Full description
Discover the beauty of the Chianti wine region on this shore excursion from Livorno. After getting picked up from the port, enjoy a relaxing 1.5-hour drive through the picturesque Chianti countryside to reach your first stop, the charming market town of Greve-in-Chianti where you can visit Macelleria Falorni, a specialist in wild boar and pecorino cheeses and one of the best butchers in Italy.

Later, as you cross the hills to Montefioralle, the tiny hamlet where Amerigo Vespucci was born, enjoy a wine tasting tour at a small family-owned estate. Your journey will then take you through the Antinori vineyards at Badia a Passignano to relax over a convivial Tuscan lunch at a little osteria hidden away amongst these rolling hills.

After lunch, stop at the World Heritage site of San Gimignano with its unforgettable skyline of towers.

Depending on where your ship docks, your driver will either be waiting on the dock as close to your ship as possible. If there are two gangplank exits he will be waiting in the centre of both. Or your driver will meet you after the passenger terminal that you will have to walk through. He will be holding a sign with your name on it.
