Overview:

Enjoy an unforgettable day in Tuscany! Visit the charming medieval towns of Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni and discover the beauty of the Chianti countryside landscape. This tour features delicious local wines.

Description:

Visit three medieval towns and the Chianti area in one day on this tour.

First, you will cross the beautiful Chianti hills as you ride south from Florence in an air-conditioned GT Coach. You will arrive at San Gimignano, a medieval town declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. San Gimignano is famous for its white wine, the world-renowned Vernaccia, and its skyscrapers! Take time to wind your way through the narrow streets and admire the landscape.

Your tour will make its second stop in Siena. Here you will find the Piazza del Campo, famous for the Palio Horse Race and for its splendid examples of Gothic civic architecture. You can also visit the magnificent Palazzo Pubblico with its Torre del Mangia.

Continuing south, the tour will make a stop in Monteriggioni, where the medieval city walls remain intact. The main piazza, the Piazza Roma, is the perfect place to savor the history of the town and relive the atmosphere of olden times - while enjoying a well-earned ice-cream!

Finally, the tour heads to the Chianti area, where you will enjoy postcard-perfect landscapes. Conclude your day at a famous wine estate where you can taste fine Chianti red wine along with homemade snacks.

  • Rating: 5 “The best combonation and value for money you can get in Florence”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Zurich, Switzerland on July 23rd, 2014 The tour was simply amazing, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the Tuscany area in less than 10 hrs with a knowledgeable guide (Anna) and a wonderful wine tasting experience at the end of the tour.
    The only thing was that the tour guide had to translate everything she said into French and Spanish, which was annoying a bit as people who booked the tour should have understood this was an English tour.


  • Rating: 5 “An amazing trip with fantastic scenery”

    Reviewed by Daniel from Solna, Sweden on July 21st, 2014 This was an amazing trip which took us to several little picturesque villages in the Tuscan countryside and ended with a very nice wine-tasting at a Chianti winery. I whole-heartedly recommend this trip !


  • Rating: 3 “Too short to be true”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Singapore, Singapore on May 29th, 2014 Everything in the guide was great except the guide in Siena, which was just an brief walk to stadium, an explanation of what happened there. Then a walk to a cathedral and guide in it and that's all.

  • Rating: 5 “Very nice”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Sucy en Brie, France on July 21st, 2013 Very good organisation with a lovely guide named Serena. She takes care of everybody. We had free time in Monterrigioni and San Gimignano and another local guide for Sienna. The lunch was simple but nice. The wine tasting was very good too. We really spent a lovely day.

  • Rating: 5 “The best guided tour ever!”

    Reviewed by Gerald from San Gwann, Malta on April 16th, 2012 We booked this tour through the internet with some misgivings as all the tours seemed to have 'amazing' and 'fantastic' included in their itinery description. Yet this was truly an amazing tour with our fantastic guide Emmanuela and 'Speedy Gonzalez' Massimiliano. Emi was very knowlegeable about the entire area and was a very nice person to get acquainted with. Massimiliano was also a very pleasant person. The only damper on our day out was the weather because it was raining. This, however, did not succeed to ruin the day for us. Truly, truly a fantastic tour worth every cent! This tour was 11 hours long and very intense. We flew to Bologna and took a train to Florence on Friday purposely to take this tour on Saturday 14th. April because then on Sunday we took the train back to Bologna and flew back home. So, our main purpose for travelling was to take this tour and we were not disappointed!


  • Rating: 5 “Sehr schöner Toskana-Rundschlag, kompetent u. symphatisch geführt!”

    Reviewed by Nadine from Berlin, Germany on August 18th, 2012 Ein im August doch anstrengender, aber wirklich mit schönen Eindrücken vollgepackter Trip, der zu einigen der wohl schönsten Orte der Toskana führt. Allein Siena ist schon ein Traum und jeden Ausflug wert. Freizeit und Programm wechseln sich ausgewogen ab. Einzig der Besuch des Weingutes wird vielleicht ein wenig zu pompös angekündigt - es ist tatsächlich ein sehr kleines und übersichtliches Anwesen, Weinprobe und Imbiss dazu fallen übersichtlich aus (Das mag allerdings auch mit dem günstigen Preis der Tour zusammenhängen). Schön und informativ ist dieser Teil des Tages aber dennoch, und so gibt es im Ergebnis ein dickes Lob!
