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.

Even though it was a rainy day, this tour was a highlight of our trip to Italy. Our guide, Alessandro, was knowledgeable, engaging, and had a good sense of humor.
The transportation was comfortable and everything ran on time. Thank you, Antonio, for a safe and pleasant trip!
Siena was fantastic, just wish we had been able to spend more time there. Lunch in the countryside vineyard was delicious. The host was welcoming, food was plentiful, and many of the items were available for purchase in the shop. San Gimignano meant a stop for the best gelato in Tuscany they have the award on display. Pisa, other than the tower and adjacent buildings in the Field of Miracles, did not have as much appeal as the other towns we saw.
Overall, a good way to see the Best of Tuscany.

Get a good night's rest and put on your most comfy shoes! If you want to hit all these places and only have 1 day then this is the one for you. Fantastic full day/early evening tour starts with drive to Siena for walking tour and includes time in the gorgeous Duomo, then heads to a winery and farm estate for luncheon the friendly farm doggie gets lots of attention and belly rubs from tourists missing their babies back home. The winery's goods are very reasonably priced and the staff if very helpful and quick. They do take credit cards and will also bubble wrap your wine for travel. A short drive and free time in San Gimignano a quaint small village with lots of shops and cafes to relax in follows before the final drive to Pisa. If you're not doing the leaning tower tour then the time is all on own. Unfortunately, that area of Pisa is overrun with tourist trappy junk vendors so you just may want to plan to bring a refreshment/snack and relax in the field by the tower and church. There is lots of walking on this tour and some steep slopes and stairs you will encounter in Siena and San G! The wonderful guide Elisa and I'm sure others was happy to assist with calling taxis and helping however she could if you can't quite handle all the walking which I couldn't due to bum knees. Yes, you do need to bring cash to pay for your taxis if you can't/don't want to do the distance walking. The countryside you pass on the drives is stunning, btw!! Our guide Elisa was top notch and genuine and Mauro sp? was our friendly driver from Walkabout Tours.

This was a great tour. Elise was a fantastic tour guide. She was very knowledgable about Tuscany and very nice and helpful. Siena and San Gimiangno were very cool, medieval towns to see and the countryside views from the bus were amazing! Lunch was very pleasant at a nice farm/winery. Seeing the leaning tower of Pisa was a must too. I'm very glad we booked this tour and would recommend it!

This was a wonderful tour of many small villages, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and several Unesco World Heritage sites. The 2 guides were fantastic and knowledgeable. And the meal in the Chianti region was delicious as were the wines. Another highlight was seeing the Tower of Pisa, although we chose not to do the climb to the top. Although many Viators that I have been on say all-day I have found this usually means 5-6 hrs, but this really was an all-day tour. It leaves early and gets back to Florence late in the evening so be prepared. Highly recommended.

This one day excursion could not have been planned better . Our guide Olivia was great providing just the right amount of information. All the stops were well planned and had enough free time to do a little exploring on your on . The local guide in Siena was a nice touch and added to the experience

I would definitely book this excursion again and absolutely would recommend walkabout Florence

My family and I really enjoyed this tour. Siena was wonderful as well as San Gimignano. The lunch at the vineyard was really wonderful. The food and wine were enjoyable and the views amazing. We were lucky it was a beautiful day. Pisa was a nice quick visit. The only complaint I would have is that we ended up being the end of the line to get on the bus at the beginning and my family and I were split up for the whole time during bus rides. It was a long time. We could have been asked if there was a way to put us a little closer as there were a few people that were singles. The person next to me slept every chance he got. Otherwise, it was a great experience and our tour guide was also very knowledeable- Her name was Lovina I think.
