Our expert tour escort will start the group from our meeting point in the center of Florence. We exit through the walls of the city and drive towards the panoramic Piazzale Michelangelo to admire a picturesque view of the city.
We then take a scenic ride up to the hilltop town of Fiesole, located to the northeast of Florence. Once in Fiesole you get to see one of the best views of Florence and the gorgeous, green rolling hills. The drive then continues further into the hills where you will eat at one of our favorite restaurants in the area - which is claimed by many of our guests to be one of the best meals of their trip!
On the way back to Florence, we will stop at a local family run Chianti vineyard to see where their wine is made and stored, and have a look at their personal stash of olive oil. Tasting of both is encouraged!
We drive back to Florence arriving no later than 3.30-4 p.m. The tour includes a Tuscan lunch and wine tasting, a fully equipped Fiat 500 and an expert guide to show you the way.
