Full description

If you’re only in Florence for a few days and want to see more of Tuscany, this budget day tour is the perfect option. Your full-day tour departs from Florence and heads to historic Siena, where you’ll be enchanted by the architecture of the Cathedral and the Palazzo Communal in Piazza del Campo, home to the famous Palio horse race held in July and August. Stop in San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most famous walled medieval hill town in Tuscany. You’ll have free time to explore the narrow streets and alleys and check out the local shops that sell Tuscan delicacies. On the way to Siena you’ll also visit Monteriggioni, where you’ll have the opportunity to see where the Hollywood sensation, Gladiator was filmed.

    Insanely beautiful trip - definitely recommendable!

    Our tour guide Veronca was an incredibly warm, funny person who provided us with enough information and always made for a good atmosphere. The small travel group of 6 people creates a very familiar atmosphere - ideal for getting into conversation with everyone. After visiting the towns and villages, the wine and oil tasting was the perfect end to a really successful trip.

    Nice tour

    Nice tour in which we got to see a lot of places.

    Not bad, not terrible. Guides were really nice, but you have the feeling you are always on the run. The wine tasting was a disappointment, both wines and food very average.
