Next, we set off into the Chianti hills, enjoying views of beautiful forests, rows of vineyards and pretty medieval hamlets. The beautiful town of Greve is famous for its triangular-shaped piazza and for being the home of the famous sailor named Verrazzano. Spend your leisure time visiting the local boutiques and market stalls before we take a short drive to Castello di Verrazzano, where you will have a guided visit of the castle’s gardens and historical ageing cellars. Enjoy a guided tasting of some of the best wines, as well as lunch with gastronomic specialties prepared with local ingredients right from the farm and other local Tuscan producers.

B L D Day 3: BORGO SAN LUIGI • FLORENCE • BORGO SAN LUIGI After breakfast, enjoy a relaxing drive to Florence, where you will have free time to explore the “Cradle of Renaissance.” Based on Etruscan-Roman origins, the city flourished in the Middle Ages as a free “commune” and was further refined by the Renaissance.
