Siena and San Gimignano are two of Tuscany’s most picturesque medieval towns, but visiting on a group tour often means limited time for sightseeing. This private full-day tour from Florence offers plenty of time to explore the UNESCO-listed towns independently, with private transport and an itinerary tailored to your preferences.

Begin your day with a 9am pickup from your central Florence hotel. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, soak up the scenery on the around 1-hour journey to San Gimignano, winding through the picturesque vineyards of the Chianti wine region.
On arrival in San Gimignano, enjoy free time to explore independently. Perhaps admire the Romanesque and Gothic architecture of the UNESCO-listed medieval center; visit the Vernaccia Wine Museum; stop for gelato in Piazza della Cisterna; or visit landmarks such as the Dome, the Palazzo del Podestà, and the Church of Sant'Agostino.
Meet back up with your driver for the 45-minute journey to Siena, making a short stop in Monteriggioni along the way to admire the beautifully preserved walled town. After lunch (own expense), spend the afternoon exploring Siena, taking in highlights such as the Piazza del Campo, where the famous ‘Palio’ horse races are held, the magnificent marble-fronted Cathedral, the Fontana Gaia fountain, and the 90-meter high Torre del Mangia.
Finally, hop back in your private vehicle for the return journey to Florence, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
Please note: this tour is conducted with an English-speaking driver, but visits to the towns en-route will be independent. All entrance fees are at your own expense.
