    Day 5: Private Chianti Tour from Florence with Wine Tasting and Lunch in the Tuscan Countryside with Visits to the Towns of Greve and Panzano

    Located about 35 km south of Florence, well off the main roads, Greve in Chianti is considered by many as the gateway to the Chianti wine region and boasts an attractive, triangular-shaped piazza that has been a marketplace since the Middle Ages. The Falorni family owns the town's three main tourist attractions: the Museo del Vino, a huge cellar where you can sample and buy wine, and the oldest butcher shop in Italy. Here you will sample a glass of wine, meats, and cheeses in the outdoor piazza. After the wine and food tasting, you will have time to explore the shops in the main square.

    The next stop on this Tuscan countryside tour and just a 15-minute drive from Greve is the hamlet of Panzano in Chianti, best known for its 12th-century castle that played a crucial role in defending the Florentine Republic during the battles between Florence and Siena. The town is very pretty and quiet, one of those places where you can really soak up the atmosphere of times gone by. You will visit a popular butcher shop - Antica Macelleria Cecchini (a butcher shop + restaurant famous for its Florentine T-bone steak). Dario Cecchini, the hilarious owner, offers you witty conversation, wine, and salami when you enter his shop.

    The final stop on this amazing tour is a small winery/farm where you will discover the famous Chianti wines and fine products such as extra virgin olive oil, honey, and balsamic vinegar.

Then you will go to the nearby Acetaia, tasting fully-aged balsamic vinegar.

You will meet our guide at Piazza Maggiore for a one-hour tour of the city to discover the most important sites such as San Petronio, Palazzo d'Accursio, Palazzo Re Enzo, Palazzo del Podestà. You will then stroll the Medieval Food Market known as the Quadrilatero, the most ancient of the city. The name comes from the characteristic square shape which is reminiscent of the Roman city. The old market is bordered by the most ancient and representative monuments of the city such as the Archiginnasio (first permanent seat of Bologna University), Palazzo dei Banchi (an elegant frame which hides an old medieval house), and the Merchants Palace (today seat of the Chamber of Commerce).

    The tour will include a pasta workshop where an expert “sfoglina” – pasta sheet maker – will give you an introduction on the history of handmade pasta and the region’s traditional recipes. She will teach you the secrets of making and rolling out the pasta, such as tortellini, tortelloni, and tagliatelle. Naturally, you will be provided with a pasta board, a rolling pin, and fresh ingredients so you can try creating what you’ve been shown!
