What to expect

A trip to Florence is not complete without a visit to the two most iconic and world-renowned towns in Tuscany, Siena and San Gimignano.

You'll kick your day off by travelling from Florence to Siena with your English-speaking tour leader who will tell you all about the history and traditions of this town before passing you over to your local guide for a more in depth tour of this beautiful town. Renowned for the Palio, which dates to the Middle Ages, this town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you're sure to be in awe as you walk through the narrow streets of the old town. Enjoy a guided tour to the magnificent Duomo and reach Piazza del Campo, once a political hub, this spot is now a symbol of one of the most ancient and intriguing horse races in the world, full of symbols, traditions and intrigue.

On the way to San Gimignano, you will take in the idyllic Tuscan countryside with its gentle hills and vineyards that produce the world renowned Chianti wines. You'll hear all about the town's history and heritage along the way from your tour leader. Once you arrive, you'll wander through the narrow streets and admire the architecture of this unique UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its medieval tall buildings and city walls. You can enjoy a bite to eat and even sample its world-famous gelato before treating yourself to a small tasting and a glass of the famous local wine, so you can have a true taste of Tuscany!
