What To Expect

Meet with your driver guide in Santa Maria Novella Square at approx. 8am. After a short introduction of the day, you will start heading towards the so called "coast of the Etruscans". We will first visit the Gulf of Baratti, one of the nicest places along the Tuscan coast, where you will appreciate the beauty of the Mediterranean sea. Here there was one of the most important cities of the Etruscans, Populonia.

Before lunch we will go to the lovely village of Bolgheri, a charming town famous for its wines, first of all the Sassicaia, considered to be one of the best Super Tuscan wines of Tuscany. In this wine area, they successfully combine tradition with modern technology and new grapes.

At lunch time we will take you to a local winery for a great wine and food experience, where you can have the possibility to taste Super Tuscan wines and have a light lunch at the estate.

Next we'll move on to Volterra, one of the oldest Italian towns, built by the Etruscan people in the VII century BC, nowadays a charming medieval hill town also known for the production of alabaster (and the setting of the "Twilight" movie). Here you will have free time to stroll around the medieval narrow streets on your own, where you can breathe centuries of history, visit the traditional shops with the alabaster hand-made crafts, or visit the archeological museum and the Roman theatre.

At about 5:00pm we will start driving back to Florence, arriving at approx. 6pm.
