What to Expect

Sprawling vineyards, olive trees and cypresses surrounding churches, parishes, castles and villages hidden among the hills, all add up to the Chianti Classico wine region being one of the best places to visit in Tuscany with kids. From the stunning scenery to wineries where kids receive a warm welcome, discover the many treasures this incredible region holds for travelers of all ages. Designed for children and their lucky parents, this carefully planned family friendly Tuscany wine tour will engage the whole clan with local wineries and striking natural beauty.

 

Treat your tribe to an enjoyable adventure that will last forever in your memory. The Tuscan countryside offers fun distractions for adults and kids. It makes for a spectacular road trip with unspoiled views and medieval hill towns to stop by. But families can also learn how grapes are turned into wine, how wine gets its color and how long it takes to produce. Among the large historic properties and smaller boutique wineries in the region, we arrange visits to vineyards and farms where kids are welcome and parents can indulge in tastings.

Tuscany Family Adventure from Florence

Families visiting Florence can’t resist the allure of the Chianti wine region, and for good reason. The area renowned for its exceptional wines is also home to monumental castles, medieval farmhouses and ancient hill-towns many of which remain almost exactly as they were in the 1300’s. The Chianti is also well known for having an array of kid-friendly wineries that will be perfect for a day trip for the family.

 

There is so much on offer in this region that it is impossible to just set out one standard itinerary. For our family friendly Tuscany wine tour, there are a few must do’s (in our opinion!) that we need to hit on this day tour such as two kid-friendly wineries and a visit to one of the fabulous hamlets. You will travel via one of the best scenic roads in the whole of Tuscany with one of our experienced driver-guides who in addition to navigating for you will introduce to the region ensuring that your day is smooth and enjoyable.

Tour FAQs

How many wineries will we visit?

For the optimal day, you will visit two of the best wineries in the area. That is a reasonable number of wineries to enjoy a relaxed visit with personal attention and an unhurried pace. Talk with the grape growers, savor the delectable differences between the wines, and enjoy the surroundings.

How long will we spend at each winery?

No set time. Some winery experiences take longer than others. The average is about 60-90 minutes at each winery for the full experience, as you see firsthand where wine is produced, learn about wine making, and taste some of the estates' wines.

Which wineries will we visit?

We usually do not know in advance. We do not have just one set of wineries that we visit, as there are so many great ones! Wine tasting options in Tuscany are endless so we have a list of family-friendly wineries selected by us with our overall criteria being great tasting experiences, beautiful vineyard settings, and friendly hospitality. Visits are mostly by appointment only. We arrange winery reservations based on several factors, some of which include, your wine preferences, the time of year, the day of the week and available wineries for the day (as they all have different days of operation and special event scheduling).

Are tasting fees included?

No, they are not. We work with different wineries, each with its own unique pricing and experiences. Because each wine tasting tour is unique to each party, each tour will have different tasting fees. The wine tasting fees will be collected at each stop by the winery. Tasting fees are your responsibility and they typically start from Euro 20 and upward per person per winery depending on your choice.

What are my options for lunch?

The choice is yours. You can have a farm to table experience at one of the two wineries or you can have lunch at one of the many great restaurants in the area but the cost of the meal is not included.

Who are your driver-guides?

Our local driver-guides are licensed tour escorts and professional chauffeurs with several years of experience in sharing their insider knowledge of regional culture with our clients. They’re all gifted storytellers who are smart, passionate and talented and whose excitement for this region is contagious!
