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.

    Reviewed by Donna – Bentleigh East, Australia on May 23, 2015 Great coach driver - Roberto and Brando the tour leader was knowledgable, humorous and very personable. Highly recommend.


  • Rating: 4 “very well organized and right on time”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer on May 21, 2015 Great tour to take as it might be difficult to see everything by yourself. Wine tasting was a lot of fun! San Gimignano is worth a visit though not many people go


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent service”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – Brooklyn, United States on May 18, 2015 The tour was very informative and well organized.


  • Rating: 4 “Well organized trip, we enjoyed a lot”

    Reviewed by umesh – Mumbai, India on May 16, 2015 We had booked this one day trip to San Gimignano, Siena, Chianti Full-Day Tour with Lunch, the tour was well coordinated one, our requests for hotel pick-up and vegetarian food were honoured. The schedule of the trip permitted us with ample leisure time to see the places well. We also enjoyed the wine tasting session with the funny english of the host/manager of the winery. We wish the lunch could have been better or have been organized at some Restaurants instead of the winery itself, but it might have left us with lesser time for sightseeing. We will recommend this trip to others.


  • Rating: 3 “A good place to visit, unfortunate with Local Tour Guideon that day”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – Bangkok, Thailand on May 12, 2015 Service from local tour guide who was with us on the bus was a bad experience and ruin the day in some moment.
