A step back to Middle Ages.


Our driver will drive to Siena, along the highway, surrounded by the Tuscan countryside. During the way, I will give you the most important artistic and historical notes about one of the most beautiful Medieval town in Italy. There I will accompany you as far as Piazza del Campo and point out the things you can do on your own(stroll around, visit of the Cathedral, and so on). Time for lunch. At a set time, I will meet you again to leave for San Gimignano, known for its towers. This small town developed and prospered between the 13th and the 14th century and the historical centre was enclosed in the second circle of the city walls. The plague of 1348 decimated two thirds of the population and, since then, San Gimignano knew a long period of decline in the shadow of the dominant Florence.
The centre of the town remained unchanged. Free walking.
A "gelato" break in one of the most famous "gelaterie" of Italy is a must"! Back to Florence.
