Hiking and Picnic in Tuscany
About this experience
Come and see Tuscany's most genuine heart away-from-the-crowds and off-beaten-path: join us and hike across the beautiful Chianti countryside!
We will depart from the center of Florence aboard our comfortable minivan for a pleasant 20-minute drive.
Our first stop will be a visit to an antique olive oil mill, along the way: part of a splendid countryside estate it possesses both old-fashioned characteristics and modern technology and produces exquisite gourmet extra-virgin olive oil. You will learn about the centuries-old olive oil ritual and the pressing process, we will enjoy tasting the unique, full, taste of the estate oil. A real Tuscan delight!
After that, you are going to meet your lovely hiking guide, a knowledgeable and friendly environmental specialist, and you together will set off for an unforgettable journey along a superbly various trail.
You will walk up sloping hills and down to flourishing valleys dotted by olive trees and vineyards.
You will notice the diversity of the rock configurations you see - limestone, arenaria, and terracotta - and learn their unique characteristics.
Then, enjoy a welcome break in the cool shadow of centuries-old oak trees and cypresses to chill out and sample a tasty picnic snack, and hike on, to reach your final stop: a beautiful, small, boutique winery.
We will discover the small cellar where their excellent wines are produced, learn all about wine production techniques, and the secrets that lie behind the most high-priced blends.
At the end of the tour, we are going to have a typical Tuscan lunch: specialty local dishes will be served matched with the excellent blends of the winery you visited.
