Get out of town to explore Tuscany’s wine district and visit the city of the historic Palio horse race

The driver will pick you up from your hotel in Florence and take you to the renowned wine district of Chianti, where some of Italy’s finest wines are produced amid a picture-postcard landscape of rolling hills covered in rows of grapes, olive groves and farms. You will visit a family-run wine estate for a tasting session to learn more about the wines produced in the region, followed by a traditional Tuscan lunch. The afternoon will be dedicated to the visit of Siena, where you’ll admire the unique Piazza del Campo that hosts the famous Palio horse race, and stroll around its atmospheric streets filled with Renaissance palaces, art treasures and decorated with the colorful flags representing the different neighborhoods that participate in the Palio.
