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. The aim of this tour is to let the people enter into the Panzano dimension, slowly but surely, getting to know its history, artistic treasures, the beautiful countryside, the people living and working there, without missing the food and the wine: prime elements of the Chianti area, in wich Panzano is. The morning will be dedicated to discover the old part of Panzano, with the church and the castle. At the end of the morning a simple, but tasty and typical lunch will be there for us all. After lunch I will accompany you to visit the beautiful parish church of San Leolino, a real small Museum in the middle of the tuscan countryside, thanks to its artistic masterpieces, and then, before saying 'goodbye', a lovely wine tasting in one winery located right in Panzano in Chianti, will be our farewell.
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. Please let me know in advance if you have any food allergies. Thank you very much!

Where you'll be
As a starting place I have chosen the central - easy to reach - square "Gastone Bucciarelli", locally called "Piazza di Campana". After an introduction regarding "my" little village, I will accompany you to the old heart of Panzano (Panzano Alto). After lunch - in Panzano in Chianti also - we will move to San Leolino parish church, to see its artistic masterpieces. A winery will be waiting for us just before saying goodbye each other.

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.
