Itinerary

Depart in full comfort aboard a state-of-the-art minivan with your dedicated English-speaking driver and tour escort, and reach Siena. Set in a beautiful landscape, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, it is one of the most enchanting medieval cities in Italy. Led by a specialized knowledgeable English-speaking guide, you will discover the town's most striking sights and admire the marvelous Piazza del Campo, where twice a year dashing horses compete in the heart-rendering Palio race.

Then travel on to San Gimignano, UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most splendid examples of an ancient walled town. Renowned as "the city of beautiful towers" or "Tuscany's Manhattan," it boasts an exceptional skyline, is one of the most well-preserved towns in the whole of Italy and has been used as a background in many movies. Stroll the maze of quaint cobblestone streets at your leisure, discover the tall towers - once homes - which characterize the town. Breathe in the authentic atmosphere and then set off across the vineyard-clad Chianti hills for a scrumptious Tuscan lunch and wine tasting in the charming premises of a boutique winery. Sample authentic Tuscan flavor and enjoy the privilege of a private visit to the estate's wine cellar. After lunch, there's a fascinating visit to nearby Impruneta, to learn all about its extraordinary terracotta production, and then travel on to Pisa.

In Pisa, discover the airy majesty of Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracles Square), which consists in the Leaning Tower, Romanesque Duomo and Baptistery. The ever-fascinating Leaning Tower, bell tower of the Cathedral, has been proposed as one of the seven wonders of the modern world and is truly a sight to see (kindly note tickets to climb the tower are not included due to the constant extremely long queues; clients wishing to may, if queues are short, buy tickets directly on site). At the end of the Pisa visit, travel back to Florence in full comfort, as your eyes and heart rest upon the day's marvelous enchanted sights.

Your Tuscany Grand Tour will be more than a tour; it is a memorable lifetime cultural experience.
