Tuscany is a true mixture of beauty where art cities and villages alternate with marvellous and unique landscapes. Traveling from Florence to Siena, for example, you will spend the journey’s time pleasantly immersed in the view of the picturesque hills that from the South of the Tuscan city follow one another all the way to Siena. Breath-taking panoramas that will unfold in front of you engaging your senses with the charm of their colours and hues: the intense green of spring, when the grass is fresh and vibrating with life; the dazzling sunlight of bright summer afternoons; the warm red and yellow tones in early fall. Feeling relaxed while travelling on a full-comfort Gran Turismo coach, like children in front of a toy store, you will not be able to take your eyes off the window, raptured by the fascinating beauty of the world’s unique landscape of Chianti.
Between the hills, cottages, cypresses and Tuscan vineyards, in the blink of an eye you will reach Siena, one of the most fascinating cities in Tuscany. Here you will be free to walk along the enchanting streets of the medieval city and admire some of the masterpieces of its rich artistic heritage. Do not fail to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, a wonderful example of Romanesque-Gothic architecture that encloses, like a precious treasure chest, works by Michelangelo, Donatello, Pisano and Pinturicchio. In this afternoon day tour in Siena, you mustn’t forego a visit to Piazza del Campo, surrounded by wonderful buildings and the many cafés where tourists enjoy the fantastic view and the warm sun rays. The shell-shaped square is exactly where every year, on July 2nd and August 16th, the famous Palio di Siena takes place, a time-honoured horse race. The Torre del Mangia soars over the square to a height of 90 metres, from where, if you are not put off by the many steps, you will enjoy a fantastic view of the city. What is also interesting is that opportunities for shopping in Siena are not lacking, especially if you are greedy! You don’t intend to miss out on a bit of tasty panforte, a little panpepato or a nice box of ricciarelli, do you? Instead, during your daily trip to Siena, take a look at the many shops where these delicacies are made: the producers will be happy to share with you their story but, regrettably, they will be tight-lipped if you ask them about their secret ingredients!
But the surprises of the Palio city do not end here. Our tour will give you the chance to enjoy a romantic and unforgettable side of Siena. The end of your walk will be the perfect timing to admire Siena at sunset from a truly impressive viewpoint. You will be left speechless when taking in the incredible view of the buildings that stand against the evening’s flaming sky and feel truly ecstatic and mesmerized by the charm of the most romantic moment of the day.
But with your spirit nourished by so much beauty, your stomach might start claiming its share of satisfaction! For this reason, after the sunset in Siena, in the relaxing comfort of the coach you will be accompanied to a wine cellar in Chianti where you will delight your palate with an appetizing dinner with typical Tuscan products. Delicacies such as cold cuts, cheese and tasty snacks will be accompanied by an abundant selection of wine tasting. On the other hand, we are in Chianti, the realm of one of the most famous wines in the world! The owner himself will be able to explain everything you want to know about the excellent wines produced in the area and will also give you the chance to visit his Tuscan winery. And that is not all! You will also have the possibility to buy the Chianti wine you tasted, excellent Tuscan extra virgin olive oil and even balsamic vinegar. In short, along with the precious collection of memories of your beautiful day, you will return home with an equally precious booty of Tuscan delicacies. What more could you ask for?
Do not miss this tour that will add to your stay in Tuscany all the magic of an unforgettable day. The right ingredients are really all there: the beauty of the hills between Siena and Florence, the freedom to wander through the alleys and squares of Siena, the charm of Siena at sunset and all the flavour of a dinner in Chianti based on Tuscan products and excellent wine. There is only you missing to create the perfect alchemy! As for us, we will be ready to accompany you with all our enthusiasm to discover some of the most charming and picturesque corners of Tuscany. See you soon then!
