Choose your mode of transport for the most exhilarating tours and trips.
Hop into one of our delightful FIAT 500 or onto a bright red Vespa for a drive up the windy road to San Gimignano or around the local hill towns.
As an alternative, relax in a chauffeur driven vintage car or luxury limousine to tour the local wineries. Our concierge will recommend wineries from Italy’s most renowned appellations such as Chianti Classico or Brunello di Montalcino, which also has a fine Extra Virgin Olive Oil to taste.
Gastronomes will certainly want to join a walking truffle hunt in the local forests, or explore the beautiful Tuscan scenery on horseback, through vineyards and shady olive groves. Guests will frequently spot wildlife, deer, pheasant and boar.
Nestled amongst the gentle Tuscan hills, Castello del Nero is the ideal place to start exploring the region from. Helicopter Tours to take in the heart of Chianti and its castles, also offer the possibility of landing and stopping for a wine tasting or a visit. There is also the possibility of Tours on the shore and a transfer service. Hot air balloons are another great option and offer a spectacular perspective of the Chianti countryside, with the take off point only a few minutes from the castle.
Our complimentary shuttle service takes you to Florence and Siena at scheduled times. Admire treasures by Botticelli, Michelangelo and Da Vinci, the architectural wonder of Brunelleschi’s dome, the shell shaped Medieval Piazza del Campo, and Siena’s Tuscan black and white cathedral, surely one of the most striking buildings in the world.
