Know More about this tour

Start your day with hotel pickup from your central Florence hotel at around 9am. Make your way to Monteriggioni, mentioned in Dante's Divine Comedy. Monteriggioni was built between 1213 and 1219 and is a fortified village set high up on the hill with protective stone walls. Enjoy the panoramic view across the land that stretches from Florence to Siena. 

Next, visit Siena, a medieval city best known for its architecture and artistic history. Once in Siena, meet your local guide for a walking tour of the historic center. Visit the Italian Gothic cathedral in Palazzo Pubblico and take a stroll around the Piazza del Campo. 

Leave Siena behind for another iconic town, San Gimignano. There are 13 striking towers overlooking this delightful town. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the streets. It’s a perfect place for you to enjoy a meal and a glass of local wine (own expense) while you discover other hidden little gems this town has to offer. 

Finish your day with a visit to a local winery in Chianti. Here, you can experience a piece of traditional Tuscan life and learn about how wine is processed and produced. You will also have an opportunity to sample a variety of wines at a wine tasting at the end of your visit. At the end of your tour, return to your hotel in Florence.

  • The pros: Tuscany is beautiful and the weather was amazing. The van was clean and we felt safe throughout the entire tour. We were traveling with my older father who uses a walker, and our driver was very accommodating in helping us load/unload and to drive him to the tops of hills/etc to limit walking. The short walking tour in Siena was great and we learned the most during this short walking tour which was led by someone in affiliation with our booked Viator tour. She was fantastic!!!
    The cons: There is a lot of ground to cover on this tour. Probably too much, especially when your driver takes you to two wineries without us asking to do so versus the published one expectation. I know... it sounds like we shouldn't be complaining - right? But, we rushed from place to place and were disappointed that we had such little time in Monteriggioni and San Gimignano. After returning home that evening, we re-read the tour description and learned why we were so rushed throughout the day - our driver had added a stop at an additional winery earlier in the day. When we arrived at this winery, we had no idea that is wasn't the one that was included in our package. He didn't tell us. The package says that a wine tour, tasting, and light food would be included in our winery stop. We assumed this was it. It wasn't. We certainly had sticker shock when we received our wine tasting and lunch bill that was 200e. We knew that lunch was not included in this tour, but we were ushered into this winery and assumed it was our included snack and tasting. We didn't order any food, it was simply brought out to us. Our stops in Monteriggioni and San Gimignano included 30-45 minutes of free time at each place. That's not even enough time to walk through the squares/etc. Very rushed. When we asked to just stay at San Gimignano for more time, we were told that we had already paid for the winery stop on the way home. So... this winery stop was the one we paid for. It did include the wine tasting and light food. We purposely picked this tour and it wasn't cheap so that we could see the area and enjoy the towns. If we wanted a multiple winery tour, we would have booked that. We spent about 3 hours total within Monteriggioni, Siena, and San Gimignano and the rest of the day was driving fast and rushed or spent at wineries. Minimal discussion about what we were seeing and the historical significance as we went from place to place.
    This was my parents first and most likely only trip to Tuscany so we were disappointed at the rushed experience throughout the day.

  • Wonderful tour, our driver Placido was great and gave us so much info along the way. We loved Sienna and San Gimignano. The wine tasting was so much fun!
