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.

It’s a long day but worth it. We went in October and the weather was perfect. You get to see the beautiful countryside, charming villages and of course the leaning tower

Sara was the bestttt tour guide!!! She made our experience wonderful! She was very funny, friendly and knowledgeable. Riccardo drove us everywhere very carefully and safely. The entire trip was very smooth with ample time to checkout Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa at our own pace. It is the most convenient tour package to checkout all the important Tuscan cities in a day.

The countryside is amazing, as was our tour guide (Uhhgg forgot name but from Hungry) and our bus driver. The lunch was my best meal of the trip so far, hands down.

The tour was informative and well thought out. It gives you a overview of the beautiful region of Tuscany. Lunch was good although the wine could have flowed more freely.

I was traveling solo and booked this full day trip while I had limited time staying in Florence. I am so happy I did. There is no way I could have seen everything we saw that day! The tour guide was warm, friendly, and a great communicator. Loved everything. You won't regret booking this trip!

Olivia, our guide, and Antonio, our driver, were terrific! They were so kind and helpful. It was great that Olivia gave us so much info. The countryside was so beautiful. The cathedrals in Siena and (on my own) in Pisa were outstanding. I met several people also who were very nice ( important when traveling solo). Highly recommend!

We had a great time with my wife. The meet up point was super easy to find. Stefano(our tour guide) and Roberto (the bus chauffeur) were excellent! We did a few other trips during our stay in Florence but this one was the best! We didn't felt rushed at all with plenty of time to visit on every city we went. I highly recommend this tour and hopefully with the same team (Stefano & Roberto), They definitely deserve all the credits for this review.
