What you will find

A tour dedicated to wine and landscape lovers! From Siena’s Piazza del Campo to San Gimignano, the town of towers that’s home to the famous Vernaccia white wine.

FULL PROGRAM

From the center of Florence you head into the ashtoning Chianti countryside; rolling hills, ancient hamlets and castles, accompany you journey to Siena.


As you explore the streets of the old town you discover that there’s a lot more to Siena than just its spectacular, century-old rivalry with Florence. From artists such as Simone Martini, Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti, all of whom were born here, to Palio, the most ancient road horse race in the world: The people of Siena care deeply about their traditions and treasure the talent that calls this place home.


Let’s not forget about the city’s location and yet another historic meaning! We walk along the main road which meets with the “Via Francigena”, the route pilgrims have been following on their way to Rome for thousands of years. As we move into the center of Siena, we find its shell-shaped heart. The picturesque Piazza del Campo is considered one of the most beautiful squares in the world — a place where time seems to have stopped. Here, you have some free time to grab a bite to eat or shop for souvenirs before we are making our way back to the van to reach our next destination: the marvelous San Gimignano. With its narrow stone walls and its astonishing, powerful towers, we are once again catapulted back to the middle ages. 


 In San Gimignano you have the chance to taste not just any gelato, but the creation of the Ice Cream World Champion himself!
