What's Included

  • See the beautiful Chianti countryside
  • A scenic winery school which highlights exquisite local produce.
  • Local wineries with beautiful views and stunning photogenic locations.
  • An afternoon in the historical medieval town of San Gimignano. 

WHERE WE VISIT

  • The scenic Chianti region.
  • Visit a local Wine Tasting School, where you taste five different wine varieties and learn to differentiate between different local produces.
  • Local winery visit to sample multiple wines in a guided vineyard tour.
  • Wal through the medieval town of Tuscany, San Gimignano.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

We begin this tour at the Tour Provider Office, followed by a stop at a Wine Tasting School, located an hour outside of Florence. Here, you will taste four different types of wines, including the famous Chianti Classico, Brunello of Montalcino, Super Tuscan wines, a 30-year-old balsamic vinegar, and the delicious truffle extra virgin olive oil. Here you will learn how to recognize the different flavours and develop your taste buds with a passionate wine producer. Don't worry, this is not a real school where you have to take notes and be tested at the end, so only fun is guaranteed!

 

 

The second stop on this tour is at a local winery, located in a stunning area facing the famous towers of San Gimignano. The winemakers will guide you through the vineyards and the cellars, and they will share the secrets of the wine and oil production as well as the best wine and food combinations. At the winery you will enjoy three wines; the famous Vernaccia white wine, a rosè wine, and a Chianti Colli Senesi D.O.C.G. You will also have the opportunity to buy local products and wine at a great price to bring back home or ship to friends and family.

 

 

In the afternoon, you will be free to spend time wandering through the narrow streets. You can also go shopping in the local stores of the historic medieval town of  San Gimignano and take in the tower filled skyline. You can relax while eating the ice cream from a world-champion gelateria. Before you head off to explore this area, maps and references to the best places to visit will be provided by your leader! 

We estimate you'll arrive back in Florence at approximately 5 pm.

 

 

Notes:

  • Make sure you have a big breakfast before coming on the tour. Lots of wine is involved, so an empty stomach is not recommended.
  • People younger than 18 are not allowed on this tour.

We promote a youth market 18-39 years old. What does this mean? Does it mean that you have just had your 40th birthday so you won't be welcome if you are a more seasoned traveler? That we are going to card you at the door? No way! 

 

It means that we have a general audience of college students, backpackers, solo travelers, etc... that often fall into this category. The tours are more fast-paced, budget-minded and include activities for travelers to meet and connect with other passengers of the same age from all parts of the world who share the same interests, lifestyles, and travel styles. 

 

We are not strict with the age limit and people older than 39 are always welcome to join our tours as long as you are young in heart, have no walking disabilities and are happy to be with younger people. 

 

Our brand is designed around this unique experience geared towards younger travelers, so only passengers that fit this demographic travel with us.

Don’t panic! The first step is to speak to your bank. All purchases made on our website will appear as purchases being made in Switzerland as our website booking provider is a Swiss-based company, so be sure your bank is aware you will be making Swiss purchases to avoid having your payment flagged as possible fraudulent activity. If you cannot resolve the problem with your bank, you should email info@italyonabudgettours.com immediately so we can proceed with a manual booking.

Let us start by saying that If you want to pay for one of your products but the Credit Card is in a different currency than the currency in which we sell our tours, then you have 2 options. This can be selected on the screen where you enter your credit card details by selecting "view currency conversion options": 

 

Option A

TrekkSoft does the currency conversion to accept the customer's currency, exchanging that into the currency in which we operate our tours.  This is called dynamic currency conversion since we display the actual USD price  (Or whatever currency your card is in) to you at the time of booking and this is the amount which is debited from your card without any further conversions or charges.

 

Option B

The card issuer ( your bank) does this currency conversion and applies a commission and processing fee. So this is when a tour is in EUR for example, and you are charged in EUR even though your credit card account is in USD. So your bank gives you an exchange rate which you will only see on your monthly statement. 

In either case, as we are not a bank, the conversion is not the same as you would see on the likes of xe.com since these are the wholesale currency values, these rates are not available to anyone in reality. 

The retail rates are always higher since there are differences in buying selling rates, and there are commissions and transaction fees when exchanging currencies. Whatever currency you pay, we will receive the amount as displayed in EUR

The hostels we collaborate with are very safe in fact in each room you can find a personal locker where you can store your valuable objects and bags. You just need to bring your own lock or sometimes you can hire it directly at the reception.
