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.

Unforgettable experience with a very professional and valuable person - Elizabeth. Thanks to Elizabetta we have forgotten about our daughters (7 years old) stomach problems, a high temperature and very long walks. She presented Siena and Gimignano with such a passion and involvement that we almost felt like part of it. Should we decide to visit Tuscany again - always with Elizabetta. Thank you very much Daniela
