The most classic tour in Tuscany.
The tour begins with a visit to the medieval town, placed along the “Francigena’s
way”, of San Gimignano, famous for its 13th century towers built
by the merchants to symbolize their wealth and prosperity.
Next, a stop in Monteriggioni, a lovely and picturesque village.
There you can decide to have your lunch or just take a sightseeing walk
on the medieval wall that surrounds the town.

on to Siena which was founded by the Romans in 180 b.c. on the site of
a former Etruscan settlement.

of narrow streets it fascinates visitors from all over the world.
The striped black and white marble “Duomo” dominates Siena’s
skyline and “The Piazza del Campo”, a shell shaped 12 century
square, is the focus of the twice-yearly drama of Siena’s renowned
horse race the “Palio”
Cafes, restaurants and fine medieval palaces are found on almost
every street or piazza of the town.
