1. Vinci: The Footsteps of Leonardo and Wine Tasting Tour
There are few town names in the world that arouse curiosity like Vinci in Tuscany. Now you can follow the footsteps of the great inventor Leonardo da Vinci on our half-day tour from Florence. After picking you up from your hotel in Florence, we will take you on an unusual tour of Tuscany and the hills where Leonardo was born. In the lovely town of Vinci you will visit the Leonardo Museum, where most of da Vinci’s inventions and projects are on display. The museum has been built in a manner that will transport you straight back to the 11th century, making it a truly absorbing place to visit. But Vinci isn’t all about inventions. Nestled in the beautiful Tuscan countryside, the town is also known for producing excellent olive oil and wine. On the way back to Florence, we’ll make a stop at a local winery where you can taste a truly great red wine – Chianti Montalbano – as well as some local extra-virgin olive oil. And after seeing the museum and tasting the region's delicious wine, you can sit back, relax and let us take you back to your hotel in Florence.
