What You Can Expect
On the way to San Gimignano, you will stop in Monteriggioni, one of the most classical towns in Italy. This small village was built by the Senesis in the years 1213-1219 on a hillock overlooking the Cassia Road. Here, you'll have the chance to enjoy a true Tuscan meal (additional cost).
After lunch, you will arrive in San Gimignano, built on a hill that dominates the Elsa Valley, with towers that date back to the 11th century. In San Gimignano, you can admire famous sites like the Duomo, the Collegiate Church, the Palazzo del Popolo, the Palazzo Nuovo del Podestà (which is now the town hall) and the S. Agostino Church. Or simply enjoy your free time by people-watching in a local bar or shopping till you drop in the local shops. When you’ve finished exploring San Gimignano, jump back in your luxury minivan for your transfer back to your ship in Livorno.
For a more in depth experience, upgrade your tour to include a private guide for two hours in Siena and San Gimignano and entrance into the cathedral. If you don’t upgrade, you’ll simply explore Siena and San Gimignano on your own.

Simone was waiting for us when we got off the ship and took us in her huge van to Siena and Chianti wine country. She was very knowledgable about the are and took some great back roads along the way. She got us close to all the sites and then left us to wander on our own. She was a great driver and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and traveling with her. She was most accommodating. thank you Simone!
By far the best tour I've ever taken! The tour guide was informative, courteous and respectful. A very pleasurable experience!
