- Pick up at your accommodation in Pistoia and transfer to Chianti region.
The tour travels along the main “Chiantigiana” road which starts out just a little south of Florence. The stunning landscape is typical Tuscan countryside full of green undulating hills with large plots of land covered with vineyards interspersed with orchards of olive trees and bordered by rows of cypresses.
The winding road is brightened by the many poppies that grow on each side of the road all along its many twisting turns into the heart of Chianti. Every so often, you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of the typical round bales of hay of the region and, in the summertime, admire the sunflowers that flood the countryside with their bright yellow colors.
The first stop is the ancient village of Castellina in Chianti, the west border of the Chianti region. Once we arrive at Castellina, you’ll have the opportunity to take a stroll in the medieval down the covered soldiers’ walk in the 15th century defensive walls of the city and stop at the small square where you can taste some homemade gelato or purchase a souvenir or two. We than proceed to an ancient castle today a very good winery.
You will be fascinated by the stories of the families that lived there and their wines.
Light lunch with wine tasting at the castle.
After lunch we will proceed to Radda in Chianti, where the noble families, used to have once upon a time their Palazzos.
