What’s a trip to Italy without having some amazing ruby red super Tuscan wines from the Tuscany region? Florence is a common stop in many Italian travel itineraries and is the perfect home base to leave on a day or half-day wine tour adventure! Why coordinate transit and specific wineries to go to yourself? Tuscany wine tours are a way to have a relaxing day in the beautiful wine region in central Italy.
Can you take a train from Florence to Tuscany? Technically, yes you could take a train from Florence to Siena for example but there’s no easy way to get to the wineries unless you drive or hire a driver from there. This is an option, although it requires much more planning and logistics. So, I highly recommend taking a wine tour from Florence to Tuscany. It makes it a much more enjoyable experience! You can truly relax while the details and navigation is handled by a local.
There are many different types of wine tours. You may prefer a private wine tour of Tuscany vs. a small group wine tour. Both private wine tours of Tuscany from Florence and wine tours of Tuscany from Florence are included below so keep reading!
