Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti day tour from Florence

  • DRIVING TOUR FROM FLORENCE – 8 HRS

We offer you a private customized tour of the most spectacular sights of the Chianti region, Siena and San Gimignano with our comfortable and air conditioned Sedan/Van departing from Florence. You will have a fluent English speaking driver, very knowledgeable who will drive you through the discovery of this beautiful and popular wine area of Tuscany.

The Chianti region is located between the city of Florence, Siena and Arezzo, it is certainly the most representative landscape of Tuscany with its hilly roads between the vineyards and olive trees, and the wine is today known all over the world.

Siena, San Gimignano and the Chianti have maintained a medieval atmosphere that calls to mind the splendors of the past. Nowadays these cities are must-see locations for the discerning visitor who wishes to experience their unspoilt beauty. We will visit Monteriggioni, well known worldwide for its wine and its countryside of unrivalled charm, where woods alternate with vineyards and olive groves, in a landscape dotted with Romanesque churches, farmhouses, villas and castles.

Next on our itinerary is Siena where you will be enchanted by the splendid Cathedral built  in a Romanesque/ Gothic style and by the Palazzo Comunale (town hall). This palace is situated in the picturesque Piazza del Campo, in which the famous Palio takes place every year.

Free time for lunch, if you need suggestions, ask us!

We will then reach San Gimignano. Declared by UNESCO to be a world heritage site, San Gimignano is also known as the “city of the beautiful towers”: here you can still admire 14 medieval towers, once a symbol of the power and wealth of their inhabitants.

Our tour of the Chianti territory will give you the opportunity to enjoy beautiful landscapes from knolls, streets and piazzas which have remained virtually the same over the centuries. We will conclude our tour with a visit to a renowned vineyard, reviewed in the best wine journals, with a snack consisting of salami, cheese, and different kinds of bruschetta as well as a selection of fine wines.

Return to Florence.
