and wine you consume. Meanwhile, small groups of 18 or fewer and luxury air-con transport makes for a more relaxed experience
Our day starts in central Florence, where you’ll meet your expert tour leader and small group of just 18 people. Then hop into your comfortable minibus and head into the beautiful hills of Tuscany.
The first stop on our Tuscany tour from Florence is Siena. Miraculously spared the bombing of WWII, it is an incredible example of medieval town planning and architecture.
Of course no Tuscany tour would be complete without a visit to the wine region! Famous for its wine of the same name, Chianti is a beautiful area full of rolling hills and picture-perfect farmhouses. It’s at one of these postcard spots we stop next! Take a tour of the farm, vineyards and wine cellars, before settling in for lunch and a guided wine tasting - and learn a few tips with a live, authentic Italian pasta-making demonstration!
What you eat will depend on the season. Tuscan cuisine is famously linked to its produce, using the best and freshest ingredients for the most hearty, delicious dishes. This is Italian food at its finest, all included in the price of your tour.
Then it’s on to the little town of San Gimignano, so pretty and architecturally significant, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll enjoy a full tour of the city then have free time to shop for souvenirs or climb the city’s campanile for the other best view in Tuscany.
From start to finish the emphasis of our day trip from Florence is on indulgence: indulge in stunning scenery, delicious wines and lazy strolls on our all-inclusive Tuscan adventure. We’ve taken care of all the details so all you have to worry about is how much Chianti wine you can fit in your suitcase.
