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 It is an intimate and secret place containing historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art, which are normally not disclosed to the public.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

San Gimignano and Siena: our dream!
Julie Evans, 01/2020
It was our dream for a long time to visit these enchanting places in the heart of Tuscany and finally we made it! San Gimignano is a wonderful little village called the Manhattan of Middle Ages, because of its medieval Towers. In Siena we really liked the guided tour and the amazing Cathedral: if you go there, you must visit it inside! The lunch was very good and the wines were excellent. We had to buy some :)

Très belle excursion en Toscanne. La guide qui nous a accompagné durant la visite de Sienne était extraordinaire. Nous avons eu assez de temps pour visiter les villes.
Bella giornata

Siamo venuti in Toscana dalla Sicilia per fare visita a nostra figlia che studia a Firenze. Proprio lei ci ha consigliato di fare questo tour per vedere i posti più belli senza dover noleggiare un'auto. Siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti. Organizzato molto bene, la guida a Siena era molto preparata e la Cattedrale merita una visita! La parte che ci è piaciuta di più è stato il pranzo con degustazione. Tutto squisito!
Wunderbar!

Wir haben die Tour im Sommer gemacht, und das Erlebnis war toll! Das Essen war schmackhaft und der wine außergewöhnlich!
Una giornata speciale

Una giornata davvero speciale. Siamo venuti in a Firenze dalla Basilicata per fare visita a nostro figlio che studia medicina qua. Ci ha consigliato di fare questo tour per scoprire alcuni dei posti più belli della Toscana e visto che eravamo pure senza mezzi ne abbiamo approfittato. Siamo stati benissimo, l'accompagnatrice Sarah era davvero gentile ed è riuscita ad intrattenere tutti quanti parlando in più lingue. Siamo rimasti incantati da San Gimignano, un paesino davvero magico. Il pranzo ci è piaciuto molto e abbiamo avuto modo anche di comprare qualche bottiglia di Chianti.
