Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.

From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time. (If the tour option without lunch is chosen, this part of the tour is not included but there will be more time spent in San Gimignano).

After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.

Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.

Alex was the perfect guide! He knows and loves the region, was kind and funny, and kept us all entertained with his knowledge and stories. (Emiliano our driver was amazing as well.) I now know why Tuscany is a place that everyone loves. Wear sturdy shoes and be ready to do some hiking and climbing, all of which give views that cannot be beat.

This was a great all day tour. Tuscany was beautiful and our guide, Olivia, was the best!!! We chose not to have the lunch and wine tasting because we don't drink wine, so the bus dropped the people off for the lunch and the rest of the group that didn't have the lunch were taken a few miles away to San Gimignano where we got our own lunch and the rest of the group met up with us after their lunch and wine tasting. Tuscany is beautiful!!!

This was such an amazing tour for my husband and I. The lunch and wine tasting in Tuscany was was an experience we'll never forget. The views and food were incredible and a must see!! The tour through Pisa was also one of my favorites. Alex, our tour guide is extremely knowledgeable, not just with the tour but literally could ask him any questions about your trip through Europe and he answered your questions and made awesome suggestions. You can tell he really enjoys what he does and we really appreciated that he took the time to get to know a little bit about everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Tuscany adventure with Angela and Emiliano. Stunning country, so much history and our guides, Angela and Analisa were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. A barrel of monkeys would be jealous of the fun we had. HIGHLY recommend this company and this tour.
