Full description

Discover Tuscany on a guided day tour from Florence to the medieval cities of Siena, San Gimignano, and Monteriggioni. Enjoy views of rolling hills and vineyards, with a stop at a Chianti winery for a traditional Tuscan lunch and wine tasting.

First arrive in San Gimignano, a tiny medieval town that has remained intact through the centuries. Sitting upon a hilltop, it is famous for its numerous towers, frescoes, and other art treasures. Enjoy more free time to discover this fascinating city on your own. Next, visit the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni, a medieval village enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing to this day. Afterward, you will cross the Chianti rolling hills and then arrive at a small and typical winery. There, taste 4 wines, and sample balsamic vinegar and other locally produced products. Your final stop is in Siena, where you will have free time to walk along the narrow medieval streets, admiring the splendid palaces, the Cathedral, Libreria Piccolomini, and the famous shell-shaped Piazza del Campo.

Bus driver and guide in the bus were very kind and informative. The lunch was unexpectedly large. 3 course meal with typical plate of cheese, salami, ham, olive oil and salad. This was the highlight. Main course was macaroni Bolognese and a small piece of cake as last course. Vegan and vegetarian is also possible. Then we could taste 4 different wines. So lunch was way better than expected. The trip to San Gimignano and Montereggioni were well timed. Enough to see the highlight. Same for Siena. We didn't book any guide in Siena and that was fine as well. I can definatly recommend this journey.

I was on vacation with my daughter, the tour was in English and Spanish, the tour representative took care to make us sit behind the driver and then next to our guide who was the very kind Ivan, who with great care and professionalism translated everything into Italian and always gave us excellent advice about places to visit.
