Description

Quaint towns where time seems to have come to a halt. Mesmerizing piazzas and ancient traditions. Vineyards and rolling hills. A Siena private tour is the very best way to appreciate authentic Tuscany, and discover its heart and soul! All in full comfort, of course, with your dedicated driver and a charismatic guide for your Siena private tour.

Spend a memorable day exploring two small Tuscan gems filled with art and centuries-old historic reminiscences. Meet your private dedicated English-speaking driver and travel to Siena, one of the most enchanting medieval cities in Italy.

Meet your dedicated private guide and set off on a memorable walking visit of the town which yearly hosts the heart-stopping Palio. Siena, founded by the Romans, boasts an exciting history and striking architecture. And the local traditions are fascinating, like the famous Palio di Siena held in the town’s lovely Piazza del Campo. Here twice a year dashing horses compete in a thrilling race, the Palio di Siena, a tradition which dates back to the Middle Ages and still calls to all Sienese! Hear your guide recount fascinating legends as you wander down medieval streets, and visit the magnificent Duomo, Siena’s awe-inspiring Cathedral.

Depart Siena and enjoy the journey through the verdant Tuscan countryside: silvery olive groves, gently rolling hills dotted with golden farmhouses and quaint parish churches. Stop for lunch in a pleasant typical country trattoria and sample the best of the local fare. 

After lunch visit another gem of Tuscany, delightful San Gimignano, for a leisurely stroll and a browse in the charming shops. Renowned as “the city of beautiful towers” it is certainly one of Tuscany’s most iconic and well-preserved ancient towns in the whole of Italy and has been used as a background in many movies. Roam the quaint cobblestone streets, see the graceful tall towers and browse the pretty shops lined by bottles of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, premium saffron, dainty hand-woven linens and precious hand-made Santa Fina pottery. After visiting San Gimignano set off once more, this time through the hills.

Admire the vineyards and, as the light starts changing and crimson-hued clouds come forth, stop at a charming boutique winery for a brief visit and memorable dinner. Crown your day in typical Tuscan style: a luscious gourmet dinner and sublime estate wines.
Our signature Siena private tour, with San Gimignano and gourmet dining is an unforgettable Tuscan lifestyle experience.
