What You Can Expect

Siena with Palio’s Contrada, San Gimignano and Chianti, Day Trip from Florence with Wines and Food Tasting

San Gimignano

Depart from central Florence (near Santa Maria Novella train station) and ride south through the Tuscan countryside by coach.

After a scenic drive past the vineyards, arrive in Siena. Admire the Renaissance artwork inside with your guide before taking off on a walking tour. Take note of the uniquely 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, take 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 to sample fine local wines, accompanied by snacks.

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

Please note that the order of the visits may change.

An excellent day, well run. Visited 4 places that were all amazing. The highlight was the enthusiasm with which our guide exhibited at the wine tasting.

This was a fun tour, but keep in mind there is a LOT of walking...! Local tour of Siena was outstanding and very informative. Wine tasting was excellent and very well done. Pick up location is quite difficult to find...nowhere to sit..

Excellent tour. Really well organised and the guides were fabulous. The Siena guide who explained the Contrada and the Palio was wonderful. I would have loved a little longer in San Gimignano. In Siena we also took the tour of the Cathedral spectacular but then we had no time to do any shopping but I guess you cant have everything. We had a fabulous day even though it was quite long. My only small criticism would be better instructions for finding the tour start point. There were lots of renovations at the train station so it was a bit of a challenge finding the bus stop.

Great trip and good value for the price of the tour. Four stops all good. Obviously, when your making four stop you don't have as much time to explore as you want at each place but I'm glad we took this tour instead of one that just covers Siena. Be prepared for 11 hour day.....8:30 AM to 7:30 PM. Enjoy!!!
