2017-09-20PHENOMENAL EXPERIENCE - Truffle and Wine
We chose this tour among several tempting tours in Florence because of the unique combo of a truffle hunting excursion, truffle-themed lunch, and a tour of a Chianti-region winery (not to mention meeting an adorably truffle-hunting dog!). The day was very well-paced, and our tour guide, Hillary, was extremely helpful in imparting her knowledge of Chianti wines and regional flavors! Having worked in the wine industry and being a sommelier, Hillary was great at helping us figure out the best wines (also prosciutto and olive oil) to try while in Tuscany. We left the 6-hour excursion with a new outlook on the Tuscan food, wine, arts, and even fashion culture (did you know some of the biggest Italian fashion families live in Florence? We didn't, but Hillary was great at filling us in!) If you enjoy learning as much as we do, you shouldn't miss out on this tour!
