Description

Leave Siena aboard a luxury minivan and head east into the heart of Italy’s picturesque Chianti region to start your Chianti wine-tasting and castles trip. Passing through the captivating countryside, you'll see the cypress trees and olive groves that typify this beautiful part of Tuscany. Soon enough, you'll notice impressive castles, fortified farm houses and towers that bear testimony to turbulent wars between the once opposing republics of Siena and Florence.

Perched high on a forested hill sits the enchanting Castello di Brolio -- your first Chianti castle visit of the day. Learn about its importance during medieval battles, and about the fascinating Ricasoli family who have owned the castle since the 11th century. With your friendly and knowledgeable guide, explore the Castello di Brolio vineyards where the world-famous red Chianti wine is said to have originated. Then, enjoy a photo opportunity amid the gorgeous surroundings.

Continue to the Chianti village of Radda in Chianti for a visit to this charming Chianti village. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to a traditional Tuscan farm for lunch and enjoy platters of locally produced food and fine wines. After this delicious feast, continue to one of the countryside’s many quaint medieval villages and spend time exploring at leisure. Your guide will happily recommend local coffee bars or interesting sights for you to see.

The last stop of the day is at another Chianti winery, where you'll meet the local producer and hear about the lifestyle of the charismatic Chianti folk. Visit the cellars and gardens before enjoying a relaxing ride back to Siena.
