Full day immersion into real Tuscany!
Whether you'll be arriving with one of our drivers, on your own or you'll be staying in Siena, the tour will kick off from the Basilica of San Domenico, a milestone of local architecture and faith. We will not miss the famous shell shaped square, Piazza del Campo, the stage where twice a year, the Palio horse race is performed. We will include the Duomo, considered one of the finest Gothic cathedrals in Italy with amazing works by Bernini and Michelangelo.
After lunch to be decided together (not included) we will continue onto San Gimignano, the drive is 45 minutes. Our walk there will start from San Giovanni gate, where the medieval city walls are still completely visible. We will proceed to the old core of the city, consisting of three small squares. The Duomo in San Gimignano is one of the few churches in Italy that are entirely decorated with frescoes.

Elisabetta gave an excellent tour. Very informative with a pleasant manner. We had 3 children with us and she made it interesting for them as well as the adults. She was also very good at sensing when we all needed a break for a gelato or cappuccino or something a little sweet for a pick me up! I would certainly choose Elisabetta as a guide when I return to the area.
