Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti with Wine Tasting


Our day starts in Chianti, the famous wine region of Tuscany, where we visit several typical Medieval hamlets and admire breathtaking views of the vineyards and olive groves. We then visit a wine estate (set either in a Medieval village, a Renaissance villa, a castle or a monastery) to tour the canteens, the olive press, and savor the best local wines. After lunch in a local trattoria with typical Tuscan dishes, we head to Siena, a perfectly preserved town with pre-Renaissance architecture. Here, we admire the Piazza del Campo - the setting of a famous horse race - and the cathedral, perhaps the most ornate in Tuscany. Our day ends in San Gimignano, a "Medieval Manhattan" town, where we savor the best gelato in Tuscany, admire gorgeous frescoes and, for the brave, climb one of the first skyscrapers.
