Rome to Florence, vineyard stop?

Good evening, everyone! My boyfriend and I will be traveling via train from Rome to Florence this May. What are possible vineyard stops halfway? I'd love to use this "travel day" to visit the Tuscan wine country. We'll have three days in Florence but they are already booked ... any suggestions you may have for a good stop accessible by train are much appreciated. Thank you!

The fast trains from Rome to Florence do not stop anywhere along the way. The slower trains have some stops but, by their nature, vineyards are out in the country and difficult to reach.

You might try contacting the Florence Tourist Office to see if there is a tour of the Chianti area on the afternoon of your arrival. http://www.firenzeturismo.it/en/

My guess is it would be rare for any tours to depart from Florence in the afternoon. These wine tours often take the whole day so most, if not all of them, depart in the morning. If you want to catch a tour, you should take one of the first trains from Rome to Florence so you can join.

I suggest you a stop in Orvieto, this lovely medieval town is located one hour by train from Rome. Nearby the train station there are a couple of local winery that offer wine tasting. The local white wine of Orvieto is very popular, but also the local red wine are good.

I you want to stop for longer the train station "Orvieto Scalo" is also connected with the historical centre by cable railway. Visit the famous duomo and have a wine tasting in one the local wineries. There are many in the centre.
