What to expect

Let the art cities of Tuscany seduce you with the lifestyle of their inhabitants, the beauty of their monuments and the centuries of history that exude from every stone.

Enjoy the hilly Tuscan countryside on the way to Siena, the splendid medieval city worldwide renown for its artistic treasures. Visit the place where the famous Palio horse race takes place every year: Piazza del Campo with its Palazzo Comunale flanked by the tall Torre del Mangia. Spend your free time visiting the splendid Cathedral and strolling along the lively narrow streets.

From Siena, take a panoramic road through vineyards and olive groves in the heart of Chianti to the ancient fortified hamlet of Monteriggioni, which was built in the thirteenth century and is still embraced by its intact walls. A short distance away, in a pleasant country estate surrounded by aromatic plants, you will be served a lunch based on typical Chianti products and a guided tasting of fine Chianti and Vernaccia wines, managed with passion and expertise by the friendly owner of the farm.

After lunch, head to San Gimignano, another UNESCO World Heritage Site recognizable by the still intact medieval city structure with numerous towers hence the name "Manhattan of the Middle Ages". Discover true pieces of art such as Piazza della Cisterna, the Dome, Palazzo del Podestà and the Church of Sant' Agostino.

It is finally time to reach Pisa and enjoy the sparkling sight of Piazza dei Miracoli where the peerless masterpieces in marble rise in the green lawn: the unmissable Leaning Tower, the magnificent Baptistery, the stunning Cathedral, and the Monumental Graveyard are the ultimate expression of the Romanesque architecture of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.
