Description

The first part of our day will be dedicated to the territory of Siena and starts with a visit to San Gimignano, the city of a hundred towers and it is also a UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage site. Our tour escort will give you all of the necessary information for enjoying your free time in the town’s historical center, where you will find local artisan shops and millenarian palazzos. 

San Gimignano is also the birthplace of Vernaccia, a white wine produced exclusively here, famous for its high quality and also for being the first Italian DOCG wine. From here we will go to Monteriggioni, the ancient crown-shaped fortress that adorned the head of Italy on the hold 100 lire currency. The same walls, which date back to the 12th Century, are endowed with 14 tours that Dante likened to the Giants of Inferno on his Divine Comedy. 

After a brief visit, we will relax at a Chianti winery for a lunch of salami, cheeses, and other local products, accompanied by a tasting of Chianti wines. Our day continues with a trip to Val d’Orcia, another jewel in the Tuscan territory and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004. 

We will travel to Montalcino, which from its hill dominates the 1500 hectares of Brunello vineyards that have contributed to making the area world-famous. 

Our last stop will be in a local wine cellar where we will taste the renowned Brunello of Montalcino, which finds its place among the first Italian DOCG wines. We will visit the wine cellar and also taste typical local products.
