We depart from Florence early in the morning to meet our guide in Siena. We'll walk with her to see the main monuments and squares: Basilica di San Domenico, Santuario di Santa Caterina, Duomo and Battistero, Ospedale di Santa Maria della Scala, Piazza del Campo with Fonte Gaia, Palazzo Pubblico and Torre del Mangia, Palazzo Tolomei and Palazzo Salimbeni. Along the way our expert guide will provide the basic information about the history of this incredible city and its most important cultural event, the Palio, a traditional and unique horse race taking place in Piazza del Campo twice a year. After the two hours walking excursion of the city we'll have an authentic three courses tuscan lunch at a local "osteria": great food and of course great Chianti wine! Next we'll visit the Cathedral of Siena (Duomo) assisted by our expert guide, and we'll enter the "Museo dell'Opera del Duomo" to enjoy the best panoramic view of Siena, the one from the "Facciatone". We'll leave Siena to Florence around 4 pm.

Great day out

Great experience, loved the horse riding, the town we visited was beautiful, unfortunately I was too hungover to do the wine tasting and lunch but the staff were so friendly and accomodating of my self inflicted illness which was much appreciated ! Would definitely come back to experience the whole day as per the actual plan..

Vespa Tour

The vespa tour was an absolute blast. Unfortunately the equipment supplied to Fun in Tuscany by a third party was not the most reliable, however, the scenery and ride was worth any trouble that may have been caused by said equipment.

A totally enjoyable day.

A totally enjoyable experience. Our guide, Guido, the self-proclaimed King of Tuscany did a great job. Our visit to the two wineries, that included lunches were both great. Also, the visit to San Gimignano was a pleasant time. One of the best memories of our stay in Florence.
