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. Head to San Gimignano, where you will 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.

As you continue in Monteriggioni, look 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. You will have some free time to explore this beautiful village for yourself.

From Monteriggioni, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, you will arrive at a cozy winery. Relax and taste 3 fantastic wines, along with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and other locally-produced "zero-food-miles" delicacies, followed by a 3-course Chianti style lunch.

Once in Siena, your professional local guide will lead you on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center, starting from the famous Basilica of San Domenico, a jewel of Renaissance art built in the 13th century and dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena, of which preserves a relic. Stroll along the narrow medieval streets of the city, flanked by splendid palaces and historic shops. Pass through Piazza del Campo, dominated by the impressive Palazzo Pubblico. Finally, take in the spectacular 12th century Cathedral, and admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the multi-colored marbles. You will also have some free time to end your perfect day enjoying the unique atmosphere of this amazing city, before returning to Florence in the evening.

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.
