Tour Details

Explore two Italian villages still rooted in medieval times on this day trip from Florence. Enjoy Siena and San Gimignano's unique cuisine, art, architecture, and museums on this one of a kind journey back in time. Begin your Siena and San Gimignano day trip with a drive through Monteriggioni, looking through the large windows of your coach to admire this picturesque village. This medieval town stands alone in the Tuscan countryside, enclosed by its famous walls, which remain standing to this day.

Tour Siena and San Gimignano to see celebrated ancient sites like Piazza del Campo, where you'll learn about the culture and history of the Tuscan people. In Siena, tour the famous cathedral and admire the architecture that adorns its main square while your knowledgeable guide gives details on Siena's interesting history. The tour continues with a visit to the Museum and Oratory of the Contrada, where we can experience the authentic soul of the town. There will be free time to explore on your own, and stop for lunch at a local restaurant if you are hungry.

As you continue to San Gimignano, notice the curious medieval towers, high walls, frescoes, and very narrow streets that can be explained by the turbulent history of this area. Find out what inspired the families to build their towers and seek defense against enemies as your guide informs you about the Guelph-Ghibelline conflict.

In the evening, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, you will arrive to a small and typical winery. After a short walk in the ancient vineyards, visit the barrique room and taste 4 fantastic wines, along with locally-produced "zero-food-miles" delicacies. Finally, stop in the picturesque village of Greve in Chianti and admire its famous main square flanked by arcades, and browse through the local artisan shops.

Your Siena and San Gimignano tour will introduce you to the natural beauties and complex histories of this beautiful region. Spend a day under the Tuscan sun with the convenience of a professionally guided tour.

Please Note: When the Museum and the Oratory of the Contrada are closed (such as during the famous Palio horse race), the tour will include an interior visit of the Cathedral, or another site of particular historic and cultural interest.
