Depart from your Pisa hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan destined for the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of Siena. During the 1.5-hour journey, admire the stunning scenery of the Tuscan countryside and then disembark on arrival in Siena, a city that seems to be frozen in time.
Stroll the city on a guided tour, if the guide option was selected at booking, or explore streets shrouded in artistic heritage independently. Marvel at the grand stature of the 13th-century Siena Cathedral, a structure that boasts a façade considered one of Italy’s finest; absorb the atmosphere of the Piazza di Campo, around which the entire city is built; and admire the sacred Battistero di San Giovanni (St Giovanni Baptistery) during your exploration.
Travel onward to San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site home to 13 imposing stone towers nicknamed ‘Medieval Manhattan’. Stroll the quaint cobbled streets and allow your attention to be directed to some of the finest ancient architecture in Tuscany.
Conclude your comprehensive tour with a relaxed wine tasting session at an ambient wine cellar near San Gimignano; converse with your fellow travellers and listen as your guide provides fascinating commentary on Tuscany’s rich history.
Sated by two complimentary glasses of wine, relax during the journey back to your Pisa hotel, where the tour concludes.
