    Description

    After the departure from Florence and driving through the Chianti region, we get to Monteriggioni, a medieval town, located on a hill with its original wall-fence still intact. You will have some time at your disposal for a visit. Continuing, we arrive at Siena, where with the help of a local guide you will discover this fascinating city: the splendid buildings, including the Palazzo Comunale with the Tower del Mangia and Piazza del Campo where every year the famous Palio takes place (famous horse race), and the magnificent cathedral that you will visit inside.

    We head, then to San Gimignano, fascinating example of a medieval city and proclaimed by UNESCO a "World Heritage Site", where you will have the opportunity to do some sightseeing on your own, discovering the beautiful squares, palaces, churches and suggestive alleys. In the summer from April to October you will taste a homemade authentic Italian ice cream, considered one of the best Gelato in the world. Leaving San Gimignano, we will stop at a local farm for a taste of the good Chianti Wine and delicious nibbles of cold meats & cheeses.
