Historic Siena

Your first stop on this Tuscany day trip is the famous city of Siena. Divided into 17 contrade (districts, each neighborhood is represented by a mascot and the rivalry is fierce. Each year, the city is home to the Palio. This horse race has been run since the middle ages and occurs twice a year in Siena's central square Piazza del Campo. On tour you will see the site of this great race as well as the city's great Cathedral. You will also learn about Siena's vast history in finance including being home to the oldest bank in existence. 

San Gimignano - Medieval Manhattan

The next stop on this Tuscany Day Trip is an incredible place known as “Medieval Manhattan”. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, San Gimignano is known for the towers that bring to mind modern day skyscrapers. Once inside the city walls, enjoy some free time to explore this remarkable and historic town. 

Chianti Farmhouse for Wine and Lunch

Continue your journey through the Chianti hills and olive groves before arriving at a traditional family-run farmhouse. In one of our favorite wine regions, learn about famous grapes and the wine-making process from vine to bottle! And of course, taste the local products for yourself, since what's better than wine and food? Sit down for a delicious lunch of locally-grown products from the family's farm, staying true to the Italian slow food movement and traditions of Tuscan cuisine. Lunch and wine are included.

Chianti Region to Florence

After a full day of Chianti wine tasting and a visit to a medieval village, it's time to head back to Florence. And because you're with us, there's no need to worry about catching trains or navigating the highways. Simply sit back and relax after your full day tour. All you have to do is enjoy the scenic ride back to Florence and your accommodations.

Best idea ever.

My wife and I booked this tour in December for our Italy trip. Due to the time of year, we were the only ones scheduled that day for the tour. It honestly couldn’t have gone better. Three stops: Piazzale Michelangelo, the town of San Gimignano and the winery for some wine samples and lunch with views of Tuscany. Both of our guides were super informative and just a blast to hang out with. If you’re considering something like this to “get out” of Florence for a bit, this is it!!!’

A great day

This tour was relaxing, informative and such a great day from start to finish. After being in the cities for a little bit, getting outside to see Tuscany was a perfect option. The winery we went to was super welcoming and had a great spread of food and tastings for us. Thanks for a great day!
