Siena and San Gimignano: Small-Group Tour with Lunch from Florence
From US$183.18
Get a taste of the Tuscan countryside on this full-day tour from Florence. Take a guided walking tour of Siena, home to the famous Palio horse race, and explore the medieval hill town of San Gimignano. Midday, visit a family-owned winery for a lunch of seasonal Tuscan delicacies paired with local wines. Tour size is limited to a maximum of 16 people.
What to Expect
Meet your group at the Florence main train station for a day filled with art, history, sightseeing, food, and wine.

Hop aboard your minibus and after approximately a 1-hour drive through the Tuscan countryside, enter the heart of Siena, and start the visit with your guide. Take off through the town's narrow streets and hear stories about Siena as you go. 

Skip the line to see the interior of the magnificent Cathedral, and pass through the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, where the Palio horse race is held twice a year. After the walking tour, you'll have some free time to enjoy Siena on your own.

On the way to San Gimignano, admire the unique Tuscan landscape, driving through marvelous scenery surrounded by olive trees, vines and old stone buildings.

Next stop is at a family owned wine estate. Here, you will have time to relax and enjoy a proper Tuscan lunch that gives you a taste of country hospitality. After lunch, with an easy drive, you will reach San Gimignano where you will finish your day. Famous for its splendid skyline of tall Medieval towers, here you will have free time to explore on your own, the main street full of typical shops, have a look at the "Collegiata" (main church), or enjoy a gelato. You will be back in Florence in the late afternoon.

Sample Menu:
Assorted cold cuts, cured ham, salami, cheeses, bruschetta, pasta, or soup, salad, dessert and coffee, accompanied by the winery's own excellent products such us, different wines, and olive oil and Vin Santo (sweet dessert wine).
