Itinerary
Depart from central Florence and venture into the Tuscan countryside, a beautiful landscape marked by olive groves, green hills and cypress trees.

Arrive first in Siena, one of Tuscany’s crown jewels. Follow a local guide on a walking tour through the city, passing charming backstreets as well as Piazza del Campo, the celebrated main square that hosts the Palio horse races twice a year. Learn about Siena’s contrades, or districts, which each have individual legacies, traditions and anthems. Before departing, sample a surprise local specialty.

Continue to the hilltown of San Gimignano, known for its impressive towers. Relax with some time to roam the streets independently, popping into local shops or admiring the medieval architecture.  

Afterward, travel to a Chianti winery to soak up the sunset while eating dinner. Weather permitting, take a seat outdoors and feast on a 3-course meal of authentic Tuscan dishes with wine.

After a day of food, wine and sightseeing, you will be returned to central Florence.
