Full description
Explore the heart of beautiful Tuscany on a full-day tour of the towns of San Gimignano and Siena, then discover the bucolic wine region of Chianti. Departing from Florence by luxury air-conditioned bus, your first stop will be the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Gimignano, one of the most splendid examples of an Italian medieval town. Distinguished by its famous towered skyline, San Gimignano stands along the Via Francigena on the hills of the Upper Val D’Elsa. Also famous for its Vernaccia di San Gimignano wine, saffron, and precious Santa Fina pottery, it is an excellent place to get acquainted with the Tuscan environment. You will enjoy some free time to stroll through the town on your own and explore its beautiful squares, architecture, churches, and side streets. Afterwards you will head out to a unique location in the Chianti countryside to enjoy a wine tasting. Once you hop off the bus, you will be guided around a splendid winer. Here you will be introduced to the estate's fascinating history and background. Head inside the cellars where you'll learn the secrets of Chianti winemaking together with the local host. Then enjoy a delicious wine tasting of Chianti Classico. Continue to Siena for a guided tour of its enchanting architectural styles, including the Cathedral (exterior only) and Palazzo Comunale (Municipal Building, again exterior only) in Piazza del Campo. The famous shell-shaped square provides the stage for the thrilling Palio horse race, run twice every summer.

    Beautiful tour and great tasting. I recommend this tour to those who have little time and want to see a lot or to those who, like us, wanted to have an idea of what there is to see and do in order to organize a more targeted holiday in the future. We were a group of 2 families with children of 14, 9, 8, 7 years in tow who have withstood the walks in the various stages. The bus was very nice and clean and was especially appreciated by those who usually drive (my husband) and cannot enjoy the view.

    Guide Lucy gives a good explanation about the 3 picturesque towns that are visited. Therefore, the day was certainly a success. The wine tasting is a bit disappointing. A minimum of wine is poured and time is repeatedly indicated while you are eating and wine tasting. The group was nice so we had a good laugh about it.

I did the trip with my 2 years old son and he also enjoyed it and the guide brought a seat for the van and lunch for him as well. Excellent experience!
