Use your free time to visit the Cathedral, one of the most fabulous achievements of the 13th-15th centuries. Admire splendid buildings and ancient churches along narrow streets.
Continue along scenic roads, passing the vineyards and olive groves of Chianti. Stop at the 13th century hamlet of Monteriggioni, still surrounded by its original fortifications. Walk within the perimeter of the walls to admire the remaining 11 towers, and experience Tuscany as it looked in the Middle Ages.
Stop for a lunch of typical Chianti produce and wines at a local farm and winery. Next, visit San Gimignano, famous for its preserved medieval streets, and the stately towers which gave it the nickname “Manhattan of the Middle Ages.”
