What It Is
The Tuscan province is known for its fine wines, medieval towns and scenic landscape. On this full-day trip from Florence you will travel to some of the finest locations Tuscany has to offer.
After climbing aboard your luxury coach you'll travel out of the city and through rolling hills to Siena. On the way you can enjoy the commentary of a friendly local guide, or simply sit back and admire the view.
You will have approximately 90 minutes free time within the walled city, take your time to wonder the tight streets, chill on Piazza del Campo or visit the Contrada's Museum and the magnificent San Domenico Basilica.
In the afternoon you'll travel to the charming hilltop town of San Gimignano where you can explore the historic centre independently before continuing to a typical Tuscan winery. You'll be guided on a gentle stroll of the vineyards, then sample 4 locally produced wines and complementary foods. Feel free to purchase a bottle of your favourite wine from the winery, or save your shopping for our final stop in the village of Greve in Chianti.
After a full day trip you will return by coach to Central Florence.
