DAY TRIP FROM FLORENCE
SIENA & CHIANTI COUNTRYSIDE
Our English speaking driver will be at your hotel or pick up location where we will proceed towards Siena first and then to the beautiful countryside of the Chianti region. Siena is the embodiment of a medieval city. Throughout the centuries, the inhabitants preserved their city’s Gothic appearance, acquired between the 12th and 15th centuries. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape.
Siena is certainly the place in Italy where the traditions and the way of life inherited from a prestigious history have been kept alive. Your tour continue between vineyards and olive trees where we’ll reach Greve in Chianti, the small village, named after the nearby river, it expanded very much during the 14th & 15th centuries, where we will find a monument dedicated to Giovanni da Verrazzano, the explorer who discovered the New York Harbour.
We’ll see Piazza Matteotti with its porticoes, the church of Santa Croce, the San Francesco convent and a series of tiny, shops and wine-cellars. One of the most famous is the butcher shop Falorni, which has been located in this piazza for 500 years. You can have free samples of many of their locally produced products. Many famous people from Hollywood order beef, salami, and ham here. In Greve there is also the wine cellar called “Le Cantine” where you will be able to taste more than 100 different wines, olive oils, vin santo and grappa, all produced in the Chianti area. It’s really a showcase for the Tuscany region’s wines and products.
After Greve, we depart for the magnificent Castle of Verrazzano, found on top of a gorgeous hill between Florence and Siena in the heart of the Chianti Classic wine production area. After our visit of the Castle our tour continues with a drive through the countryside and small villages like Panzano and Castellina in Chianti, with an additional stop for another wine tasting at the famous “Rocca delle Macie” wine shop.
After this stop, we’ll proceed to Siena, where you’ll immediately notice a strange and ancient atmosphere floating through the little, narrow streets and squares. Siena is a very beautiful city to visit, a flamboyant medieval ensemble of places and towers cast in warm, brown, Siena coloured bricks.
