What a fun day this was! Riding in the vintage Fiat 500 with my husband and 9 year old son, along with Duccho, our spirited, English speaking driver, was the best way for us to see the Chianti region. Driving through the windy roads while following the rest of our group on vespas and e-bikes was quite an adventure. We stopped in a quaint little village- Castellina in Chianti, then on to a wine tasting and lunch at Poggio Amorelli vineyard, which was lovely, as we sat with the rest of our group and shared our vacation stories.We were scheduled to visit a 2nd village, but there were heavy thunderstorms, so the whole group headed over to Gelateria Castellina, where I had the most unbelievable Stracciatella gelato! A point of note- When booking this tour, if you want a driver to be provided, be sure to select tour # TG19. There was some confusion about our initial booking, as they thought we wanted to drive the vehicle ourselves. Everything worked out in the end.Also, the description of the tour says its from San Gimignano. We were picked up from our SG hotel in a van and taken to the departure point 30 minutes away. This was unexpected, and the only reason I mention it is because the van driver was speeding almost the while time. I was very uneasy during that journey.I highly recommend this tour. A great way to see the area if you aren't renting your own vehicle.
Absolutely loved this tour! Such a unique way of seeing the Tuscany countryside. The areas/ villages we visited and passed through were so beautiful and gave us a great overall feel for the area. Lunch was also fantastic and felt like a real Italian experience. Highly recommend this fun and unique tour!
