What to expect

Your memorable journey starts with the charming San Gimignano, world-famous walled town located on a hilltop, which remained intact through the centuries, renowned for its tall towers, wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art: here the tour leader will lead you to the historical center, where you will have around 2 hours of free time for a fascinating discovery.

A short distance from San Gimignano, you will visit the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni, an amazing small medieval village enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing to this day: free time for an inside visit.

From Monteriggioni, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, a short ride will take you to 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 courses with “zero food miles” products which ends with "cantucci e vin santo".

Later on, getting to Siena, you will meet your professional local guide who will lead you on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center (if selected), starting from the famous Basilica of San Domenico, a jewel of Renaissance art built in the 13th century and dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena, of which preserves a relic. Then strolling along 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, you will get to the spectacular Cathedral of the 12th century (inside visit if selected) and admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles.

Choose the option which includes the inside guided visit to the famous Siena Cathedral, built in the 12th century, together with Libreria Piccolomini, to discover the beauty of its treasures and works of art: the floor (during the opening period), decorated with the art of mosaics to create storytelling masterpieces, St. John the Baptist by Donatello, the rose window by Duccio di Buoninsegna, the marble pulpit by Nicola Pisano, the Library which kept a rich collection of manuscripts.

You will also have some free time to end your perfect day enjoying the unique atmosphere of this amazing city, before the return to Florence in the evening.

You can choose from 3 different options:

  • The San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni and Chianti guided tour San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni, Chianti without Siena Cathedral and Libreria Piccolomini interior visit
  • The San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni and Chianti guided tour San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni, Chianti with Siena Cathedral and Libreria Piccolomini interior visit
  • Or the semi-independent San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni and Chianti tour with lunch (this excursion will take you to the same locations as the tour described above, but does not include a professional local guide and museum entrance fees)
