What to Expect
The tour begins in the center of Siena where you board an air-conditioned bus to San Gimignano. An expert guide shares details on the history of the UNESCO-recognized town, home to ancient city walls and striking towers, perched on a hill above the Val d’Elsa valley.  After the bus arrives, explore San Gimignano at your leisure. The medieval streets are home to pottery and crafts shops, striking architecture in Piazza del Duomo, and the historic pilgrimage trail of Via Francigena. Next, reunite with your guide and venture into the Chianti region, known for its award-winning wines and picturesque landscapes. During a winery tour, stroll through the vineyards and visit the bottling rooms and aging cellars of a Tuscan estate. The tour includes a lesson on the wine production process, a tasting of both white and red wines, and a range of classic Tuscan snacks including bruschetta, cheeses, and cured meats. Once the tasting is complete, your tour finishes with transportation back to Siena.
