About
Away from tourist routes, from Florence we will drive you in one of our comfortable vehicles to a quintessentially Tuscan area. We will visit medieval towns and some of the best-known boutique wineries. Those producers make up for their small production numbers by crafting superb quality wines with great passion. The owners of these wineries will personally accompany you through the vineyards so you can see where and how Sangiovese grapes grow. They will reveal pearls of country wisdom, tell you about the difficulties of working the land, and share stories of what it is like to produce a wine that graces tables around the world. This tour is special because it allows you to discover smaller, niche producers. Lunch at a winery or in a small osteria is a must – Chianti wines are meant to be enjoyed with the delicious dishes of Tuscan cuisine. Wine and food will delight both your palate and heart! Professional licensed guide in towns not included but eventually available on request.

Excellent wine tour with Azzurra
Oct 2021
My dad and I travelled with Azzurra on a private wine tour in the Chianti region to two different wineries - one medium sized and one small sized. Azzurra was so passionate about the regions and was incredibly knowledgeable and was able to answer all of the questions we had.

From the regions, to the wines, to the vineyards themselves, Azzurra hosted a perfect tour for the Tuscan region. The wineries she chose were top-notch and in addition to the wine-tasting, the food was excellent.

Azzurra picked us up from where we were staying in a comfortable, clean and roomy car, and was an excellent driver. She made sure to stop at the sights / view points along the way, which we really appreciated. She also dropped us off at our location.

Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tuscany that is interested in food, wine, gorgeous views and good company!

Best day!
A beautiful day spent in the Chianti hills with the very knowledgeable and warm Azzurra. We loved the structure of the tour which included visits to small villages, a market, stops at beautiful vistas, and of course, the wineries. The wines were delicious! The winemakers and staff shared interesting details about the history of their wines and processes. The lunch at one boutique winery was perfect. Lunch on a terrace with 360 views of the mountains and vines with traditional Tuscan dishes was a dream. 20/10!

Sep 2020 • Couples
Thank you Azzurra for this wonderfull day!

It was really a personal experience and more than we expected. The tour was planned with lovely details and gave us an authentic view of Chianti. You notice that Azzurra is passionate about what she is doing and her fascination with her home region is heartwarming!

We will surely come back!

The highlight of the trip
Jul 2019
We had an extended family vacation, with 3 adults and 2 children. Christian and Azzurra made our days in Tuscany the highlight of our trip. They took us to boutique wineries that were very high quality that you just wouldn't have found on your own (so good that we continue to order wine from them). They made the trip fun for the adults and kids because of their knowledge of the area and the history. Christian and Azzurra really made this a fantastic trip.

The Wine Tour You Imagined! None Better
Jul 2019
I have taken three trips with Christian and Azzurra of Viaggi d'Ambra and each one has been uniquely tailored to exactly what I wanted to do in Italy. Moreover, Christian and Azzurra go the extra mile to help you thoroughly explore Italy, taste amazing cuisine, and meet people who you will never forget. Even if you know Chianti Classico and the amazing wines of Tuscany, this very special trip will introduce you to new experiences, acquaint you with families who have made wine for generations, and allow you to taste truly fantastic wines in some of the most idyllic settings imaginable. I cannot recommend this tour and Viaggi d'Ambra higher. I continue to go back to my friends, Christian and Azzurra, because they offer tours you cannot find elsewhere and have become like family.

Wonderful Family Holiday
May 2019
We are a family of 5, three boys all in their 20's and we were fortunate enough to have Azzurra and Christians as tour guides for three wonderful days. Every trip, every minute and every activity was made even better by their knowledge, their attention to detail and their enthusiasm for Italy.

We would all recommend Viaggi D'Ambra to anyone who wants to truly experience Florence and what it has to offer.

An unforgettable Italian experience because of Viaggi D’Ambra
Sep 2019
Viaggi D’ambra was recommended to us for the first time a few years ago when we were planning a family trip to Italy. We were going to be in Florence for a few days and wanted to experience Tuscany and some wineries in the Chianti Classico region. From the beginning of our touch base, Azzura was so easy to deal with and it was clear that we made the right decision to use the services of Viaggi D’Ambra. Azzura picked us up in front of our hotel in Florence. Everything was perfect. She is so lovely and warm and we spent the day learning so much from her. We stopped along the way in a few small towns including Greve, as she knew that I wanted to shop a little and loved pottery. In Greve, there was a small but beautiful pottery store where I purchased gorgeous bowls and salt/pepper shakers made from olive wood. We visited two wineries and ate lunch at one of them which was the home of the vineyard owners. We sat on their balcony overlooking their beautiful vineyard while they served us a delicious homemade Italian lunch paired with wine tastings. It was one of the highlights of our incredible trip.
Last year, my husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and chose to celebrate it with a 2 week trip to Sicily. Christian, from Viaggi D’ambra is from Sicily and we would not trust anyone else to plan our trip. All the recommendations of where to go, stay and the drivers were all perfect. For both trips, we worked very closely with Viaggi D’ambra to put together an experience that was designed around what we wanted. I cannot say enough of how wonderful they are to work with. They are warm, lovely to deal with and their service is top notch. Italy is one of our favorite places and when we return again, we will look to Azzura and Christian for guidance again.

Wine and Food in the Tuscan Hills
We spent a gorgeous day led by Azzurra and Christian driving from Siena where we stayed to the heart of Tuscany interesting the beautiful hills above Greve in Chianti. We visited the Altiero boutique winery. Our guides know the family very well and have brought other travelers here as well so we knew we would have an enjoyable day! The weather was beautiful for the beginning of December. The views were spectacular. The owner gave us a brief wine tour where we learned about the wine making process. It was all very private. After that we went up to a beautiful terrazzo with the most gorgeous view of mountains filled with olive trees. Our lovely female host served delicious homemade cheeses, wine and preserves and honey. Everything was delicious and friendly. She showed the children how to make fresh pasta, sauce Bolognese and a delicious crostini topped with homemade sausage and Italian creamy cheese over focaccia. And the Italian chocolate cake was heavenly. The chef, who is the wife of the winery owner, was so charming and wonderful with our grandchildren who loved every minute of the afternoon. It could not have been a more perfect day. We took many, many photos. Thank you to the owners of Viaggi D’Ambra for arranging this perfect Tuscan cooking experience....and thank you for your expert driving through narrow mountain roads with superb views!

Amazing memories thanks to Azzura and Christian!
Oct 2019 • Couples
My husband and I have now made 2 trips to Italy. We hired Christian and Azzura on both trips and are so happy we did! Their intimate knowledge of Tuscany and their relationship with the local wineries and restaurants made such an incredible difference. Our private tours and all the personal touches they include on every day, left us with memories we will never forget! From exclusive shopping and dining experiences, to arranging transportation for us, Christian and Azzura accommodated our every need.

Our next trip will definitely be booked with them and we cannot wait to see our dear friends one day soon.

Highly recommend this engaging tour
Sep 2019
We spent a wonderful day with Viaggi d'Ambra exploring the incredible wine region located on the outskirts of Florence. The booking was made before we left for our Italian holiday, and Christian and Azzurra ensured this process was easy. Christian picked us up promptly in a very comfortable vehicle from the arranged meeting place in Florence. We conversed well in English and loved travelling through the scenic countryside with our small group of likeminded travellers to the chosen wineries. The wine and food we enjoyed throughout the day were wonderful examples of the produce of this distinct region, and Christian had a broad knowledge that was shared with us along the way. Being able to visit wineries that were a little off the beaten tourist track, to hear the producers sharing their stories and knowledge with us, was also incredible. This wasn't our first trip with Viaggi d'Ambra and we hope it won't be our last. It was one of the most memorable days of our holiday, made perfect through the concerted efforts of Christian and Azzurra to share their in-depth knowledge and love of the amazing Tuscan landscape with others. Many thanks Viaggi d’Ambra!
