We were a group of 5 that took a bus from Florence, and then started the walk up towards Castello di Verrazzano. Reviews said it would take about 30 minutes, (likely would have taken about 45), however about 10 minutes in we flagged down the shuttle (which apparently we could have called from the bottom) and they drove us the rest of the way-which was great as we were running late. The grounds are gorgeous, and we did a wine tour and tasting. We were the only group there at the time, so it was a private tour for 5 was awesome. Simon, our guide, was amazing, knowledgeable, friendly, and with a great sense of humor. We sampled wine, as well as the balsamic vinegar that is aged 12 years. We didn't have the time or option to do the food tour given our schedule, but based on the cheese and balsamic, I would imagine it is delicious. Highly recommend for a taste of Chianti.
