Scenic drive, the wonderful city of Siena: Pure Tuscany

Enjoy the very best of what Siena has to offer, both on and off the beaten track... and feel the city, and its tragic history, come alive through the stories and anecdotes of your expert guide! Our walk of Siena is unlike any other company’s! You’ll see all of the most popular sites, including the Palazzo Pubblico in the Piazza del Campo, where the famous “Palio” (“Horserace”) is annually played. And that’s not to forget its Torre del Mangia, eerie and moving glimpses of what it must have been like to be a bell ringer. and the Cathedral of Siena, with its beautiful mosaics and pope Pius’ library and its unfinished gigantic walls; you will climb up and experience a panoramic walk with a breathtak- ing scenario of Tuscany. Then enjoy a classic meal in Siena, of course recom- mended by our expert guide. Leaving the city, you will discover how Tus- cany magically evokes images of extraordinary beauty, from which a por- trait emerges of a place outside time, far from the world, and close to the soul. Gently rolling hills dotted with solitary cypress trees and here and there by castles and medieval villages; stone towns behind whose walls are preserved treasures carved from marble, painted on canvas and on the walls of churches and buildings, terracotta jars giving off the intoxicating smell of olive oil; old cellars stacked high with flasks and bottles of fine wine; pre- cious, handcrafted objects in old workshops. On our way, we will explore this gourmet paradise, offering exceptional local experiences of Italian wines, cheeses, olive oils, and local history. We will stop at a nearby winery, where we can sample our Chianti wines. After the visit, we will continue strolling in our private van in this beautiful part of Chianti with charming hill towns such as Radda and Montefioralle and Greve in Chianti.
