Overview

With or without a wine tasting, Italian roads are not for the faint-hearted. Save yourself the pain of navigating Tuscany on this tour that covers three regional highlights: a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Siena, the medieval walled hill town of San Gimignano, and a wine tasting in the scenic Chianti region. It’s tailor-made for time-pressed travelers.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and group in central Florence and board a comfortable, air-conditioned coach. With a local guide, explore the highlights of UNESCO-listed Siena, including the Basilica di San Domenico, and learn about the Palio horse race at a contrada (district) museum. Upgrade to tour the Siena Cathedral and gain skip-the-line access to Biblioteca Piccolomini.

Your next stop is the medieval walled town of San Gimignano. Wander at will away from your group and capture photos of the timeless scene. Finally, drive through the rolling hills of Chianti wine country and visit a winery to sample four fantastic local vintages. After shopping for souvenirs at Greve’s artisan stores, return to your original departure point.

Siena - WOW!

Our guide, Frederica, was excellent and very considerate of people's needs during the tour. I would say that for strangers to Florence the bus meeting point at the start of the tour is not easy to find. Thank goodness for Google Maps walking guide! We...More

nice tour if you are short on time

First, know what you are booking. In each stop on the tour, you could spend a day or more exploring, especially in Sienna. Yes, listening to the same information in three languages might be tedious at times, but don't be so gloomy and enjoy your...More
