Enjoy the sights of two gorgeous Tuscan hill towns in the Chianti area in one full-day trip from Rome.
Arrive first in the UNESCO-listed town of San Gimignano with its many Medieval towers. Stroll through the pretty historic center. Sample some Vernaccia, a white wine made in the area.
Stop at a winery in Chianti to visit a beautiful wine cellar. Taste 10 different kinds of wine and oil, and enjoy lunch in the restaurant of the estate.
Visit the historic center of Siena, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, to see the main square in town – the Piazza del Campo – where the annual Palio horse race is held. Marvel at the multi-colored facade of the Duomo and see the Mangia Tower before making your way back to Rome.
