Get a Taste of the Tuscan Countryside

Travel & Tourism
While you’re sure to get a glimpse into Tuscany’s best architectural and artistic gems when you visit Florence, walking tours and other popular excursions in and around city generally miss out on two of the region’s major perks: its world-famous wines and olive oils. In order to experience these Tuscan troves, you’ll have to venture away from Florence’s hoards of tourists and into the surrounding countryside, whose bucolic landscapes are reason enough to go off the beaten track.

If you’re looking for an excursion that combines exceptional sights and exceptional tastes, a wine and olive oil tasting tour in the Tuscan countryside ticks all of the boxes. Here’s what you can – and should – expect from a reputable guided outing.

Say “Buongiorno” to Stunning Scenery

After getting their bearings on a Florence walking tour, visitors often follow up this outing with a wine and olive oil tasting in the afternoon. At this time of the day, you have the best chance of experiencing the Tuscan countryside in its complete, sundrenched glory.

While it’s possible to go on a hike, this option – while beautiful – is not time-effective when you’re trying to make the most of your Italian getaway. Instead, I recommend that you book a tour that’ll take you up to the panoramic peeks of the Tuscan hills in a clean and comfy minivan. This method of transportation will enable you to see the scenic sights of the region in an effortless and timely manner. Why not snap some photos to immortalise your experience?

Say “Wow” to Natural and Cultural Exploration

Although you’ll begin by exploring the countryside in a minivan, don’t worry: you’ll have plenty of time to experience the wonders of the area firsthand. There are several Tuscan villas that are nestled in the region’s rolling hills, and the best tours will arrange for you to visit these. From these historic spots, you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view of the surrounding natural scenery, and will also receive a guided tour of the properties, which are owned by Italy’s nobility.

Say “Delizioso” to Tuscan Wine and Olive Oil

While the first two parts of these rural excursions appeal to nature, history and architecture lovers, the final element is sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Along with learning about the villa’s on-site vineyards and wineries (and, in some cases, olive mills), you’ll be able to taste the region’s award-winning Chianti wines. If you’re not an oenophile yet, you’re certain to become one after the English-speaking wine experts share their passion for these full-bodied reds with you.

In addition to getting an insider glimpse into the villas’ production of Chianti wines, you’ll learn a thing or two about the region’s extra virgin olive oil, which is best enjoyed on a piece of fresh Italian bread. While you may think that the difference between your local supermarket’s extra virgin olive oil and Tuscany’s is minimal, you’ll definitely change your opinion upon sampling this local delicacy. Make sure to leave some room in your suitcase for bottles of wine and olive oil – trust me, you’ll need it!

Say “Cin Cin” and “Buon Appetito” on a Tasting Tour

If you’re ready to feast your eyes and palate on Tuscan treasures, go beyond the basic introduction that you’ll receive on a Florence walking tour. To experience the sights and tastes of rural Tuscany, why not sign up for our guided Wines of Nobility Tour? After this exciting and delicious experience, you’ll emerge an expert on the region’s natural and gastronomic delights – in only four hours!
