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.

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.

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 before your return journey to Florence.

  • Rating: 5 “Excellent Day Trip”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Kings Langley, United Kingdom on October 22nd, 2014 Excellent trip, very informative and very good value for money. Our guide Viola Mastragostino was very helpful, cheerful and knowlegeable about the area we were visiting. The entertainment value of the wine tasting part of the trip alone made it worth it. It was also very informative and interesting and the lunch was better and more than I was expecting. Well done to everyone one involved in making it a very enjoyable day.


  • Rating: 4 “Sites were very interesting”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Deerfield Beach, United States on October 20th, 2014 The sites were well chosen and the guides knowledgeable. The lunch and wine tasting was disappointing in quality.


  • Rating: 3 “Average”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Coquitlam, Canada on October 12th, 2014 The day itself was fantastic, however, I was unimpressed with the guide.
    It was nice to have travel arranged for the day and the highlight was the wine tasting but if you are looking for a guided tour, this is not it.
    Once off the bus, at all three stops, we were left on our own. No direction, no engaging conversation no walking tour. Our guide seemed more interested in cigarettes than the tour group.


  • Rating: 5 “Nice service”

    Reviewed by Chih-Jung from Taiwan, Taiwan on October 3rd, 2014 Nice tour guide. Good travel plan. I'm happy to have a wonderful day.


  • Rating: 5 “Unexpectable journey”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bangkok, Thailand on October 1st, 2014 We planned to go to San Gimignano from Florence for our Italy trip. First we try to go on our own by train and bus. But when we saw the program tour from Getyourguide. We think let give it a shot but it becomes a great experience for us. Our English guide is perfectly great and also the local guide in Siena. The free time in each town is perfect that can give us to look around the whole town. The recommendation of gelato from our guide in San Gimignano is awesome. It's our best Gelato in Italy so far. This is one of experience that you should get!!!
