My friend Nancy Ferragine has some interesting walk and wine tours in Europe for next summer. She has three of them, but one involves Chianti and southern Tuscany. I must say that Chianti is one of my favourite wines. She describes this tip on her website.
With its Renaissance cities, mediaeval villages and cypress lined avenues snaking through vineyards, southern Tuscany is the perfect place for a relaxed walking tour. Based at the tranquil Villa Casalta, we visit beautiful San Gimignano, the market town of Greve in Chianti, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Siena and the magnificent city of Florence. During the week we sample several varieties of the world-renowned local Chianti and have the opportunity to learn more about Italian wines at the Wine School of Siena.
If you like wine and walking perhaps you should check it out.
