Day trip to Siena San Gimignano Chianti

Day trip to Siena, San Gimignano and the fascinating hills of Chianti!

Tour Code: E1

A lovely, romantic day trip from Florence to Siena, get the most of Tuscany and visit San Gimignano, live and unforgettable experience in the Chianti region! The area of Siena and San Gimignano, as the entire Chianti territory, has maintained an ancestral atmosphere that calls to mind the splendors of the past. Nowadays these cities are must-see locations for the discerning visitor who wishes to discover their unspoilt beauty.

The day trip will start with Monteriggioni, a perfect preserved medieval castle, also worldwide known for its countryside of unrivalled charm, where woods alternate with vineyards and olive groves, in a landscape dotted with churches, farmhouses and villas. Next on our itinerary is Siena and its attractions. You will be enchanted by the splendid Cathedral built in a Romanesque/Gothic style (admission included) and by the Palazzo Comunale (town hall).

This palace is situated in the picturesque Piazza del Campo, in which the famous Palio takes place every year. Free time for lunch, enjoy the local cuisine (and try the truffles)! We will then reach San Gimignano. Declared by UNESCO to be a world heritage site, is also called the “city of the beautiful towers” (or “Manhattan of the past”): here you can still admire 14 towers, a symbol of the power and wealth of its inhabitants during the Middle Ages.

Before departing you will taste the best ice cream ever, which has won the last two editions of the World Championship. Our tour of the Chianti Classico “terroir” will give you the opportunity to enjoy beautiful landscapes from knolls, streets and piazzas which have remained virtually the same over the centuries.

This full day trip will end with a stop in a renowned vineyard, reviewed in the most important wine journals, with a snack consisting of salami, cheese, and different kinds of bruschetta as well as a selection of fine wines.
