CHIANTI and SAN GIMIGNANO GRAND TOUR (GT-BUS)
The beautiful ruby colour and the characteristic fragrance with hints of violet are the distinguishing marks of the identity of one of the most famous wines in the world: Chianti.

You will taste this refined product at one of the best wine cellars of the area accompanying the wine with a selection of bruschettas (garlic bread), typical cheeses and Tuscan salami and sliced cold meats. Our expert and brilliant tour leaders will guide you in the discovery of the marvellous unspoilt landscapes that have been cradling the Chianti vineyards for centuries, unravelling before your eyes in a harmony of colours that only the hills of this region can give you. The sounds, fragrances and tastes of this land will steal your senses through a unique experience to be discovered, tasted and understood by visiting ancient churches, medieval castles and little hamlets where the pace of life has remained unchanged over the course of time. With us you will enjoy the pleasure of exploring these fantastic settings and relishing their ancient traditions.
