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: 4 “Best way to see tuscany in one day”

    Reviewed by Jaimie from Walnut Creek, United States on September 14th, 2014 While my husband and I were staying in florence we wanted to see some of the Tuscan hillside towns and do a wine tasting. We did not want to rent a car and we're tight on time so we decided to do a day tour to get the most bang for our buck! We meet at the train station and loaded onto a big tour bus that took us to san gimmigano, chianti for a lunch/wine tasting, siena, and a quick stop a a castle on the way back. It was a long day but worth being able to see so much in a short amount of time. It was also nice to be able to enjoy the country side instead of trying to drive and navigate. We usually are not huge fans of large tours and tour buses, but this tour gave you so much 'free' time you almost felt as if you were on your own most the time.


  • Rating: 5 “Nice trip and nice tour guide”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from HONG KONG, Hong Kong on September 11th, 2014 The explanation from the tour guide is nice. And the lunch is more than my expectation! (salad, pasta, wine tasting) The guide in Siena is wonderful.. We know much more about this old city while the guide leading us to walk around. Recommend this tour in Florence.


  • Rating: 5 “Most enjoyable tour in many years”

    Reviewed by Walter from Navan, Ireland on August 30th, 2014 Overall guide was excellent-the guide taking over at Sienna did not have the same translation capability but overall this was a tour not to be missed


  • Rating: 4 “amazing trip”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Moscow, Russia on August 22nd, 2014 Very good


  • Rating: 5 “A very pleasont day”

    Reviewed by Maxim from Québec, Canada on August 17th, 2014 We had a wonderfull experience during that tour. San Gimignano is really a medieval village stuck in time and Siena is also a must-see. The castle visit at the end is the cherry on top of that tour. We had a very nice guide (Julia) and a professional bus driver that made us feel safe. Only little complain is about the lunch, which is okay, but not great and the wine tasting (during lunch) where we we felt pressured a little bit to buy their pretty expensive wine.
