What You Can Expect

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.

From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time.

After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.

Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.

Tour was great. Our guide Alessandro was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Great way to get out and see several cool places that we probably wouldn and #39;t have seen otherwise and without having to worry about planning how to do so.

The tour was amazing! Valerie and Nando were such great hosts for the tour and went above and beyond to have water on the bus and give us tips for where to get the best views in each city. The food at the farm for lunch was great! Generous servings and each course was paired with wine. 10/10 loved it!

We really enjoyed this tour. It was a nice way to see a lot of Tuscany, and we liked all of the towns we visited. Our tour guide Alessandro and driver Marco were great! The highlight of the day was the vineyard and the delicious wine there.

Eliza was amazing. Came prepared, very knowledgeable, easy to listen and follow through the day. Even went through the expense of hiring a location expert guide in Siena to give us more of inside history. Donatella was great. The entire day was absolutely magical. The highlight of our entire trip to Italy. The stop at the farm and lunch was a great touch to get the feel of Tuscan life and style. Would love to comeback and go onto another trip lead by Eliza. Thank you Eliza and team for that magical day!!!

This is a must book tour. Our tour guide Elisa was fantastic. We went to Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. All three great little city that are a must see. The lunch was Amazing. The wineyard was beautiful and they ship to anywhere so no need to carry around the wine you buy. We loved it. I would recommend getting the ticket to climb the leaning tower of Pisa, it was a great view.
