Tours / At Machiavelli's Home: Wine & History

"Mangiato che ho, ritorno nell'hosteria: quivi è l'hoste, per l'ordinario, un beccaio, un mugnaio, dua fornaciai. Con questi io m'ingaglioffo per tutto dí giuocando a cricca, a trich-trach, e poi dove nascono mille contese e infiniti dispetti di parole iniuriose; e il più delle volte si combatte un quattrino, e siamo sentiti non di manco gridare da San Casciano."

A journey between knowledge and flavor to discover the wonderful village of Sant'Andrea in Percussina, just outside Florence.

Among those valleys, Niccolò Machiavelli went into exile and between a glass of wine and a game of cards, he found the inspiration to write his masterpiece: "Il Principe".

We will enter the family home where he lived and a guide will give anecdotes about the period that Machiavelli spent there.

After visiting the house we will go to the historic tavern "L'Albergaccio", where the author spent his days with the locals and we will also visit the Machiavelli Winery- heaven for wine lovers, where some excellent wines of the Gallo Nero Consortium are produced. In addition to watching, you will also be able to taste! In fact, some appetizers await you, together with a selection of local meats and cheeses.

Finally, you can enjoy a walk in the village of Sant'Andrea in Percussina, an ancient and charming village facing north on the city of Florence, with a view of the Cathedral and of the hills of Fiesole, and east on the valley of Greve and on Impruneta, with a view up to the Pratomagno.

An experience suitable for detaching from the daily chaos and enjoying the Tuscan countryside- and its delicious products!
