your experience

Start with a minivan journey that takes you from Florence to the small, medieval walled town of San Gimignano. Built between the hills of Chianti and Val d'Orcia, the town is easily recognizable by its skyline of ancient towers that dominate its landscape of vineyards. It is these vineyards that produce the famous wine, Vernaccia. Your driver will drop you off at the door that lets you inside the village's 13th-century walls.

Enter and find yourself transported back in time as you walk to the lively historic center. You'll see narrow streets, charming squares, tower houses, palaces, and ancient churches. Stop by artisan shops, art galleries, and shops. If you want a souvenir, take home with you the famous "saffron." When you feel tired from walking, enter a wine bar and treat yourself to a glass of Vernaccia, the lovely and fragrant white wine. You can also use this time to check out the most famous ice cream shop in San Gimignano and sample the tastiest gelato in the world!

Less than an hour away, you will enjoy a guided tour of Siena, likely Italy's most stunning medieval city. Built on three hills, Siena has streets that are up and down, although its heart is the huge Piazza del Campo, where the Roman forum used to be. The square is famous worldwide for the Palio run, a horse race that takes place around the piazza twice every summer. Fun fact: you can see Siena and the Palio in the James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. On your stroll through the city, spot the folkloric multicolored flags, the oldest bank in the world, and gaze at the baptistery of the fourteenth century and the amazing Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral, one of the most beautiful in Italy.
