What You Can Expect

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.

From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time.

After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.

Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.

Was better then expected. Beautiful scenery, covered three major sites and the tour guide was a plus. She spoke with us as a group as well as to individually, making the trip more personal. I would def recommend the one day sightseeing tour to anyone looking for a quality tour with value.

Fabulous day traveling through the Tuscan countryside with the local vendor 'Walkabout! The towns of Siena and San Giagnamo are incredible but participants need to be warned that the walking isn't just 'moderate' it involves a significant amount of uphill grades. The lunch at the vineyard was spectacular! The views are indescribable!! Food and wine offerings were generous versus the pitiful portions on the Cinque Terra tour, a different local vendor. Also, this vendor took us by a cute trolley ride from the parking lot in Pisa to the sights AND then offered us a trolley ride through the town of Pisa with commentary. We did the Pisa tour just 2 weeks earlier with a different local vendor and had to walk 15 minutes in extreme heat to/from the bus parking lot, only saw the area with the Duomo, Bapistry and Tower, but did get free admission to the Duomo, which we didn't with this group. Pay the admission and get the trolley ride!! Sandra was our guide and she was charming, intelligent, considerate...just terrific! This tour is a very long day, but the bus rides allowed us to relax between towns. Make sure your camera has LOTS of memory because you will take 100s of photos!!

must do ..........fantastic tour guide..
on the day of the tour Pisa was celebrating the Luminara and a huge number of people were expected arriving later in the day. Thanks to the tour operators , they reversed the travel schedule and we did Pisa first, climbed the leaning Tower and had a lovely little tour in the so called train.
Lovely lunch - they also catered to vegetarians. Drive through the scenic countryside with a equally engrossing commentary made this tour very delightful .The restroom breaks too were appropriately planned. The walk in Siena ,it's cathedral, the icecream at Dondoli's in San Gimignano - I want to take this tour again

All the stops on the tour were as beautiful as advertised, and the operator, walkabout, covered it at a good pace. The lunch was one of the the most memorable during our two-week stay in Italy! Make sure you have extra space in your luggage for a few bottles.
