Overview

Visit the charming San Gimignano, the famous walled town located on a hilltop, renowned for its tall towers, wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art. Explore the historical center with the tour leader, where you will have around 2 hours of free time for a fascinating discovery.

Next, we go to San Gimignano, the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni, an amazing small medieval village which remained standing to this day.

From Monteriggioni, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, visit a cozy Winery, where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic world of Chianti with its wine and typical products: tasting of three fine wines and balsamic vinegar followed by a Chianti style lunch: 3 course with “zero food miles” products which ends with "cantucci e vin santo".

Once in Siena, your guide will lead you on a guided tour of the historic center, starting from the famous Basilica of San Domenico, a jewel of Renaissance art built in the 13th century. Explore the narrow medieval streets of the city, flanked by splendid palaces and historic shops, passing through Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) is the focal point. See the spectacular Cathedral of the 12th century (inside visit if option selected), take in the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles.

Spend time exploring on your own before the return to Florence in the evening.

Please note that the order of the visits may change.

The city is surrounded by walls, and is famous for its medieval architecture and tall buildings. Some of the city's most beautiful works are its churches, especially the Collegiate Church and the Church of Saint Augustine, which hold works by Renaissance artists.
