Enjoy the charming history and culture of Tuscany's most spellbinding sights. This 12-hour tour covers Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa, with a delectable lunch and wine tasting between visits to landmarks such as the Piazza del Campo and the Leaning Tower.
What to Expect
Head to Siena on a journey through quaint Chianti vineyards, arriving just as the townspeople begin to rise.
The guided walking tour begins with a jaunt along Siena's narrow medieval streets, passing such curios as the world's oldest bank, the Piazza del Campo – home of the famous 600-year-old Palio horse-race, and continuing with a visit to the town's spectacular Cathedral before taking a short break.
A fleeting drive ends at a family-run wine farm nestled in the Tuscan countryside. Enjoy a traditional regional lunch of delicious home-made produce fresh from the farm, including fresh pasta, cured meats, crisp salad leaves, and rich cheeses served with local wines including Vernaccia, Chianti, and Vin Santo.
Once that feast has been given time to digest, depart for San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site famous for its medieval town-planning that's made its name as "The Manhattan of the Middle Ages."
Stroll along cobbled stone streets and small market squares, then embark on a trip through the enchanting countryside, spying hilltop hamlets and rustic churches on the way to Pisa. The tour's ultimate stop takes in the Field of Miracles; an opulent green tract dominated by the area's dazzling white buildings, including the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
