Have your Driver guide come and pick you up from your accommodation at 9:30am for the start of your transfer tour. As a first stop, visit the imposing fortress of Monteriggioni, a medieval village with complete ring of walls, built by the Sienese in the 13th century as a bastion of defense in their wars against Florence. It withstood all attacks from both the Florentines and the forces of the Bishop of Volterra until its keys were finally handed by the town’s captain over to the Medicean forces in an act of reconciliation.

After lunch continue into the Chianti Classico on panorimic Chianti roads and arrive to the town of Greve in Chianti, famous for its oval square filled with artisan’s shops and wine stores and for being the home town of the famous sailor Verrazzano.
