Depart for Siena, driving through the lovely Chianti vineyards, getting there while the town is still immersed in early morning drowsiness; the perfect time of day to wander around the pedestrian-friendly heart of this beautiful hilltop town, drenched in history. Upon arrival in Siena our local guide will take you on a guided walking tour along the small medieval streets and squares, passing the oldest bank in the world, and the Piazza del Campo - site of the famous 600-year-old Palio horse-race, to the spectacular Cathedral. During your free time, stroll through Siena at your own pace.

A short journey then takes us to a family run wine-farm in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. Here we shall have a delicious, traditional Tuscan lunch served with typical wines from our region. After lunch, departure for San Gimignano, Unesco world heritage, famous for the still intact mediaeval town planning. It is often nicknamed the “Manhattan of the Middle Ages” because its famous tall, narrow towers create a skyline that looks a bit like a modern city.  Here you have free time to explore the town centre, the charming craftsmen’s shops along the cobbled stone streets and small squares.

From San Gimignano, we drive past hilltop hamlets, or little churches, scattered over some of the most beautiful and enchanting countryside. We finally wind down the hillsides towards the coast, to Pisa, our last destination for the day. Getting off the coach, we reach the Field of Miracles, a green grass field dominated by the dazzling white buildings of the Cathedral or Duomo, the Tower and the Baptistery - exquisite examples of Pisan Romanesque architecture: the Leaning Tower is almost 56 meters tall (about 183 ft). It leans at about 4 degrees, making it one of the most famous and iconic buildings in the world. You are in one of the most renowned places in the world: revel in it, take creative photographs or wander off down the local streets.

Amazing tour
Stephen Cooper, 02/2020
"Just one word: amazing! We are not used to book these types of tour but this time we had just 2 days to spend in Florence and Tuscany and we wanted to visit the most famous sights, we had no car and it is not possible to reach all the wonderful places in Tuscany by train. So we decided to try a shared tour by bus and I couldn't have asked for any more from this experience! The tour guides were very nice and helpful, lunch was very good and we also tasted some Chianti wines. The places you visit speak for themeselves. Thank you guys, thank yu Caf Tours!"
A must tour

This is a must tour if you want to see and learn about the Tuscany region. Our tour guide, was very patient, pleasant, efficient, and highly knowledgeable about the history of the area. She spoke perfect English as well. The bus ride was picturesque. The cathedral in Siena is amazing, San Gimignano had the best chocolates and of course the Leaning Tower in Pisa. I highly recommend the tour.
Just go on it!

All three sites were awesome making this a great day trip! The lunch near San Gimignano was wonderful and walking the narrow streets of San Gimignano was so much fun. Seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa was so surreal to me. Seeing it in pictures and then seeing it in person....unbelievable!! I cannot say enough good things about this day trip....just go on it!!
Beautiful day in Tuscany

I have spent a whole day exploring the beautiful Tuscany. Our first stop was Siena. It is a beautiful town with an amazing and fascinating duo-mo what worth a visit to check it from the inside also. After our lunch, we went to explore San Gimignano. I can not recommend enough this place and its charming streets. There is a really nice view point where you can see 360 degree of the area and its beautiful landscape. We headed to Pisa, that was our last stop. Wonder around the leaning tower. The whole day would't be perfect without our tour guide who was very knowledgeable, kind and funny. I cannot remember his name only the last name "Fusilli" :) Can't forget that. I really enjoyed myself, overall it was a really pleasant trip with very nice atmosphere and scenery.
Tuscany!

Our tour guide was very helpful when we needed to get a taxi to our hotel. She had a lot of interesting facts and we had a lovely day out in siena san gimignano and pisa. One thing maybe to be able to go on the leaning tower of pisa.
A very good day!

Our tour guide was so helpful and very informative. We had a different guide at Siena to take us through the church. She was able to entartain all of us with her knowledge and her passion for art and the city of Siena. A good balance of time with the guide and free time. The lunch was light but delicious and the wine was good. The host of the wine tasting was great. A very good day!
