Overview:

Enjoy a full-day tour of Tuscany’s villages and wine regions from Florence and travel into the heart of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Visit the town of San Gimignano, the wine territory of Chianti, and the medieval town of Siena.

Description:

Explore the heart of beautiful Tuscany on a full-day tour of the towns of San Gimignano and Siena, then discover the bucolic wine region of Chianti. Departing from Florence by luxury air-conditioned bus, your first stop will be the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Gimignano, one of the most splendid examples of an Italian medieval town.

Distinguished by its famous towered skyline, San Gimignano stands along the Via Francigena on the hills of the Upper Val D’Elsa. Also famous for its Vernaccia di San Gimignano wine, saffron, and precious Santa Fina pottery, it is an excellent place to get acquainted with the Tuscan environment. You will enjoy some free time to stroll through the town on your own and explore its beautiful squares, architecture, churches, and side streets.

In the afternoon you will tour the Chianti Classico area, taking in charming scenic views. Here you will have the pleasure of touring a famous wine estate where Chianti Classico, oil, balsamic vinegar, and aromatic herbs are all produced. Enjoy a delicious lunch of sliced cold meats, bruschetta, salami, pasta, and cheeses.

Continue to Siena for a guided tour of its enchanting architectural styles, including the Cathedral and Palazzo Comunale (Municipal Building) in Piazza del Campo. The famous shell-shaped square provides the stage for the thrilling Palio horse race, run twice every summer.

  • Rating: 5 “A real tuscan experience!”

    Reviewed by Roberta – rio de janeiro, Brazil on February 16, 2015 Everything was more than I ever expected. The guide, Sara, was so helpful and joyous, as was the guide Bia in Siena and the wine tasting expert. It was an amazing day and I recommend the tour 200%! =D


  • Rating: 4 “You can find more cheap price in "my tour" website”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – Taichung City, Taiwan on February 12, 2015 The tour was good, but I found we got more expensive price than others(10-15 euros). If you are looking for some tours, I suggest you can book it in Florence, there are so many different kind of tours here, and you can get a cheaper price here!


  • Rating: 4 “Nice trip”

    Reviewed by Joergen – Stavanger, Norway on January 29, 2015 I nearly missed the trip in the morning as I was waiting under the big clock. I couldn't find the "Get your Guide" person who should pick me up, but I asked a young girl showing a "My trip" sign, and she immediately took me inside the station hall to a counter were other people were waiting. The rest of the day went fine, the guide was informative and told us about the towns and places we were going to see. The lunch we were served was ok, but it was not a complete meal. The wine tasting was interesting, and we tried four different wines, all of them excellent. In Siena there were two guides to take us around, one in English language and one in French. Everything was very instructive. After all a successful and full-day excursion in Toscana.


  • Rating: 5 “Great family day trip”

    Reviewed by Beth – Nashville, United States on January 16, 2015 This was an easy way to see a lot in a day! We were able to relax a little on the bus drive (and not have to worry about a car, directions, where to go, park) and hop off the bus to see a variety of places. Having a tour guide for a little bit in Sienna was wonderful and then having time to walk around on our own with our family was great too. It was nice having all of this set up for us and the day was really worth it!
