What You Can Expect
After a scenic, 2-hour drive through the Tuscan countryside, arrive in Siena. Home to the Palio di Siena – the famous horse races held twice a year in the town square – Siena is an incredibly beautiful city, with quaint streets and one of the most spectacular cathedrals in Italy. Designed in Gothic style, the Siena Cathedral tantalizes the eye with a rare, striped marble.
After exploring Siena, hop back in the car to visit the quaint village of Monteriggioni. Built on a hill overlooking the Cassia Road in the early 13th century, you'll have the chance to enjoy a traditional Tuscan meal (additional cost) in this historic place.
Continue to the hilltop town of San Gimignano, with towers dating back to the 11th century. Stroll around the charming streets to admire the Palazzo del Popolo, the Duomo, the St Agostino Church and more. After exploring by foot, enjoy some free time to peruse the small shops or people-watch. Your shore excursion will conclude with private transportation back to your cruise port in Livorno.
Upgrade your ticket to include a 2-hour tour in Siena and San Gimignano with a private guide, including admission into the Siena Cathedral. Otherwise, enjoy exploring both towns independently.

Davide was a superb tour guide and arranged for a luncheon which was a highlight of our trip. Very punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and conversational.
This was our favorite excursion of the trip.
THE TOUR WAS WONDERFUL.SIENA WAS A REAL TREAT,ESPECIALLY WALKING DOWN THE NARROW CURVED MEDIEVAL STEETS.IT GAVE ONE THE FEELING YOU WERE STEPPING BACK CENTURIES AGO.WE CHANGED OUR TOUR FROM SAN GIMIGNANO TO VOLTARRE.VOLTARRE WAS VERY PRETTY SITUATED HIGH ON THE MOUNTAIN WITH A BREATHTAKING VIEW.IT WAS SMALLER THAN SIENA BUT JUST AS NICE WITH THE SAME NARROW STEETS.
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!
