Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your evening excursion will begins in central Florence. Join your guide aboard a comfortable coach and start your journey through the olive groves and green hills of the Tuscan countryside.

Arrive in Siena and enjoy time to explore independently, checking out the central Piazza del Campo or the Duomo, a stunning Gothic cathedral with interior frescoes and alternating stripes of white and black marble.

After watching the sunset, hop back in your coach and head to the region of Chianti, made famous by its ruby-red wine. There, visit one of the area’s prominent wine estates, set amidst a Tuscan farm. Take a guided tour of the cellars and learn about the production and aging process that gives the Chianti blends a world-class flavor.

Then settle into a table in the main farmhouse or, weather permitting, outdoors for a 4-course meal (sample menu can be found below). Pair your dinner with up to four glasses of the estate’s wine, learning about the characteristics of each from your guide as you sip.

After your evening of wining, dining, and sightseeing concludes, you are returned to central Florence in your coach.

Piazza del Campo
Piazza del Campo is a must-see in Siena. This (very) large, oval shaped “piazza” is a popular gathering place for locals to meet with family, friends, and classmates. You will probably notice Sienese locals resting on the wide slopes, which lead to Palazzo Comunale and Torre del Mangia. The vibrant square is also home to an annual palio horse race, an epic competition between the different neighborhoods of Siena!
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:  
Duomo di Siena
exploring Siena as you please, it is recommended you take some time to visit the heart of the city - the Siena Cathedral. As you walk up to the church, you will immediately notice the breathtaking facade decorated colorfully in pink, green, white, and black marble. Constructed in the 1200’s, this is a perfect example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture. Inside the Cathedral, take some time to admire the unique floors filled with marbled mosaics, depicting biblical stories on 56 different scenes. As you look up, you will see masterpieces throughout the church from Renaissance masters including Donatello, Pisano, Pinturicchio, and Michelangelo. Stroll through the grandiose atmosphere inside, and before exiting, don't forget to stop in the hidden gem of the Cathedral - the deep-colored frescoes of the Piccolomini Library!
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:  
Chianti Road
A truly unforgettable evening awaits you… You will be brought to a rustic wine estate in the heart of the Chianti wine region. The estate overlooks the rolling hills and lush land. You will be seated at a prepared table among the vineyards of the estate. Does it get much better than this? One of the local wine producers will serve the appetizers of local, seasonal products such as bruschette, salami, and fresh cheese. Then, indulge in a home cooked pasta dish, all made with local products from the region. And the best part - your dinner will include a tasting of various high-quality wines, including Chianti Classico. Enjoy this fantastic meal under the glowing, colorful sky of Tuscany as the sun falls into the horizon.

The vineyard is absolutely gorgeous. Our guide was extremely personable and informative. Our dinner and tasting was off the chain, Not only was the food delicious, but the tasting and information about the wines and oils was very impressive. I rarely will repeat what I have done, but this one I would definitely do again.

Siena is a short trip from Florence...unless of course you happen to get pulled over by the polizia like we did. Even so that was an added experience. Siena was great but could use more time to explore. There is so much to see and for my wife so much shopping..wine and dinner was great. Tenuta torciano was wonderful..although my wife wishes she said she was vegetarian because the caprese salad looks great

Enjoyable sunset tour of Siena

The tour itself was fun. The bus ride was enjoyable- the guide explained what to expect, and shared information about the countryside we traveled through. The free time in Siena was appreciated- to go see what we wanted to explore. Dinner at the winery was a lot of fun. The host (Chiara?) was very entertaining. The problem was that we had a very difficult time finding the meeting place behind the train station for the bus. It was not at the bus station as we expected and not easy for tourists unfamiliar with the area to find. We did not have the location on our google map so we really struggled. The staff on the phone tried to help.

Mixed feelings

, Sep 2019
We felt that the tour was disorganized. The meeting place was hard to reach on foot. The group was large and bilingual so it took a long time to explain everything. We would have liked a tour in Sienna. The dinner and wine tasting were excellent and fun. Made it worthwhile.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
Dear traveler, We are very sorry to know about your contrasted feelings. The meeting point is actually very central, located just five minutes away from the main train station and very easy to find on a map, the precise address being given on the voucher. About the group size: this is the busiest moment of the high touristic period and it might happen to have slightly bigger groups. Lastly: we do have several tours that include the guided visit of Siena and we are sorry if you could not check properly our official website, maybe next time ;) Best Regards Ciaoflorence staff
