Spend a day in the countryside surrounded by the Chianti hills and enjoy the view that only this place can offer while tasting local products and drinking incredible wines. Forget the touristy places and live this authentic experience.
Depart from central Florence on a comfortable minivan and take the one and unique Chiantigiana road that will lead you directly inside the Chianti wine region. You’ll reach Badia a Passignano, a real jewel hidden in the hills of Chianti. Here you’ll first visit the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo a Passignano, a beautiful monumental complex located uphill and surrounded by cypresses. This place is also known for its frescos, especially the one by Domenico Ghirlandaio.
After the visit to the Abbey, you’ll enjoy a beautiful wine tasting in the heart of Chianti Classico where you’ll get the chance to taste unique wines with a local host and delight your palate with a Tuscan lunch.
In the afternoon, you will visit a small medieval village with narrow streets and full of artisan shops with a stunning view of the Chianti area, which is famous all over the world thanks to its red wines and local products. Continue your day trip to another charming winery where you’ll have a second wine tasting and enjoy a visit to the cellars with a local host that will help you discover the main steps of wine production.
