Full description

Discover the highlights of Tuscany on a private tour. Learn about the local gastronomy including wine, honey, pasta, and lentils. Taste some local wine and learn about the history of the area from your guide.

Meet with your private driver and depart towards the south of Tuscany, Chianciano, and Montepulciano. In Chianciano, you will meet your expert local guide, touring to taste extra pure olive oil and learn about special techniques. 

In 15 minutes, you will be in Montepulciano, shopping in the medieval village and discovering its noble wines. Drink inside the ancient cathedral of a noble family and taste the best chocolate paring. Return back to your accommodation in Florence. Montepulciano is a medieval and Renaissance hill town that is located not too far from Siena. It is a major producer of food and drinks, renowned for its pork, cheese, "pici" pasta, lentils, and honey, and known worldwide for its wine.

Connoisseurs consider its vino nobile, which should not be confused with varietal wine merely made from the Montepulciano grape, among Italy's best. A visit to Montepulciano can’t be complete without the possibility to taste some local wine. At the end of the tour, sit back, relax and enjoy your 2.5-hour drive back to your accommodation in Florence. The duration of your tour will be about 10-hours and you can expect to be back at your hotel at around 18:00, depending on the local traffic.
