Explore the picturesque landscape of Tuscany as your private driver guide transports you through the rolling hills of this famous wine-making region. Learn about the wines made here, and see traces of the land's ancestral inhabitants–the Etruscans.
What to Expect
Lose yourself in the lush landscape of rolling hills, vineyards, and olive groves as your driver guide transports you to the Tuscan coast on this full-day tour from Florence.
After being collected from your hotel, head towards the charming town of Bolgheri. This is the land of the most celebrated Tuscan wines such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Macchiole, and Argentieri.
The Bolgheri area is never crowded like Florence, Pisa, or San Gimignano, so you can truly enjoy the flavor of Tuscany without the crowds. Discover both the modern and ancient Tuscany along the coast as your driver-guide reveals to you the traces of the Etruscans.
The Etruscans were the true ancestors of this region, occupying the area between the Arno River and the Tiber River. Traces of their transport infrastructure, agriculture, art, and mining operations can still be seen today. Learning about the Etruscans is a brilliant way of providing a context to many of the Renaissance attractions back in Florence.
Alongside learning about the past, discover the modern culture existing within this area today. Enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the hill towns, or by the Mediterranean, the option is yours. Taste the famous flavors of authentic Italian cooking, and relax as you breathe in the fresh air of the Tuscan countryside.
