Full description
Discover the best of the Chianti Hills on this all-encompassing day trip. Departing from Florence, head to your first stop of the day, the medieval town of San Gimignano. Enjoy some free time to explore this fascinating town with its many towers which give the town its nickname of "Medieval Manhattan". Stroll through the local shops and buildings before heading to Monteriggioni, where you can have a glass of wine while admiring panoramic views of the surrounding area. 

Next, head to a traditional winery hidden in the hills where you can relax and enjoy a typical local lunch and sample 3 local wines as well as many other typical products such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cantuccini and vinsanto. (Lunch is optional and depends on option selected when booking).

After lunch, continue towards the beautiful Siena, famous for its splendid examples of Gothic architecture and for the Palio, the horse race that takes place in the suggestive Piazza del Campo. Enjoy a guided tour through Piazza del Campo, the Palazzo Pubblico, the various ‘Contrade’ (districts) and the spectacular cathedral, at the end of the visit there will be free time to take a walk or have a coffee with a piece of Panforte (typical sweet Sienese). You may also choose to take a guided tour of the Siena Cathedral and the Piccolomini Library.
