HARVEST TOUR - Italy on a Budget tours - Italy #1 tour operator for 18-39's students, backpackers and travellers on a budget. Lots of days tours, short breaks and adventure holidays in the main Italian destinations; Florence, Tuscany, Rome, Venice, Cinque Terre, Amalfi coast and lots more.

HARVEST TOUR

Impress your friends with your newfound knowledge of food and wine combinations while regaling them with stories of your first Tuscan grape harvest!

Join our day trip departing from Florence and spend a day in the stunning Tuscan countryside with its medieval towns and villages. September/October is the harvest time so become part of a tradition while picking the grapes as the Italians do!

You will receive a basket, scissors and instructions from the real farmers how to pick the grapes. You will then enjoy a Tuscan home-style lunch at the local winery overlooking the classic Chianti countryside and pepper your palate with fresh dishes made with local ingredients. At the winery you will also follow the wine and oil olive production process from the expert wine makers and at the end you will taste some of the best Tuscan wines.

Returns back to Florence at 1:30pm
