Our ToursSIENA, San Gimignano & Monteriggioni
Siena, San Gimignano e Monteriggioni
A day trip with our company to discover the beauty of Siena and San Gimignano, it’s a must too!! With our car we drive throughout the historical center of Siena, and we can give you some general information about this enchanting town.
Once we will reach the Cathedral square you will have some time available to be fascinated by the wonderful marble facade and the interior decorated inlaid floor of the Duomo, and to walk down to the Piazza del Campo, where twice a year, the medieval rooted tradition of the famous horse race called Palio takes place.
For lunch we can suggest some good restaurants or better, if you are interested we can also stop in one of the wineries in the Chianti area just a few minutes away from Siena, to be welcomed on a wine estate with old wine cellar, having good food and a tasting of fantastic wine and olive oil produced on spot.
In the afternoon, like pilgrims following the path of the old Francigena route we will first stop in Monteriggioni, an ancient little fortress village protected by the original well conserved medieval walls. Thereafter the tour will reach San Gimignano, the best preserved town of the Middle Ages.
San Gimignano is also known as the famous “Manhattan of Tuscany” for its preserved thirteen towers visible from far, that form its unique skyline. To immerse into the ancient atmosphere and visit the lovely alleys and squares, in this lovely town you will be allowed some spare time.
