Enjoy a sojourn in the heart of Chianti, away from the crowded hustle of Florence. Along little used trails and backroads, you arrive at hilltop towns with lovely views over the small wine estates and the wooded hills. Stop to sample the wines and enjoy authentic, delicious Tuscan feasts. There are castles to explore, some of them hosting highly regarded wineries, others abandoned among the forests, as well as country churches shyly hiding some remarkable art. This is the authentic Chianti which few know about: an idyllic terrain of vineyards and lush woods, sprinkled with quaint farmhouses and quiet villas.

The walking tour with Luca was superb. He was absolutely perfect, and I hope we can hike with him again someday. The hike in Volpaia was great and we had a wonderful lunch at the Castella de Volpaia. We hiked in Lamole and did a fabulous hike. He took us to the local winery there where we had a private tour in a tiny shop and even tasted the wine which would be released in October. We were definately sad to say goodbye to Luca who was our favorite part of the trip.

We wanted to express our thanks to Girosole for making our vacation one of the most memorable. Luca was the most wonderful guide. His knowledge, charm, enthusiasm and connection to the roots of the beautiful area of Chianti made our daily adventures in the region special. We experienced many of the secrets in Chianti. To Girosole and Luca, thank you for making our vacation the best!
