    Pass By: DriverinRome Transportation & Tours, Via Pian del Marmo 21, 00166 Rome Italy

    Venture north from Rome to Tuscany on a privately guided day trip, and spend the day in San Gimignano and Siena. As your driver chauffeurs you around the cities, learn about medieval Tuscany and see UNESCO-listed attractions, fine architecture and much more.

    Stop At: Duomo di Siena, Piazza del Duomo 8, 53100, Siena Italy

    Our first stop this morning will be Siena, without doubt, one of Italy's most enchanting towns. Its medieval centre is full of majestic Gothic buildings such as Palazzo Pubblico in Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square. Twice a year the Sienese celebrate their rich medieval heritage with a horse race called the Palio, which attracts visitors and spectators from around the world.
    Spend a few hours exploring the town and perhaps the Duomo. The cathedral's green, pink and white marble exterior is surpassed only by the exquisite black and white marble geometric patterns and the inlaid marble mosaic floor found inside. This was the first European city to ban traffic from its main square in 1966. Sit down and, while sipping a cup of coffee, enjoy the stunning view.

    Duration: 3 hours

Prior to its eventual decline into a sleepy backwater, the town prospered through its position along the main pilgrim route from Northern Europe to Rome. Today it is better known for its tourism, wine production and rich artwork. Piazza del Duomo is a good starting point from which to explore the historical buildings of the town. The Collegiate church, situated at the town's heart, is most famous for its frescoes of outstanding beauty, the greater part of which dating from the 14th century
