Enjoy this small-group tour which will let you discover the beauties of Siena, San Gimignano and the Chianti countryside. The tour runs in the afternoon to avoid the crowds. Typical dinner in a fascinating location is included.
In the ancient times, there was only one city that competed against Florence for power, wealth and artistic beauties: Siena.
Starting from Florence, you will be taken to Siena by a comfortable air-conditioned minivan by an English speaking driver and tour leader.
Here you will enjoy a guided walking tour of this compact city that will let you discover also Piazza del Campo, the main central square where the famous Palio horse race takes place every year, as well as exploring quieter backstreets and learning everything about the Contrade, the 17 medieval city districts that compete against each other in the Palio.
During the visit in Siena you will also have the opportunity to have a surprise tasting of a typical product.
The journey continues to San Gimignano, famed for its medieval skyscrapers, high walls and narrow streets that typify most peoples image of a Tuscan hill town.
San Gimignano is unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its tower houses, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls, form an unforgettable skyline.
After some free time in San Gimignano, gaze in awe at a marvellous sunset on the Tuscan hills and then enjoy a typical Tuscan dinner in a fascinating location in the Chianti countryside. During your dinner you will also enjoy a wine tasting, pairing different wines with the various courses of your Tuscan meal.
You will then be taken back to Florence in the comfort of the minivan and you will end this beautiful day with a stop at Piazzale Michelangelo belvedere, for a breathtaking view of Florence, admiring all the lights of the city (time permitting).
