My sister and I took two tours with Ciao Florence. Our first one was a half-day afternoon trip to Chianti, where we visited two wineries and enjoyed wine tasting with yummy Italian appetizers. We enjoyed it so much that we booked a full-day tour for more wine tasting in Montalcino and Montepulciano, with a stop in Pienza for cheese tasting. Brando was our tour guide for both trips, and he was fabulous! Our drivers, Massimo and Ben, were kind and friendly. Thank you, Ciao Florence, for helping us make the most of our trip to Italy!

Description

Spend a day exploring the beautiful towns of Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano, enjoy two different wine tastings, and savour some world-famous Pecorino cheese!

The tour begins with a wine tasting at a farm in Montalcino, the land of the renowned Brunello wine. You’ll be enchanted by the charm of this special cellar.

You’ll then move up to the peak of the town, where a magnificent sight will take your breath away: sun-drenched rolling hills, ancient oaks, picturesque olive groves, scenic country roads winding through perfect vineyards, and isolated cypress trees.

The next stop is Pienza, which stands high upon a hill and offers amazing views of the entire Val d'Orcia. Enjoy a Pecorino cheese tasting session and explore the pretty alleyways of the town at your leisure.

The final destination is Montepulciano, home of the famous Vino Nobile vineyards, and more recently famous for being the filming location of the vampire movie, New Moon.

Visit the dungeon where the wine is stored, beneath the ancient walls of the winery, and enjoy your second wine tasting session before heading back to Florence.

A Top 10 Tour
One of the best tours we have ever done! We had a great guide (Dario) and driver (Lorenzo), a comfortable bus, a small group (16 of us), perfect weather (end of October), gorgeous hill towns, fantastic wine and cheese tastings - what more could we ask for.
We found the tour very well organized. We loved the small group and even with many different nationalities, we all clicked. The drive was lovely and Dario spent his time telling us all we needed to know without over-talking. We found this great value and a good deal of fun and saw Tuscany at her best. Thank you for a perfect day.
Nice wine tour in Tuscany
This was a lovely tour--mini bus of 18 was very comfortable. Liked the towns and felt we had a nice amount of time in each. Liked that we had the option to have lunch on our own. (However, that would have been nice to know in advance). Would have also liked to know which wineries in advance. The meeting spot is HORRIBLE. Hard to find and the ticket/news stand was even closed the day of our tour.

What a great day!
We did this tour yesterday on our last day staying in Florence. 100% would recommend. We had two very
lovely tour guides (Francesco and stanislava) and a friendly bus driver. We had a fantastic day seeing many things that we wouldn't have gotten to see on our own. It's a very big day packed full of fun activities, but had a really good mix of free time as well so you can choose how youd like to experience each place. The wine tasting was very generous portions and we also got to try lovely cheeses, breads, oils (including truffle oil), and balsamic vinegars! It was very interesting learning about the history of each place and having time to explore. A must do tour when in florence. The only thing we would say is allow plenty of time to find the meeting point as we didnt find the instructions very clear and we along with a few others we spoke to ended up running to find it on time. It would've been better to maybe meet out the front of the station and walk to where the buses are. Or have a link to the map with the specific spot to meet pinned. Other then that it was a fantastic day!

Excellent way to spend a day in Tuscany
We throughly enjoyed this day trip, covering a lot of Tuscany with no stress.
Our tour guide Eva Maria was unfailingly cheerful , patient and energetic, dealing with a large bus load and speaking both English and Spanish.
I left an expensive hat at the last stop and Eva phoned the winery for me, collected the hat on her next visit, and posted it back to me in Australia, refusing reimbursement for all her efforts.It was very kind of her, thanks again Eva Maria!
