Begin your exploration of the Tuscany region by taking in the historical architecture, quaint villages, and beautiful landscapes of this magnificent part of the world.

Most people have heard of the Chianti wine region, but until you have visited it yourself, you have no idea how wonderful it is! A trip to the Chianti area is a unique experience that will engage all of your senses. Walk amongst the orderly vines and silvery olive groves, breathe the perfume of fermentation in the cellars, and then taste the wine and you will understand why Chianti is so famous all over the world.

After a pick up from the cruise pier and a 2.5 hours drive through the Tuscan region, you'll find yourself on the Chianti Wine Road amidst the lush, rolling countryside, artfully etched with vineyards, orchards, farmhouses, and cypress trees.

The villages on our itinerary will give you an array of architectural eye-candy and a glimpse into Italy’s past, covering the gamut from the Etruscans to the Romans to the Medieval.

We'll begin with a stop in the capital of the region, Greve in Chianti, with its lovely porticoes and an array of interesting shops and boutiques. History buffs will note the monument to Giovanni da Verrazzano, the explorer of the Atlantic coast of North America who discovered, among other things, the Hudson River.

Here you will enjoy a visit to local shops, wine cellars, and our favorite butcher shop.

In the afternoon, we'll return through the Tuscan countryside with a visit to Panzano and if time permits, Castellina in Chianti, which boasts both Etruscan and Roman roots.
