Tour Details

This private experience can be customised according to your travels and preferences.

Transfers and pick ups can be arranged from Rome and Florence as well as potentially other surrounding areas.

We will visit an award-winning Tuscan farm, known as an ‘agriturismo’, which grows their own produce and even has their own dairy where they hand make cheeses and other products.

Here you may experience truffle hunting, pasta making, bread baking cheese making, and taste a wide variety of foods while enjoying a 5 course meal.

You will also visit a beautiful winery and enjoy a tour of the vinyards as well as a delicious wine-tasting.



Is it suitable for vegetarians or vegans?

The Tuscan food safari is suitable for vegetarians but please let us know upon booking. We are also able to cater for a vegan diet with prior warning.

Is the tour suitable for children?

Children are welcome on our tours. This experience includes wine and a wine tasting which of course is not for children and they may not find it interesting, but they can be catered for with delicious fresh juices or cordials.

How long is the safari and where does it go?

The precise duration will depend on where you are coming and leaving from. Typically we will leave from Florence city centre and drive 1 .5 hours through the Val D’Orcia countryside south of Siena visiting an agriturismo and a winery.

However, upon request add-ons may be booked including transfers from wherever you may be staying. Please allow a full day.


Feel free to contact us with any further questions.

  1. Angela Pickren

    Amazing tour and transfer service. Don’t hesitate to use ArtViva. Rose helped us plan our transfer service from Rome to Florence based on what we would enjoy. Jonathan was an excellent and attentive host and driver. The private tour of the farm was very informative and just lovely. This is the place you visualize when you think of Tuscany. The cheese, wine and food was superb. The view was incredible. It met every expectation. I definitely plan to go back and look forward to planning more tours with ArtViva.
