Must Do: Excursion to Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti - € 58,00

 

Absolutely a "must do" excursion!
The beauty of the landscape, the exquisite food, the fine company and the enchanting atmosphere make this excursion a must.
The bus leaves Florence and stops in the quaint ancient hamlet of Monteriggioni. Inside the city walls of this magical place you will be able to savour the pulsing heart of all that is Tuscan.
Next on our journey is Siena where we will arrive just in time for lunch (not included). You will have some free time to grab something fantastic to eat and then you will enjoy a guided tour of the city. One of the richest cities in culture and art, Siena will enchant you. We will walk along the cobbled streets to the Cathedral, where our visit inside will offer a wonderful example of Renaissance art. Next is Piazza del Campo (otherwise known simply as il Campo). This is the secular heart of Siena, a sloping amphitheatre of a square, which is the setting of the dramatic Palio horse race.
Our journey continues to one of the quaintest Tuscan towns ever, San Gimignano, with its world renowned Medieval towers.
Unesco has chosen the centre of this town to be World Heritage.
Let the atmosphere of this delightful place, where time seems to stand still, not 100 but 1000 years, enchant you.
Along the way we will stop in a lovely wine shop to have a Chianti wine tasting moment which will be accompanied by an assortment of cheese, salami and bruschetta.
Once we have finished our wine tasting we will head back to Florence.
