Castelnuovo Berardenga

Castelnuovo Berardenga sits on the southern border of the Chianti, somewhat overshadowed by Siena. For better or worse, its fortunes have always been tied to Siena. In 1555 this Sienese stronghold lost its encircling walls when Siena was defeated by the Florentine-led Medici Grand Duchy. Today, Castelnuovo is special for its peaceful atmosphere and sense of an authentic Tuscan style of living. The low-key charms include a couple of minor churches and a clocktower, remodelled from the original fortifications. Admire Vicolo dell'Arco, with its steep stone staircase and decorative arch. Such charms won’t detain you for long but it’s a soothing spot for contemplating the slow pace of life outside bigger Tuscan towns. In fact, Castelnuovo is a designated Città Slow for this reason. Beyond this former stronghold are a cluster of minor villas and wine estates. Essentially, treat Castelnuovo as a stepping stone to Siena and the southern Chianti.

Chianina Breed Tour in Valdichiana Senese

We will take you on a visit to a Chianina farm, where you will closely observe the beauty, the meekness and the grandeur of this magnificent animal with a white mantle. You will discover the history of the Chianina breed and its deep connection with this territory. Resistant, strong, tame, these beautiful animals have been the engine of agriculture in the Valdichiana before the arrival of agricultural machinery. Today their meat is considered one of the best in the world; the famous Florentine T-bone steak, for example, comes from the Chianina calves. After visiting the farm, you will taste the PGI Chianina meat in different versions, such as tartare, roastbeef, and carpaccio.

Florence and Pisa Shore Excursions from Livorno

The tour starts from the port where your cruise ship arrives. A quick ride to Pisa and just behind the ancient city walls we will have the chance to see the leaning tower so famous worldwide, but remember: other buildings are in the Miracle square such as the Baptistery, the Duomo and the Camposanto.
From Pisa we drive for 75 min to Florence, and the first stop (or last stop, depending on the time and traffic) will be at Piazzale Michelangelo: there the beauty and the grandeur of the Duomo, Giotto's Belltower, Santa Croce Church, the political palace named Palazzo della Signoria will be displayed to your eyes. In town I will be your tour guide and together we will visit the Accademy museum with skip the line tickets, where the Statue of David and others called the "Prisoners" by Michelangelo are housed, and then the rest of the city. After free time for lunch or gelato or shopping, we meet to go to drive back to your cruise ship.
