If you only have 1 day in Florence, this is a perfect tour for you. Spend the whole morning sightseeing
Florence, its museums, momuments and markets then come away from the crowds on an afternoon trip to some of the most beautiful local towns in Tuscany.
The tour departs from Florence at 2:00pm* and the first stop will be in Monteriggioni, a 13th century medieval town stage of the famous movie “The Gladiator”. In here you will be able to admire the wonderful views of the area and the Tuscan countryside from the ancient walls or explore the small shops selling the local handcraft.
The second stop will be at the historic city of Siena where you will be enchanted by the architectural styles of the Cathedral, the Mangia Bell Tower and the Palazzo Pubblico in Piazza del Campo, the venue of the famous Palio horse race held twice a year in July and August. In Siena you will have free time to wander around and discover the hidden beauties of this magical town.
The third stop will be in a local winery. You will be visiting the cellars with useful explanations given by an expert and you will discover the traditions of the wine making art followed by a wine tasting at the end. In the winery you will be able to buy the local products at a convenient cost either to bring back home or to the local farm later in the day to drink while enjoying the dinner with your new friends.
Finally we will reach an authentic Tuscan farm in the heart of the famous Chianti Classico region for dinner. Here begins the serious task of tasting locally produced Tuscan products, including pecorino cheese accompanied by various tasty jams, home made cured meats, mixed salad, seasoned vegables and fresh extra virgin olive oil on bread right before returning back to Florence.
Departure from the Tuscan farm is at 9:00pm. Estimated travel time is 45m*. We will arrive back to Florence at approx 9:45pm*
