Type of Service: Chianti Tour from Florence with Wine Tasting and Lunch in the Tuscan Countryside with visits to the towns of Greve and Panzano - with private driver and private tour guide

Let your private driver and personal guide help you discover the charm of Tuscany’s countryside on your Chianti Wine Tours with prestigious wines and delicious local products.

You will be picked up from your accommodations in a luxury vehicle and driven about 21 miles 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 wine 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 wine stop on this Tuscan countryside wine tour and just a 15-minutes drive from Greve is the hamlet of Panzano in Chianti.  Panzano is 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 quaint, one of those places where you can really soak up the atmosphere of times gone by. You will visit a popular butcher shop of Antica Macelleria Cecchini (a butcher shop + restaurant famous for its Florentine T-bone steak) You will meet the famous butcher of Panzano, who offers you witty conversations, wine, and salami upon entering his shop.
