If you've ever done a wine tour, you'll know that sometimes they can be stuffy and even a little intimidating. Our Secret Urban Wine Tours: Florence is a completely different and unique experience, designed for learning about and tasting wine in an atmosphere that is comfortable and relaxing.
We want you to ask questions, enjoy your experience, sample new varieties, and finish the tour with an appreciation of Tuscan wines. Our goal is to introduce you to our wine regions and the wines they produce, while providing a fun and memorable experience. Remember, the best wines are the ones you enjoy, and every glass of wine tastes better when you're sharing it with friends. Our guide is a great added value and will make your wine experience unforgettable.

WHY OLD CITY CENTER?
We selected Florence's Old City Center and Oltrarno because walking through these two neighborhoods feels like walking through two different villages; noble, medieval, and renaissance palaces and churches, people from around the world walking and getting lost in the back streets; the beauty or art spread everywhere and artisans working inside their craft shop, reminding us a centenary long-lasting tradition.
Oltrarno is an area where the traditional restaurants have resisted the tides of globalization. Its own identity, history, culture, and ambiance have been maintained and cultivated over hundreds of years, making this the perfect place to experience the authentic, delicious wines that Florence has to offer.
