A full day experience to discover Tuscany, with its different dimensions, landscapes, ancient towns, art masterpieces and food and wine traditions. A magnificent journey through the Middle Ages and Renaissance, exploring marvelous towns such as Siena and San Gimignano, gazing in awe at the world-renowned Pisa Leaning Tower, savoring typical Tuscan food on a delicious lunch and tasting some great Chianti wines at a prestigious winery, discovering fascinating Lucca. Starting from Florence, you will be taken to Siena by an English-speaking driver and tour leader. Here you will enjoy a guided walking tour of the ancient town that will let you discover also Piazza del Campo, the main central square where the famous Palio horse race takes place every year, as well as exploring quieter backstreets and learning everything about the Contrade, the 17 medieval city districts that compete against each other in the Palio. During the visit in Siena you will also have the opportunity to have a surprise tasting of a typical product. The journey continues to San Gimignano, renowned for its “medieval skyscrapers”, high walls and narrow streets that typify most people’s image of a Tuscan hill town. San Gimignano is unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its tower houses, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls, form an unforgettable skyline. After some free time in San Gimignano, you will reach a prestigious Chianti ancient winery. This property will be the ideal setting for a relaxed break during the day, letting you taste a delicious Tuscan lunch and taste some great Chianti wines, while learning about wine production and visiting their cellars.
Afterwards, you will reach Pisa and explore its famous Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracle Square), a magnificent space with the incredible cathedral and baptistry, all dominated by the world-renowned Leaning Tower and its unique and dramatic elegance. The next stop will be Lucca, a fascinating walled town rich in history and art, we do recommend you go up the wall to have an amazing panoramic view of the city and do not miss the beautiful amphitheater square where you will enjoy a relaxed aperitivo.
