What you'll do
Panzano in Chianti is the little, tiny village located in the heart of Chianti area - located in the heart of Tuscany - where I live since 1997. This place really saw me growing as a person, not only from a human being point of view, but also from a professional point of view, passing from a state of a High School student to a satisfied and fulfilled tour guide, wich I am today. I strongly believe that this small place played a very important role in order to influence me to undertake this professional road, thanks to its treasures and the beautiful countryside surrounding it. That's why it became logical for me to reach this point and finally present you all my home, Panzano in Chianti, hoping to share this place with as many people as possible. I have no doubts: I consider this tour a really jump into my personal life, and not only just a tour or an experience; it has the private life of myself in it, and this, I am sure, will make the difference. So, please, be welcome in my big, little Chianti-Universe, getting to know the village history, its artistic treasures and having the opportunity to share with me a delicious lunch, coming directly from our food tradition.
Hi everyone! My name is Nicola Bernini and I am a licensed tour guide since 2013. I love my job, I love to be with people and I love to show and present my territory, where I live! I am working with AirBnb as an experience since a couple of years and since the very beginning it has been a great opportunity for me, not only work-wise. Recently I also became a teacher for other future tour guides in Sienna, and that was, and it is still, another fantastic opportunity for me, very important in order to enlarge my personal "cultural baggage" and understand more about my job as tour guide.
Simple but very typical lunch at Dario Cecchini's restaurant. Please let me know in advance if you have any food allergies.
Where you'll be
As a starting place I have chosen the central - easy to reach - square "Gastone Bucciarelli". After an introduction regarding "my" little village, I will accompany you to the old heart of Panzano, to show you the old houses, the church with its artistic treasures and the medieval castle. At the end of the tour we will have a small, tasty lunch all together (on me), at my uncle's restaurant, Dario Cecchini, star of season 6 of 'Chef's table'!!!

Panzano is about 30 km far away from Florence, but it's worthy to come, believe me. If you don't have a car, there is a service of busses called SITA, connecting Florence with Panzano and back.
