Wine Tasting

by schnurman

My wife and I will be in Florence in May and would appreciate if anyone could suggest a one day wine tasting tour for us in the Tuscany countryside.

Thanks.

If you're interested in Chianti country and vineyards, could try this:

They organize half or full day tours with a winemaker as private guide.

Hi,

Below are a few suggestions.

www.vespalab.com/ing_chianti.htm: This site offers various tours of Tuscany via the Vespa! One tour includes wine tasting the Chianti region.

www.tuscanway.com: This site has a variety of activities which includes a choice of two wine tours. Also included are cooking classes, yoga, and wellness.

www.vinaio.com/en/travel.asp: Offers wine tasting (a few hours) and wine tours in Florentine enotecas (wine bars) and Tuscan wineries.

Also...you might be interested in participating in the "Open Cantina." It usually happens in May. You can see the website below for more info. My Godmother goes every year and the winery she visits organizes a half day walking tour. They will walk the vineyard and make little stops for appetizers and wine tasting.

Hope this helps...have fun!

Travel Tips for Florence

GO TO THE 'PIAZZA DELLA...

by chantalb99

GO TO THE 'PIAZZA DELLA SIGNORA' AND SEE THE 'PONTE VECCHIO', FOR ME WAS INCREDIBLE, THAT PLACES,ARE FULL OF HISTORY AND BEAUTY, SCULPTURES OF DANTE, DA VINCI, MIGUEL ANGELO, MANY IMPORTANT ARTISTS THAT GAVE US ALL THE IMPORTANT THINGS TO THE UNIVERSAL CULTURE, IS VERY IMPRESSIVE, IF YOU LIKE THE MUSEUMS, THE HISTORY, AND WANT TO BE WISDOM, (OUT OF TIME OF COURSE), OF THE UNIVERSAL HISTORY,
MUST TO GO THERE AND SEE ALL! I MISS SO MUCH THE SIGHT OF THE 'FIUME ARNO', FROM THE 'PONTE VECCHIO', WOW, ITS INCREDIBLE, I WOULD BE THERE FOR HOURS, JUST SEEING THE RIVER, THE SUNSET, THE ATMOSPHERE, SO MUCH TOURIST WALKING ALONG OF THE SINGULAR BRIDGE, THAT SCENE NEVER I FORGET IT.

Casa Guidi

by fgfi

At the corner of the Via Maggio and the Via Romana, close the Palazzo Pitti, stands a literary residence in Florence, the "Casa Guidi" where the poet Robert Browning and his wife Elizabeth Barrett Browning lived from 1847 to 1861. Between 3pm and 5pm, ring the bell and enjoy the ambience of the couples home, furnished with their flea market finds, typical example of 19th century style.

Very efficient

by micajo

The principal public transportation netwrok within the city is run by the ATAF and Li-nea bus company, with tickets available at local tobacconists, bars and newspaper stalls.

Trenitalia runs trains between the railway stations within the city, and to other destinations around Italy and Europe. The central station, Santa Maria Novella Station, is located about 500 metres NW of Piazza del Duomo.

The centre of the city is closed to through-traffic, although buses, taxis and residents with appropriate permits are allowed in. Within the city walls places can easily be reached by foot

Famous cafe

by m-joy about Cafe Gilli

Cafe Gilli is one of the most famous old cafes in Florence, situated at the central place called Plaza delle Republica. You can either have a cafelatte, etc. outside in the sun for a horrible price or take one at the bar inside. This café is a good place to watch the dressed up people of Florence and enjoy the old-fashioned, luxurious ambiente of this café. caffelatte - inside!!!! (...i'm not crazy...)
