Florence Sunset Wine Tour
From US$55.30
Overview
Experience the magic of a Tuscan sunset in Florence with a traditional Italian aperitivo on this 2-hour evening tour. Soak up the atmosphere of the Renaissance capital after dark as you follow your guide on a walking tour around the historic center and the districts of Oltrarno and San Frediano. Admire illuminated landmarks like the Ponte Vecchio, Santo Spirito church and the Duomo as you explore the city, and stop along the way to sip Chianti wine and nibble on delicious Tuscan ‘crostini’.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Florence to begin your Sunset Wine Tour and set out to explore the city at dusk. Admire the views from the iconic Ponte Vecchio and pose for photos by the riverside, then wind through the parks and piazzas of elegant Oltrarno. Follow your guide to landmarks like Santo Spirito church and Piazzale Michelangelo, and get a feel for Florentine life as you duck down the buzzing alleys and peek into lively cafés.

Continue to the hip San Frediano district, where the streets are lined with artisan shops, traditional taverns and wine bars, as your guide fills you in on the city’s social traditions. Then, make your first stop, for a typical ‘aperitivo’ at a local wine cellar, and sip a glass of wine as you watch the sunset over the city. As you sample Tuscan wines from the famous Chianti region, sate your appetite with a platter of delicious ‘crostini’, another Tuscan specialty.

Cross over the river to Florence’s historic center, where the streetlamps will be flickering into action and star attractions like the Duomo cathedral will be dramatically floodlit. After learning more about the Renaissance city, make a second stop and toast to a fun-filled evening with another glass of wine.

Not worth the time!

Lucia, our guide, was very informative and lovely. That is the positive. We met at Pointe Vecchio and then walked to our first restaurant. It was quite a distant and the long road to the restaurant was under construction so it was not a pleasant...More

Excellent Experience

Martina was our tour guide for our small group of about ten and was great. She was extremely knowledgable about little known histories around Florence and a lot of fun to be around. We had the chance to sample about 5 wines and had some...More

Room for improvement

I have mixed feelings about this tour. It has real potential but in its current state it has some issues in my opinion. The first and only location where you actually sit down to taste several wines is inside a very small tiled room separate...More
