Full description

Embark on a scenic tour from Florencia to the charming Tuscan towns of San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, and Siena. Stroll around the historic villages and enjoy a delicious Chianti Hills wine and balsamic vinegar tasting. Upgrade your experience with tickets to Siena Cathedral.

Your memorable journey starts with the charming San Gimignano, world-famous walled town located on a hilltop, which remained intact through the centuries, renowned for its tall towers, wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art: here the tour leader will lead you to the historical center, where you will have around 2 hours of free time for a fascinating discovery. A short distance from San Gimignano you will visit the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni (*), a wonderful small medieval village enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing until now: free time for inside visit. From Monteriggioni, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, a short ride will take you to a cozy Winery, where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic world of Chianti with its wine and typical products: tasting of three fine wines and balsamic vinegar followed by a Chianti style lunch: 3 course with “zero food miles” products which ends with "cantucci e vin santo". Later on, getting to Siena, you will meet your professional local guide who will lead you on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center, starting from the famous Basilica of San Domenico, a jewel of Renaissance art built in the 13th century and dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena, of which preserves a relic. Then strolling along the narrow medieval streets of the city, flanked by splendid palaces and historic shops, passing through Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) is the focal point, you will get to the spectacular Cathedral of the 12th century (inside visit if option selected), of which you can admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles. You will also have some free time to end your perfect day enjoying the unique atmosphere of this wonderful city, before the return to Florence in the evening.  Please note that the order of the visits may change (*) From November to March, the itinerary does not include the stop at Monteriggioni and the return to Florence is approx 30 minutes earlier

The visit to the cities is excellent, and it became even more pleasant with the team that attended us (guide Vera and driver Rodolfo). The visit to Vinicola was very brief, and left something to be desired. Lunch starter was good but the main course and especially dessert left a lot to be desired. In general, what is really worth it is to know the cities.

Meeting point is easy to locate using the link to google map sent by GYG. Tour guide Cecilia is very friendly and coach driver Leonardo is very professional. Lunch was ok. Local guide at Siena is very informative. But it’s a pity we didn’t get to take photo at any vineyard. Do opt for entrance to the cathedral if you are joining this tour.

It was a very entertaining day, in which we went through 4 different places. Lunch was something different and entertaining, in which we were able to taste delicious wines from the area. The guide was very kind and explained and taught us about what we were seeing. I recommend it to get an idea of some towns and cities in Tuscany
