Chianti wine and food, culture and heritage offering visitors the chance to meet the personalities behind the wine industry. Your tour driver will welcome you at the dock beside your cruise ship in Livorno, to explore the beautiful hill country of the Chianti region.
You will enjoy a scenic drive through the countryside rolling hills dotted by vineyards, cypress trees, olive trees and Medieval villages, castles and fortresses. Your first stop will be at Greve in Chianti, the main capital of the wine region that boasts a friendly atmosphere with its attractive features and countless wine bars, called Enoteca which offer local wine and olive-oil tastings.
