OVERVIEW

Our Chianti wine Tour is for food and wine lovers, this is for you! The Chianti wine Tour from Rome is specifically designed for gourmet enthusiasts who want to see (and taste!) more than roman arts.

Embarque on this trip to the countryside famous for the landscapes so dear to Renaissance artists.

Combine stunning sceneries with premium food and wine and you have the perfect day out.

After leaving Rome behind, the luxury coach journey will take you to Cortona, a town that has changed little since the Middle Ages.

Cortona has enjoyed renewed popularity across the world since it lent its streets and squares to the set of Oscar winning movie ‘Life is Beautiful’.

Also narrated by Frances Mayes in its “Under the Tuscan Sun”, Cortona encompasses all the essentials of the culture and traditions of this region at the heart of Italy.

Stroll through the historic centre, discovering its hidden corners and absorbing the atmosphere of this picturesque town.

Jump back on the coach and drive along the shores of lake Trasimeno and after a short journey you will be stopping at a typical countryside restaurant where you will be served traditional dishes from Umbria and Tuscany.

In the afternoon, you will be heading to the hills famous for the production of Chianti as you will reach the hilltop town of Montepulciano.

This is home for the deep ruby red wine, “Vino Nobile”, that has made its popularity known at every corner of the World.

The Chianti wine tour: you will be able to visit its oldest cellars, carved out of the tufo rock, to discover some of the secrets of the local winemakers and of course to taste their precious product.

Spend time at leisure in Montepulciano before relaxing on your journey back to Rome, where you will be back around 7pm/8pm approximately, with the opportunity of a drop off in central locations.
