What to expect

Enjoy a perfect mix of art, history, landscapes, food and wine, with the top in terms of comfort, relax and attention that you can get only with a real small group. Depart from Florence, see the highlights of Siena on a guided walking tour, admire the marvelous Tuscan landscape, taste genuine Tuscan food paired with great wines, and finish your day relaxing in the hilltop village of San Gimignano. A full day to experience firsthand some of Tuscany's most breathtaking towns.

Meet your guide in Florence and start to enjoy this small-group tour to experience the real essence of Tuscany and understand why the Tuscan region is so famous all over the world. After approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes drive through the amazing Tuscan countryside, you will reach the heart of Siena. Discover Siena, Tuscany's second most important art city. Your guide will take you on a walk through the town's picturesque narrow streets. See the highlights of Siena, including one of the most beautiful squares of Italy, the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, a brick-paved square where the famous Palio horserace is held and the interior of the magnificent Cathedral (entrance fees included, if option selected). After the guided tour, you'll have some free time to enjoy Siena at your own pace and shop around or have an Italian coffee.

On the way to San Gimignano, admire the unique Tuscan landscape, driving through marvelous postcard views, surrounded by olive trees, vines and old stone buildings.

The next stop is at a family-owned wine estate located in the typical Tuscan landscape and with amazing views of vines and olive trees. Here you will have time to relax and enjoy a proper Tuscan lunch that gives you a taste of country hospitality. The menu includes assorted cold cuts, cured ham, salami, cheeses, bruschetta, pasta or soup, salad, dessert and coffee, accompanied by the winery's own excellent wine, olive oil and vin santo (sweet dessert wine).

After lunch, you will reach San Gimignano, where you will finish your day in complete relax. Famous for its splendid skyline of tall Medieval towers, here you will have free time to explore the main street full of typical shops, have a look at the "Collegiata" (main church), or enjoy a gelato! In the afternoon return back to Florence.
