Description - What to expect

Start your Tuscany tour with a hassle-free pick-up from your hotel and a drive with a fully fitted minivan all the way through the hills of Chianti to the famous Italian region to discover Siena and San Gimignano, two Captivating and UNESCO World Heritage sites.

First stop in Siena for a lovely walk around the historic center of the city, through the Piazza del Campo, the public square that's also home to the famous Palio di Siena horse race. Enjoy some free time to independently explore the charming alleyways of the city taking in all of its medieval glory. Use your free time to visit the Siena Cathedral or climb Torre del Mangia for incredible panoramic views over the city!

After a morning of exploration in Siena, stop for a delicious wine tasting and lunch, nothing short of incredible! Indulge in eight different Tuscan wines, salami, fresh cheeses, lasagna with truffles, and a local delicacy - Ribollita, a traditional vegetable soup. Enjoy the flavors of Tuscany!

Then, head to the delightful, hilltop village of San Gimignano. Explore its charming medieval streets and experience its Medieval Skyscrapers, which dominate the town and give it a unique skyline. Plunge yourself into the Middle Ages as you immerse in the atmosphere of this enchanting village, renowned for its production of Vernaccia, a light and fruity white wine.

Independently explore the town’s cobblestone alleyways, artisanal shops, art galleries, and breathtaking views of the Tuscan rolling hills, before beginning the trip back to Rome through the Tuscan countryside
