Start your trip with a pleasant excursion through the delightful hills of the Chianti countryside, offering an ever-changing scenery of vineyards and olive trees. Along the way, from the wide panoramic windows of our bus, admire the medieval hamlet of Monteriggioni, enclosed by its famous walls which remain standing to this day.
Upon arrival in Siena, you will enjoy a guided tour of the old town beginning from the famous Basilica of San Domenico (inside visit), a treasure chest of Renaissance art built in the 13th century, dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena of which preserves a relic.
Walk along the narrow medieval streets of Siena, admiring its splendid palaces until you reach the magnificent 12th century Cathedral. The guided visit continues with a tour in a Museum and an Oratory of a Contrada** where you can experience the authentic atmosphere of the town. The Contrade districts into which the town is divided are the real core of the local social life, where inhabitants of each district compete with each other as they devote themselves to preparations for the well-known Palio horse-race. The contrada is not simply a district: it is a small state having its own legacy of traditions, memories and emotions, including its own flag and anthem. The Museum of a contrada, as well as its Oratory, is therefore the heart of the district. This is an intimate and secret place - with exclusive access - containing historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art which are normally not disclosed to the public. In other words, a truly exclusive and valuable experience.
The guided tour of Siena ends in its most beautiful square, Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (town hall) is the focal point. Free time to continue the discovery of Siena and to have lunch (not included). After this break, we will head to San Gimignano, a tiny walled town located on a hill-top, intact through the centuries and famous for its numerous tall towers, frescoes and other valuable works of art.
Leave San Gimignano and be transported to the Chianti countryside. Take a short walk in the ancient vineyards where you can admire the scenic rolling hills, olive groves, and vineyards. Stop at a local winery and visit the suggestive barrique room where you will taste 4 excellent wines along with samplings of locally produced zero food mile products.
Before returning to Florence, head over to the charming village of Greve in Chianti where you can explore the main square which is filled with open galleries and local artisan shops. See the marvelous statue of the world famous navigator, Giovanni da Verrazzano.
