During your time in Siena you’ll also enjoy a surprise tasting of a typical local product.
The tour continues on to San Gimignano, famed for it's medieval skyscrapers, high walls, and narrow streets that are characteristic of a typical Tuscan hill town. You’ll see a number of well-preserved tower houses and other centuries-old monuments.
