DAY 4 – Monday, April 13, 2015
Bid farewell to Rome, Hello Tuscany
Following an early breakfast we’re off to the newly remodeled Roman Train station where your first class speed train will whisk you out of the hustle and bustle of Rome and into the relaxing rolling hills of Lazio and Tuscany
Upon arrival at the station in Florence, we will immediately board our motor coaches heading to the Chianti region of Tuscany. We’ll visit the Castello di Verrazzano, situated in the heart of the stunning Chianti region, and experience a lively, entertaining and interactive day of wine tasting and lunch!
This hilltop estate was originally the ancestral seat of the Verrazzano family, who acquired the site in the seventh century. Giovanni da Verrazzano discovered New York; the Verrazzano Bridge in New York is dedicated to him for this honor.
A visit provides a true insight into the workings of a great Tuscan country estate, including a tour of the gardens, wine production and the enormous age-old cellars themselves. After the tour, we’ll have lunch in true Tuscan style.
Return to Florence to check in to our hotel
Rest of the evening at your leisure
