As you leave, sample the delightful gourmet olive oil and appreciate the flavor that their hard work and devotion creates. Upon your return to Florence, hop back on your e-bike and make your way to a charming boutique winery. There, you will get to sip on exquisite Tuscan wines and indulge in a delicious meal. Take some time to unwind before continuing your journey. Just before you depart, make sure to reflect on your previous experience with olive oil, as it is sure to have left an impression on you.
