What You'll Do
  • Take a walking tour of Siena, one of Italy’s most picturesque and well-preserved medieval towns
  • Discover one of Tuscany’s gems: the town of San Gimignano, an UNESCO World Heritage site
  • Indulge in an all-inclusive lunch made from local ingredients at an authentic Tuscan family farm
  • Relax with your designated, expert driver in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle
Overview
If you want to enjoy the best of Tuscany’s culture without the hassle of trying to find your way around its beautiful but often confusing country roads, this day trip from Florence, including Chianti, Siena & San Gimignano, is the perfect trip for you.
What to Expect
Before even leaving Florence you’ll be treated to a local secret, the jaw-dropping view of the city from the Piazzale Michelangelo, from which you can take postcard-perfect shots of the Arno, the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the Bargello and the bell tower of the Badia Fiorentina.

Next you’ll be spirited out of the city and over to Siena, one of the best-preserved examples of medieval Italian architecture in the world. Spared bombing in World War 2, this time capsule of ancient, precarious-looking buildings is home to the Palio, one of the greatest and most dangerous horse races in the world. Your expert tour leader will immerse you in the unique history and culture of Siena as you explore its narrow streets before escorting you to the doors of the breathtaking Siena Cathedral. You don’t have to go in, but it is highly recommended!

Walking the hills of Tuscan towns will make you hungry and thirsty, so the next stop is an authentic Italian family farm where you will have a behind-the-scenes tour of the vineyards, winery, and wine cellars before sitting down for a sumptuous, all-inclusive lunch made from local, seasonal ingredients — and of course, with plenty of Chianti wines.

After indulging your taste buds, you'll stop at San Gimignano, a town of such unique architectural beauty it has been designated an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Shop for Tuscan culinary delicacies in the rustic, winding streets, or learn about the architectural marvels of the famous medieval tower houses that punctuate the city like sentinels of times long past.
