Along the way that will lead us to Siena, we will stop at San Gimignano, a small and world famous walled town located on a hilltop, which remained intact through the centuries, renowned for its tall towers,
wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art: here we will be led until the heart of the historical center, where to have free time at disposal for its fascinating discovery.
Upon arrival in Siena, after free time for lunch (not included), we meet the local guide, who takes us on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center, starting from its most beautiful square, Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) is the focal point and a pleasant walk through the Museum and Oratory of a Palio’s Contrada (*) (exclusive opening), where we can experience the atmosphere of the authentic and most intimate soul of the town. The “Contrade” (districts into which the city is divided) are the real core of local social life, where inhabitants of each district compete with each other, as they devote themselves to the preparation of the famous Palio horse-race. The Museum of a ”Contrada”, as well as its Oratory, is therefore the heart of the district. It is an intimate and secret place containing historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art, which are normally not disclosed to the public. We proceed then to the spectacular Cathedral of the 12 th century, of which we can admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles.
In the afternoon, we will stop at the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni, an amazing small medieval village enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing to this day, free time for inside visit. Then crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, we will arrive to a cozy Winery, where taste four fantastic wines and sampling balsamic vinegar and “zero food miles” products , to end this memorable experience in the heart of Tuscany with delicious Tuscan flavors.

Please note that the order of the visits may change.

(*) When the Museum and the Oratory of the Contrada are not accessible, will be replaced with another site of particular historic and cultural interest

Escorted tour
Jenny Bloom, 01/2020
The best way to visit Tuscany if you don't have a car but at the same time you want to visit the places in total freedom. The bus was comfortable and the Tour Leader very helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our free time in San Gimignano, Siena and Monterigioni. The lunch was good.
Very pleasant Day
Jessica Drew, 01/2020
The day was extremely nice despite some rainy weather. Our tour guide on the bus was very informative and helpful throughout the day. We did not do the guided tour in Siena, but had a wonderful time exploring both Siena, and San Gimignano, on our own. The bus was extremely comfortable. The lunch was very good and the wines we tasted delicious. Overall a very nice day, and the price was extremely reasonable for everything that we were given.
Tuscany at our pace

We chose the tour without local guide, which is exactly what we wanted. Even though my fees are not included for guidance and stuff, the tour leader still gave us the clear directions and suggestions of the destinations. The tour departed on time and be back in Firenze city on time too. Definitely recommend to people who have limit time of visiting Tuscany!
Perfect independent tour
Helena Black, 11/2019
We had a great day out visiting San Gimignano and Siena. The guide on the bus was friendly and helpful and gave interesting commentary on the coach. This is a good tours for those who like to wander about independently. But we also enjoyed the lunch and the wine tasting, included in the tour.
Tour recomendado!

Nos gusta visitar nuevos lugares sin prisa, y este tour es perfecto para esto! Tuvimos todo el tiempo necesario para visitar las ciudades y hasta descansar un poco. El bus es grande y el guía nos dio unos consejos muy útiles en el trayecto.
Lo que estabamos buscando
Lorena Calvillo, 07/2019
Exactamente lo que estábamos buscando. El día era magnífico, con mucho sol y un poquito de viento así que podíamos pasear sin quemarnos. La guía en el autobús muy amable, nos dio un montón de informaciones en Español (con una pronuncia perfecta!). Tuvimos tiempo libre en todas las ciudades, que nos permitió pasear por la calles sin prisa. La degustación en la bodega muy bien organizada y los vinos riquísimos! Recomendamos!
