What You Can Expect

Siena, San Gimignano and Greve in Chianti Day Trip from Florence with Wine Tasting

Admire the beautiful Siena Duomo

Depart from central Florence and ride south through the Tuscan countryside by coach. Gaze out at the olive groves, green hills and vineyards that make the Chianti region so stunning.

Arrive in Siena, heading first to the Basilica of San Domenico. Admire the Renaissance artwork inside with your guide before taking off on a walking tour. Pause to marvel at the striped marble of the Siena Cathedral and then enter one of the city's contrada museums.

Learn the history behind the contrades, or districts, of the city as you wander the exhibits. Hear about the individual traditions of each still celebrated today during the famous Palio horse race, which takes place in the main square twice a year. Afterward, relax with a brief break to purchase lunch.

Continue to San Gimignano, a medieval hill town best known for its impressive towers and frescoes. Soak up some free time to explore its streets independently before traveling to a small winery in the Chianti hillside. Walk in the vineyards, visit the barrel room and sample four delicious local wines, accompanied by snacks.

Top off your trip with a visit to the charming village of Greve in Chianti to peruse the local shops and main square. Your trip will conclude with transportation back to Florence.

Amazing visit to San Gimignano to begin. Very knowledgeable guide Donatella explains everything on the way and you can tell she is passionate about Italy!
Siena was a major highlight. Medieval italian town and absolutely stunning to visit... and stay longer!
Grève in Chianti was a stop at a local Vine Yard with wine tasting and product samples. The wine was wonderful but especially the site... Beautiful landscapes, valleys and mountains along with grape vines. Lots of time for photo opportunities :-

This was a perfect way to explore the Tuscany/Chianti region with limited time in Italy. The walking tour of Siene was very informative and our time in San Gimignano was charming. A solid foundation for future exploration of the Italian countryside.

Really nice and comprehensive one day tour.
Ends up having more families and kids rather than younger people but for somebody who wants to go to all the above places near Florence which are very difficult to get to otherwise because of lack of proper public transport this is still a great one day tour. Sam Gimignano and Siena are gorgeous and please don't miss the optional walking tour in Siena, that's really nice.
