From there, on the way to San Gimignano, travel through the beautiful Tuscan countryside with your own personal guide. Travel past vineyards and olive groves, as you take in the gorgeous landscape of one of the most prestigious winemaking regions in the world.

San Gimignano


The first stop on this Tuscany shore excursion is an incredible place known as “Medieval Manhattan”. Situated on a hill, San Gimignano is a 10th-century town famous for its tall medieval towers. The surviving towers rise above the small houses and resemble skyscrapers from a distance. The main gate to the walled city dates back to the 13th century - since 1990 the historic city center has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Enjoy some time to wander around, shop, relax on the church steps or sit down for a local breakfast (food in San Gimignano is not included in the price of the Shore Excursion).

Chianti Farmhouse


Your next stop is an organic farmhouse in the heart of Chianti. Tour the farm and meet the owner, before sampling some extra-virgin oil, Chianti wine and truffle oil. Taste locally-grown products from the family's farm for a typical lunch of antipasto, primo, contorno more wine and a sweet snack to finish. Staying true to the Italian slow food movement, these Italian delicacies are sure to please your stomach. 

Visit a Vineyard for More Wine Tasting

The adventure continues to another winery for a tour of the vineyard and a chance to learn more about the rich art of winemaking. Tour the vineyard and learn more about the rich art of winemaking. Afterward, sample the estate’s biodynamic/organic wines for a true taste of the Tuscan countryside. The wine tasting is included. After the second vineyard, enjoy the comfortable drive back to Livorno. After all that beauty and wine, you’ll be happy to get back to your boat and get some rest.
