SIENA AND SAN GIMIGNANO

A trip that takes you back in time to two of the most beautiful medieval sites of Italy

 

Our English speaking driver will meet you directly at your hotel lobby and will drive with a luxury van to San Giminiano and Siena. The first part of our tour will be a visit to San Giminiano, located about 1 hour away from Florence. This is a medieval town, one of the so called "walled town" because of the walls around the tonw used for protection, typical of the Middle Age. This is a beautiful labyrinth of narrow streets and tiny shops of local products such as cheese, meats and ceramics, a timeless little medieval “Borgo”, located on top a hill. Then for the second part of our tour we will move to Siena,  declared by Unesco a World Heritage Site. This city is very famous because of its Piazza, where every summer a typical horse race called Palio takes place. The main sites of this city, apart from the city itself, are the Siena Cathedral, dating back to the 12th century, the suqare of the Palio which is shaped like a shell and the little shops located in the narrow strees. Before going back to your accommodation, you will have the chance to taste typical dishes in a local restaurant and admire one of the most beautiful landscapes of the area made of green hills and colorful flowers and fruits.

This is an 8 hour private tour that includes professional driver/guide, air conditioned luxury vehicle, gasoline, eventual highway fee, driver's meal. Lunch is not included in the price

Meeting point: Hotel Lobby (just if your hotel is in central Florence).
