Meet your guide in central Siena and hop aboard your coach toward San Gimignano. Learn about the UNESCO-listed town from your guide as you go, a destination complete with impressive towers, old city walls and set on a hill overlooking the Val d’Elsa valley.
After arriving, explore the medieval town at your own speed. Stroll along the ancient pilgrimage trail of Via Francigena, check out the architecture in Piazza del Duomo or browse the artisan pottery and crafts in the local shops.
Then reunite with your guide and journey to the Chianti region, celebrated for its world-class wine and stunning landscape. Take a winery tour, exploring the vineyards, bottling rooms and cellars of a Tuscan estate.
After learning about the production process, treat your palette to an array of reds and whites, noting the distinct characteristics of each. A selection of traditional Tuscan snacks, such as local cheeses, bruschetta or cured meats, will complement your tastings.
After five hours of sightseeing and fine wine, your tour will conclude with transportation back to Siena.
Please note: occasionally this tour may run in reverse order, meaning your visit to Chianti will take place before San Gimignano.
