I took a half-day tour of the Chianti region, which took us to Monteriggioni Fortress, Castellina and Poggio Amorelli Winery. What a fabulous experience. We travelled in an air-conditioned coach bus. The tour guide spoke English, French and Spanish very well. The owner of the winery was very welcoming. He's been featured in magazines, so it was great to have visited his winery. I read reviews from foreigners who purchased cases of wine and/or olive oil to be shipped abroad. They were apparently overcharged. That's too bad, so I'm glad I didn't do that. I would have been disappointed and left with an ugly taste in my mouth, pun intended. Right now, all I have is very fond memories of that place, so my suggestion is to just buy a bottle (or two) to take with you in your suitcase. Anyway, everything about this tour via My Tour was exceptional. The next time I'm in Italy, I will once again book my excursions through them.
