    So what is a 'Slow day'?

    Our approach to holidays at Slow-Days is to put the quality of the experience first and foremost. A holiday should not be a list of check boxes to tick off, but a time to enjoy, regain your energies, experience other cultures, learn some history, meet new people and maybe even make new friends.

    Large tour groups will never be able to give this individual experience, or be flexible enough to stop the vehicle when you want to.

    Your day starts at 9.30am at the meeting point. From there we head straight to the family-owned vineyard. After a leisurely wine tasting and the opportunity to learn about chianti wines, we go on foot through the vines and olive orchards to the Medieval hill town.

    Lunch at a family run slow-food restaurant is for many one of the highlights of the day. For those wanting to taste the typical local recipes that have made Tuscany renowned for foodies the world over this is for you!

    In the afternoon you will be able to explore one of Tuscany's most charming villages, with a piazza where the wine harvest is held each year, arcades of artisan shops and local produce.

    Time permitting we may fit in another wine tasting or visit a local castle.

    The day is finished off with drive through the hills of chianti before being dropped-off in central Florence by 5.00pm.
