Greve Painting of Giovanni Verrazzano

 

A luxury tour in the most famous area Chianti, the heart of Tuscany, driving through countryside of unequalled beauty, vineries, alternating woods with vines and olive trees, where Romanesque Churches, farmhouses, Villas and Castles of rare beauty are to be found with your trained chauffeur.

Your driver will pick you up from your port of call and travel 45 minutes along the highway to the beginning of the "Wine Road".   Crossing the beautiful Chianti area on your way to a place of particular historic and artistic interest, Greve which is the heart of the Chianti area, the most important village known all over the world.
 

 Greve - here you will find the monument to Giovanni da Verrazzano (the explorer that discovered the largest part of the East Coast of America), Piazza Matteotti with its lovely porticoes, the San Francesco convent, and many shops, wine-cellars, and butchers.  All of the most famous people of Hollywood have stopped in here to order the best beef, salami and ham in the world! So if you want to feel a VIP for a day why not stop as well.

After Greve you will continue your way to the renowned magnificent castle of Verrazzano.

 

You may decide:

  whether to stop off and enjoy the simple wine tasting, as well as a visit to the castle,  gardens, and centuries-old ageing cellars.

or

for something a little different, visit the surrounding woods where the wild boars breed naturally! Where you will be bale to see the way the wine is made and, most importantly, will give you the opportunity to taste the various products of the farm, together several wines, each one to accompany different meats.

or

for your next choice, a complete wine tasting, which will offer you the same tour of the Castle, as well as a complete lunch made up of all of the products on the farm.  Each dish will be accompanied by the appropriate wine. This is an experience that you will certainly never forget! 

 

But discuss with your chauffeur he will be able to give you an idea of what you had in mind.   Depending on which option you choose (the lunch option will take longer)

 

you may also get a chance to visit San Gimignano, Monteriggioni castle, Volterra, or Siena.  But this is always best to discuss with us, so contact our office and we will be pleased to answer your question.
