If you are short of time and you are only in Florence for a few days, then this is the perfect tour that allows you to see the best of Tuscany in ONLY 1 DAY!
The tour departs from Florence at 9:00am on a 8 seat van. During the day we'll visit the historic city of SIENA where you will be enchanted by the architectural styles of the cathedral and the old palace in Piazza del Campo, the venue of the famous Palio horse race held twice a year in July and August. After an orientation walk with your guide you will be left free to explore the town, sit in one of the many cafe to relax or discover the hidden streets of this magical town.
The walled town of MONTERIGGIONI will be one of our stops on the way to Siena just to give our passengers the possibility to be part of where the Gladiator was filmed and visit THE most preserved Medieval town in Tuscany.
We will then continue towards SAN GIMIGNANO, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most famous walled medieval hill town in Tuscany also reknown as the " Manatthan of Tuscany " due to the many towers. On the way to the village our guide will give you maps and tips about the best places to visit and you will have free time to wander through the narrow and characteristic streets and check out the local shops selling the Tuscan delicacies. Don't forget that San Gimignano is also the place where the word champion gelato maker is based... so make sure to have some cash with you to spoil yourself.
