OVERVIEW

Depart from Florence and travel out of the city in your air-conditioned coach toward the amazing Siena. Guided tour will include the visit to the most famous monuments and squares: the Cathedral and the Baptistery, Ospedale di Santa Maria della Scala, Palazzo Salimbeni, Palazzo Tolomei, Piazza del Campo and the Sanctuary of Santa Caterina, the patron of the city.

Continue on through the rolling hills of the Chianti wine region to Monteriggioni, a fortified hilltop village founded in 1214 by the Republic of Siena to protect its northern territory from the incursions of the rival Florence. Here we'll enjoy an authentic three courses tuscan lunch paired with the most genuine Chianti wine.

Next, hop back in your coach and continue onward to San Gimignano, famous for its 13th century "fine" towers, the saffron locally produced since the medieval times, and the local white wine "Vernaccia di San Gimignano". Guided excursion includes a stop to the panoramic view, the visit to the "1300 Ceramic Museum" and the stop to the Dondoli world champion gelato maker.

On the way back to Florence we will stop at Piazzale Michelangelo which is considered one of the most romantic spots of the city.

We'll have lunch at il Feudo, a typical italian restaurant located inside the stunning castle of Monteriggioni, built by Siena in 1213 to protect the region by the incursions of the florentines. We'll start with a simple bruschetta (basil, olive oil and fresh tomatoes), to continue on with an authentic taste of Tuscany: "pici" (traditional kind of pasta) with wild boar ragu and "saccottini" (similar to tortellini) with pera and pistacchio. As dessert the traditional "Cantuccini and Vin Santo". All this, of course, paired with a bottle of the best Chianti!

03:00 pm

Next stop will be in San Gimignano, one of the most attractive medieval towns in Tuscany. We'll have the opportunity to walk on the ancient pilgrim route called "Via Francigena". We'll stop at "1300 Ceramic Museum" and "Dondoli world champion gelato". We'll also visit the panoramic view over the surrounding rolling hills.
