Customers review
Our Wine Tasting and Tuscany Sunset Dinner in Montecarlo was outstanding! We had a private tour getting all the attention. The WINE tasting emphasized local foods with extra virgin olive oil and the 4 Super Tuscan wines were delicious.  From the wineyard, we traveled by van into the medieval village of Montecarlo for a four-course meal ... LOTS of delicious food and overall, a wonderful evening.  Our guide Tanya, was just excellent!

All I can say is AWESOME. We did the Siena, Chianti, Cinque Terre and several other tours through Come and See Italy and in comparison with every tour group we have ever used in any of our travels this is by far THE BEST. We had the best tour guides that were all very knowledgeable, personable, and went out of their way to make our trips a true experience. Unlike so many tours we have taken, we were given plenty of time to explore on our own so that we could see the things that we were interested in and were directed to the best of the best by our guide. Everything ran on time and we could have not asked for a better experience. If you are visiting this area of Italy, do not consider any other tour company other than this. It doesn't get any better!! Thanks so much for making our visit most enjoyable and memorable.

We'll reach San Gimignano, one of the most famous Tuscan hamlets, renowned  for its ancient towers that form a picturesque skyline. In about 2 hours you can enjoy a pleasant walk in the typical tiny medieval streets. Entering from the main gate – Porta S. Giovanni- you can discover the two main squares. Piazza della Cisterna and the Collegiata square. This is where all the pilgrims used to stop and where the merchants exchanged their goods in the medieval times.

After the visit of S.Gimignano, we'll then head toward a typical Chianti wine estate where you'll have a chance to taste some of the best Chianti classico riserva wines combined with bruschetta, salami, cheese, biscuits and sweet dessert wine, surronded by the beauty of the sweet Tuscan hills.

After this joyful and tasty stop, we'll follow to Volterra village which is even older than the previous one. In fact, this village bears important witnesses to its Etruscan foundation and it can also boast elegant and beautiful Medieval buildings, as well as Roman remains in the surroundings. Perched high up on a hill top, the town offers a spectacular view of olive groves and vineyards. Volterra is famous for the Alabaster stone: similar to the marble, but much more transparent. In fact the cathedral has alabaster instead of windows. Here you can discover how the alabaster is worked in one of the big craftsmen studios.

This tour will let you head back in time but no worries: you'll be on 'present' time to Livorno port  as prearranged.
