Full description
Many centuries ago, Siena competed with Florence for power, wealth, and artistic beauty. On this 8-hour tour you’ll head out from Florence in a comfortable air-conditioned minivan with an English speaking driver and tour leader for a full-day tour of Siena and the surrounding area. Enjoy a guided walking tour of the compact city center, and visit Piazza del Campo, the main central square, where the famous Palio horse race takes place every year. Take a walk through the quieter back streets as well, and learn about the contrade, the 17 medieval city districts that compete against each other in the Palio. During your time in Siena you’ll also enjoy a surprise tasting of a typical local product. The tour continues on to San Gimignano, famed for it's medieval skyscrapers, high walls, and narrow streets that are characteristic of a typical Tuscan hill town. You’ll see a number of well-preserved tower houses and other centuries-old monuments. After some free time in San Gimignano, you’ll experience the sunset in the Tuscan hills and then enjoy a typical Tuscan dinner at a location in the Chianti countryside.  At the end of the tour you’ll return to Florence in the comfort of the minivan.

great tour with great company

This is really a great tour where you combine Siena and San Gimignano in a most comfortable way. We had great guides, a fantastic dinner and the organization went on perfect. The only negative thing was the timing. We did not see neither city by night as I would assume to see. San Gimignano would have been lovely to see by night. But apart that, perfect tour.

Great towns, enthusiast guide, fun time

My husband and I enjoyed this tour. We had small group, only 4 in our van so we had very personal attention and could ask questions which the guide was very knowledgeable. Our guide was very passionate about the region, culture and people. He knew the history and had some interesting and sometimes funny antidotes about the area and people of this region. He made the tour a fun adventure
