Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni & Chianti

Tuscany/Florence

Crossing the beautiful Chianti hills we arrive at the Medieval hilltop gem of Monteriggioni with its still intact walls. Here you can drink in the history and relive the atmosphere of olden times. Our day continues to the stately Siena, famous for its splendid examples of Gothic architecture and the Palio horse race.
Follow our guide to the impressive Piazza del Campo where the magnificent Palazzo Pubblico stands with its Torre del Mangia. Visit the precious interiors of the Duomo, one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in Italy. After leaving Siena we drive to San Gimignano, famous for its white wine – the world renowned Vernaccia – and its towers that were declared a World heritage Site by UNESCO! The visit is free for independent sightseeing, strolling around the narrow streets and admiring the relaxing landscape. In one of the most famous and award winning ice cream parlors you can enjoy a taste of a delicious homemade ice cream (available during April – October only) it’s our treat! After, we move into the Chianti area with its picture-postcard landscapes. You have the chance to taste the best Chianti red wine in a rustic wine estate along with home-made snacks, with a tour of the wine cellars and sampling of wines and oil.
