Siena, San Gimingnano and Chianti with Ice Cream and Wine Tasting from Florence

Extra1
Be seduced by the beauty and tranquility of the wonderful Tuscan countryside on this luxurious day tour from Florence. In a breathtaking golden landscape of wildflowers, vineyards and black cypress trees rising against the soft Mediterranean sunlight, discover sleepy towns, beautiful Italian architecture and some of the world's most delicious wines. Your first stop is San Gimignano, a small walled medieval hill town that served as an important rest stop for pilgrims travelling to Rome on the Via Francigena. Here, more than 70 tower houses were originally built by the patricians of the town to demonstrate their wealth and power, and the feudal atmosphere still lingers in the tiny medieval streets. Visit the Palazzo Comunale, which has housed the town council since the 13th century and contains many important frescoes dating back to that time. Then it’s on to gorgeous Siena where you'll explore the beautiful cathedral, one of the great examples of Italian Romanesque-Gothic architecture, with incredible frescoes and gold leaf work inside. Stroll around the Piazza del Campo where the famous Palio horse race take place every year, and then move on to Chianti to visit a wine cellar and sample some of the beautiful local wines, some still served in typical squat ‘fiasco’ bottles in a straw basket. You will also enjoy some free time to explore the commune of Monteriggioni, the medieval town mentioned in the poet Dante Alighieri’s masterpiece, The Inferno. Discover the beautiful landscapes of the region that inspired the great Renaissance masters with this day tour of beautiful Tuscany.
