Due to Covid-19, this tour has been amended to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests.

Experience the best that Tuscany has to offer - including a sumptuous locally-prepared lunch, pasta demonstration and wine tastings at a beautiful family-run vineyard - on this carefully-planned tour. Taking you to two of the most charming (and historic) towns of the region, we ensure you can see as much of Tuscany as possible without any of the difficult planning and navigation. With an experienced driver on hand you won't have to worry about winding roads - or drinking too much of that wonderful Chianti wine!

Your driver and tour leader will pick you up in comfortable, air-conditioned transport in central Florence and drive you over the rolling hills of Tuscany to the town of Siena; one of the most beautiful and historically important in the area. Here you will enjoy a full tour with your expert guide who will tell you the story behind its landmark sights like the central square and cathedral.

All this exploring will give you an appetite so after Siena you'll head to a local vineyard for a tour of the cellars, a wine tasting, and a delicious homemade lunch of locally-sourced ingredients.

Once upon a time, Tuscany's food was considered cucina povera, or poor food, for its reliance on ingredients like tomatoes, bread, and olive oil. Thankfully, today we know better. Eat your lunch on the terrace overlooking the rolling hills and vineyards of Chianti and wash it down with some delicious Chianti wine - we highly recommend the red. Then learn the key to making authentic Italian pasta with a cooking demonstration and take home tips to try yourself later!

Finally, you'll spend the afternoon in the hilltown of San Gimignano on another full tour of the town with your guide. This is one of the best-preserved Medieval villages, built high atop hills to keep a lookout for hostile armies. You'll also have some free time after your tour to shop for souvenirs, enjoy a coffee in one of the charming piazzas, or climb to the top of the church's belltower for incomparable views of the countryside.

This trip is all about seeing as much of Tuscany as possible without having to worry about logistics. We'll take care of everything so all you have to do is enjoy the food, the sights and the scenery.

I had taken this same tour with my mom two years prior. I came back to Florence with my husband and did a lot of research on other tours. I went back to Walks because it really was so perfect for my mom and I that I wanted my husband to have the same experience. I knew what I was going to get with Walks. Quality! This tour was even better this time around! This was our highlight in Florence for sure! The van was great, cozy and safe! The destinations were gorgeous, the wine farm was perfect, and such a personable experience , the guide was so personable and informative. He took us to this AMAZING spot in San Gimgiagno over looking the Tuscan valley that I didn’t see on my first tour with Walks.The guide talked to each small group making everyone feel included. He gave us the best day in Florence we had! I will ALWAYS go with Walks tours whenever I travel. I loved my experiences!
