Visit two of Tuscany?s most characteristic towns, Siena and San Gimignano, on this 8-hour shared group tour departing from Florence.
This full day, shared-group tour allows you to travel through the marvelous Chianti countryside to two of the most fascinating towns of Tuscany, Siena and San Gimignano, before heading up into the hills to admire a beautiful sunset and enjoy a typical Tuscan dinner in a magical location.
Starting from Florence, your first destination is the lovely medieval town of Siena, the only town which competed with Florence in terms of power, wealth and artistic beauty in ancient times. Here, you will take a guided walking tour starting from the beautiful shell-shaped square of Piazza del Campo where the world-famous Palio horse race takes place twice a year. You will also admire the city's quieter backstreets and contrade, the 17 characteristic medieval city districts that compete against each other in the Palio. During the tour, you might be surprised by an unexpected tasting of some typical Tuscan products!
The second stop on your journey is San Gimignano, celebrated worldwide for its impressive and well-preserved medieval towers, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls, form an unforgettable skyline that recreates an incomparable atmosphere.
After some free time in San Gimignano, gaze in awe at a marvellous sunset on the Tuscan hills and then enjoy a typical Tuscan dinner at a boutique winery in the Chianti countryside. During your dinner you will also enjoy a wine tasting, pairing different wines with the various courses of your Tuscan meal.
Visit their ancient cellars learning about wine production. A wonderful and complete experience that leaves you the free morning but lets you discover all the main aspects of the Tuscan countryside, including the gems of Siena and San Gimignano and a boutique winery!
