After being picked up from your hotel in Florence, your private driver will take you first to the medieval city of Siena. Begin with a private tour of the Siena Cathedral, admiring the unique marble stripes of its interior as well as the Piccolomini Library, which hosts illuminated choir books and frescoes. Your tour will continue to the Piazza del Campo, the famed site of the Palio di Siena, the horse races held twice a year. Afterward, soak up some free time to continue exploring independently or to purchase lunch.
Reunite with your driver and travel to the walled medieval city of San Gimignano. Resting on the top of a hill, explore the area’s impressive Romanesque and Gothic architecture, frescoes, towers and more.
After, hop back in the car and begin the return trip to Florence. Along the way, take in the scenic countryside of Monteriggioni.
If you would like any special interests (architecture, history, art) highlighted in your private tour, please list them at the time of booking so that your local guide in Siena can accommodate you.
