Discover the beauty of Tuscany and visit its medieval villages on a guided excursion from Florence. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of San Gimignano, tour historic Pisa and Siena, and enjoy a lunch of traditional Tuscan dishes with wine.
What to Expect
Join this full-day (12-hour) and spend a magical day discovering the highlights of Tuscany, made even more delightful by a traditional Tuscan lunch with fine local wine.
The excursion begins with a visit to Pisa and its stunning Piazza dei Miracoli, where you’ll see the Baptistery, the Cathedral and, of course, the famous Leaning Tower.
Stop for lunch at a wine bar or restaurant, and enjoy a tasting of renowned local wines. After lunch, the tour continues with a visit to San Gimignano, the splendid medieval town listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Then you’ll continue along the scenic roads of the Chianti region to historic Siena, the city of the Palio horse race.
A local expert guide will take you on a guided tour of Siena, pointing out important monuments, palazzos, and piazzas. Visit Piazza del Campo (where the Palio di Siena horse race is held), and Piazza del Duomo with its Cathedral.
After some free time in Siena, you’ll head back to Florence in your comfortable air-conditioned minivan.
