Visiting Tuscany means getting in contact with one of the most famous geniuses of all times: Leonardo da Vinci. Vinci, the birthplace of this maestro, is a picturesque medieval gem surrounded by olive groves and guarded by a sturdy fortress. Our private tour takes you to one of the best wineries near Vinci for an excellent lunch paired with an exquisite wine tasting experience.

In the afternoon we will move to the historical center of Vinci for a short visit. Experience the essence of Tuscany, where art, history, and the pleasures of the palate converge for an unforgettable day!



A magnificent Medicean villa and its historical cellar with wine tasting
The tour starts at a spectacular 16th century Medicean villa, located just 20 minutes from the town, where a renowned winery has its premises. It is a charming historical chalet that the Medici family from Florence used as a hunting mansion. Nowadays the property is a charming location for wedding ceremonies and wine events. The basement of the villa hosts a fascinating historical cellar which was wisely restored and turned into a sort of museum of old winemaking techniques and instruments. Your tour leader and a local guide will show you the fascinating production rooms in a particularly relaxing atmosphere.
At the end of the visit, you sit in a very elegant tasting room where a delicious full lunch is served paired with a tasting of 4 different wines.

After lunch, you’ll venture into the medieval town of Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo, the world-famous genius. Highlights of the visit include a reproduction of the renowned “Uomo Vitruviano”, also the baptismal font where Leonardo was baptized, and a charming square dedicated to the genius. Conclude your exploration with a guided tasting of traditional and artisanal gelato at a local gelato workshop.

This is a message from Roxanne who enjoyed a tour throughout Tuscany with Massimo

Good afternoon

We booked 2 days of tours with you last November and I’m not sure if I ever let you know how much we enjoyed the tours-especially Mossimo’s company.  We did a day trip to the chocolate  making in San Miniato and then Vinci.  The next day we toured Pisa and Lucca.  The kids really enjoyed the chocolate making.  I have pictures I can send if you are interested in seeing them.  Thanks again and any time I hear of someone traveling your way, I recommend your company.
