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.
Sample Lunch Menu includes:
Gloria was incredible! Very informative, and incredibly sweet. The tour was beautiful and something I'll always remember. I would've liked a little more time to shop in Siena. Also, the last stop in Pisa was a little unnecessary for me.
I have taken a similar tour out of Florence before and thought it exceptional. I took this one with my niece and found it equally rewarding. Susan was an exceptional guide. I'm home again and waiting patiently for the arrival of the olive oil and wine I ordered from the beautiful, self contained farm that hosted our lunch. Hope everyone that can, will take this tour and if you are lucky...Susan will be your host.
Wonderful! Exactly as I had pictured Tuscany to be!
Alex was very knowledgeable, good sense of humour and helpful. Except the rains in Siena everything was beautiful and exciting more than expected. The church in Siena was worthseeing. The wine tasting and the food was yummy and the ride in Pisa was memorable!!
It was an amazing tour. I would recommend it to all those who want to visit the tuscan countryside and dont have much time to spare. Our tour Guide Elisa was amazing and you would be lucky to have her as she makes the entire tour much more fun. Time spent in each city was more than enough. Looking at the duration please dont at all feel it is a very long tour as i would say my family and i werent tired at all after the tour. You get enough time on the bus to rest. Lunch at Fattoria Poggio Alloro was amazing and if you are wine lovers do buy their wine and guess what they ship as well : Overall, i would suggest you definitely take this tour.
I have always dreamed of going to Tuscany, and this tour was a dream come true! The 12 hour day flew by and was packed with amazing scenery, delicious food, and fascinating information from our delightful and informative guide Jada. One of my best days ever!!!!
Terrific tour! Highly recommended.
I loved the tour guide Gloria, and this tour is great if you enjoy visiting towns soaked with history, and looking at ancient/rustic architecture. I felt that we spent just enough time at each place, and the lunch at the farm was very enjoyable. After an entire morning of walking around under the hot sun, taking a couple hours at the wine tasting indoors is just what your feet needs.
