Get picked up at your hotel in central Rome and enjoy traveling through the hills of Chianti to visit the cities of San Gimignano and Siena.
San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is known as 'The City of the Hundred Towers and it still maintains its original features and timeless charm. Furthermore, the name 'San Gimignano' is linked to one of the most historical Tuscan wines: La Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
Arriving in San Gimignano, you'll explore its charming medieval streets and visit the old center of this wonderful city. Stop for wine tasting and local products in a beautiful wine cellar, sampling 10 different types of wine and oil, then visit the estate and learn about the processing of the grapes. Have lunch in the restaurant of the estate.
Then continue to Siena, a beautiful Medieval city in Italy. We will visit the heart of Siena and the central square known as 'Piazza del Campo,' known worldwide for the famous Palio. The horse race around the square in a Medieval style runs twice each summer. Siena is famous not only for its wine but also for its sweets: the 'Panpepato,' 'Panforte,' and 'Ricciarelli.' Stop for a good Italian coffee and taste a typical sweet of Siena.
