Full description
Discover the historic cities of San Gimignano and Siena on this tour that takes off from Florence. Lose yourself in San Gimignano, between high towers and artisan shops, and taste the best gelato in the world. Then, admire the famous Piazza del Campo and cathedral in Siena. The journey begins in San Gimignano, the village built between the hills of Chianti and Val d'Orcia. It is recognizable in the distance for the high towers that dominate the landscape of vineyards, from which the famous wine Vernaccia is produced. The driver will leave you at the door that opens between San Gimignano's thirteenth-century walls so you are able to explore the village on your own. Enter San Gimignano’s lively historic center characterized by narrow streets, picturesque squares, tower houses, palaces, churches, and ancient convents. The village is populated by numerous artisan shops, art galleries, and shops selling typical products including the famous saffron. Stop at a small wine bar and taste a glass of Vernaccia, a fragrant local white wine, or visit the most famous ice cream shop of the village and savor their gelato. Enjoy the freedom to choose how you spend your time here. Less than an hour away, a guided walking tour of Siena awaits. The city, built on three hills, features characteristic streets bordered by ancient palaces. Admire the folkloric multicolored flags, the oldest bank in the world, and Piazza del Campo, the very heart of the city, with its fountain, Fonte Gaia. See the baptistery of the 14th century and the unforgettable Romanesque-Gothic cathedral, one of the most beautiful in Italy.
