This thrilling off-road Tuscany countryside tour begins in the city of Florence. You’ll meet your professional driver guide and depart the centre, where your rumbling 4x4 will start to show what it can do. Travel along winding roads lined by swaying cypress trees to your first stop. You’ll be able to explore the grounds and wander through the mysterious cellars before jumping back in the Land Rover.

The farmhouse is just the beginning of it. The next stops along Tuscany’s silent hilltop roads include quaint villages, golden meadows, vineyards and a magnificent ancient abbey dating back to the 13th century. There’ll be plenty of photo opportunities and you’ll stop alongside a field for a picnic and some fabulous local wines.
Explore a winery set in a majestic medieval castle
The highlight of your full day Tuscany wine tour with lunch is of course… lunch. But it’s where you’re having it that makes it truly memorable! The penultimate stop of the day is a famous winery inside a majestic medieval castle. Rising above the surrounding countryside with its turrets and merlons, you’ll feel like the King or Queen of the Chianti hills! It’s here that you’ll sample a three-course Tuscan lunch along with fine Chianti wines. Then, it’s onto your last stop of the day, a boutique winery. Once you’ve had room to let your lunch settle, you’ll be able to taste the winery’s amazing products before heading back to Florence, admiring the amazing views from the car window.
