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: 4 “It was a very nice tour.”

    Reviewed by Maria – Irving, United States on March 15, 2015 We enjoyed the tour. We got to see a little bit of the different parts of Tuscany. We had ample time in each town to take photos and shop a little. The guide was very good in explaining the history of each town which made it more interesting. And the wine tasting was a very nice way to end the tour. The only negative that I can say is that we were expecting some cold meat and cheese served during the wine tasting as described in the wine tasting activity but there was only bread.


  • Rating: 4 “Quick overview of Tuscany”

    Reviewed by Etienne – Montreal, Canada on October 20, 2014 We liked the activities, good value for the money. The only things to mention is that the guided tour of Siena was mainly a guided tour of the cathedral, not enough guided tour of the city (which we were left with only half a hour of free time...)


  • Rating: 5 “Will do it again!”

    Reviewed by Abdessamad – Toronto, Canada on October 4, 2014 The tour was amazing, I would recommend it to anyone and I will do it again and again.
    Thanks also to stephano, our guide.


  • Rating: 5 “Fantastic value”

    Reviewed by Michael – London, United Kingdom on August 27, 2014 Lovely guide. Irene!!


  • Rating: 3 “Decent but a bit rushed”

    Reviewed by Nadine – Edgware, United Kingdom on August 14, 2014 This is an ambitious trip and is good if like me you only have one day and want to visit all these places. However, I do think that the timing could have been managed a bit better. In particular, I think too little time was given to Monteriggioni - just 20 minutes! Granted, it is a tiny place, but there are a quite a few interesting shops and a museum to see; even 15 minutes longer would have sufficed. The situation was similar in San Gimignano. On the other hand, a lot of time was spent in Siena. Aside from the timing issues, it was a nice trip with knowledgeable and multilingual guides that were very helpful, and efficient transportation (although it did get a bit hot on the bus). The group was rather large but this wasn't much of a problem as we were given a lot of free time to walk around independently. The group did mainly consist of families and couples, so as a lone 20 year old I did feel a bit out of place. The wine tasting was a nice experience, but not amazing.
