Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Meet your local guide before heading for the hills on a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside. Your first stop for the day is gothic Siena, famous for its medieval streets. Choose to join a guided tour through the city(free entry inside the Cathedral is included). Or, alternatively, you're free to marvel the sights of Siena at your own pace, enjoy a drink in an open air cafe and meet the locals.

Enjoy a stroll among Chianti vineyards, olive groves and wine cellars before indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch amongst the Sienese hills where Chianti wine is produced. Surrounded by grapes vines you'll have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers while feasting on local foods including cold meats, salads, pasta and bread. A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

After lunch you will visit San Gimignano where you can roam the maze of cobbled streets and small squares, grab a gelato and walk between San Gimignano's famous 14 towers. Your final stop is Pisa, where you can take an up-close inspection of The Leaning Tower, view the Cathedral, the Baptistery and monumental Cemetery in Pisa before venturing back to Florence where your full-day tour concludes.

One of the best tours I've ever been on! Truly fantastic. The day was well-planned, the guide Lavi was phenomenal, and the incredible lunch was included in the price. Don't miss.

Our guide Olivia was wonderful! She was friendly, kind, informative and attentive. It was a very long day but planned out effectively. It would have been very difficult for us to see these magnificent places on our own and this tour was a great option. Our driver Ricardo made us feel very safe. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see the regions outside of Florence.

Great tour. The itinerary was a full day but the sights were great and well worth the trip. Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa are perfect together. Highlights included seeing the Leaning Tower in Pisa, arguably the best gelato in the world in San Gimignano, and the trip to the vineyard in Tuscany where we sampled 4 wines and had a wonderful lunch. The guide was very knowledgeable about all of the sites.

Our guide was Lavi. She was very informative, full of energy and from San G!!! The trip was amazing, with her giving us insights on sights and sounds, but also balancing it with giving us our silent time to take in the landscapes. The Wine tasting at San G was fantastic, well worth the wait, wish we had picked up a few more wines. Excellent value for money and something I guess we can go once more the next time we are in Florence.

Olivia was awesome! Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Totally recommend her. Would love to do the tour again with her. She offered genuine caring information from the questions we asked her. She knew her stuff. Did her job with a caring heart. U can tell she enjoys her job! I loved all of the tour that day. The very best of our entire trip of Italy for my 78 year old mom, and 22 year old daughter and myself was this day! We have great memories and photos! I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to go thru this tour with Olivia!
