Tours of Chianti: the area of Tuscany famous for the best red wine of Italy, small villages and amazing landscapes...
The viability in Chianti is excellent today and the roads do not invite you to speed up but to enjoy the landscapes in a succession of ups and downs.
In this way, you will discover the wonders of a land that is home of the vineyards from which comes the worldwide known Chianti red wine.
Moreover, in this area we offer you a great variety of activities, which include obviously food and wine tasting: in fact, you can’t miss to try red wine Vino Nobile DOCG, the Chianti Olive Oil and the typical pastries (like the famous panforte).
Perhaps not everyone knows that one of the first protagonists of the cinema to mention Chianti was … James Bond! In the movie “From Russia with Love” (1963) a spy pretends to be an English gentleman ordering a glass of Chianti together with a fish dish. Bond (played by Sean Connery) draws the gun and threatens the man, explaining that no gentleman would ever order a Chianti with fish!
The tours of romeanditaly group will stop in some panoramic points, from where it will be possible to take pictures that will remain indelible and unique images in your memories!
In the history of the Chianti region there is a legend which tells how “Siena” and “Florence” competed for the dominance of the region so, to solve the question regarding the borders of the region, was declared a speed race between two knights: one had to start from Florence and the other from Siena, then the meeting place would become the border of both cities. It was a speed race so the first one who woke up at the rooster’s crow would have the advantage over the other. The Florentine, in order to win the race and win most of the territory, fasted the rooster, which, exhausted by hunger, sang first, waking the knight before time. He left first, meeting the adversary in the territory of Castellina and there the border was established, later called Croce Fiorentina, near Siena. From here the famous symbol of the Black Rooster of Chianti.
