Your Tuscany discovery begins with Pisa. Getting off the coach, we reach the Field of Miracles, a green grass field dominated by the dazzling white buildings of the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the famous Tower, exquisite examples of Pisan-Romanesque architecture: the Leaning Tower is almost 56 meters tall (about 183 ft). It leans at about 4 degrees, making it one of the most famous and iconic buildings all over the world. You are in one of the most world known places: revel in it, take creative photographs or wander off down the local streets.
From Pisa, we drive past hilltop hamlets scattered over some of the most beautiful and enchanting view of the countryside up to arrive at family run wine-farm where a traditional Tuscan lunch with wine tasting will be served.
After lunch, our journey continues to the discovery of a Tuscan medieval pearl, the stunning village of San Gimignano, Unesco world heritage, known for the ancient town planning still intact. It is often nicknamed the “Manhattan of the Middle Ages” because its famous tall, narrow towers create a skyline that looks a bit like a modern city. Here you have free time to explore the town center, the charming craftsmen’s shops along the cobbled stone streets and small squares.
Our last stop is Siena, which we will reach by driving through the lovely Chianti countryside. Siena is an amazing hilltop town, rich in works of art and traditions, famous monuments and picturesque views with a fascinating pedestrianized historical center and one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world. Upon arrival in Siena our local guide will take you on a guided walking tour along the small medieval streets and squares, passing the oldest bank in the world, and the Piazza del Campo - site of the famous 600-year-old Palio horse-race, to the spectacular Cathedral. You will also have free time to walk around the historic center as you like and conclude your memorable experience of Tuscany with the memory of a perfect day.
