Tuscany is made up of some of the most beautiful areas in the country, from historic cities to vineyard-striped countryside. This full-day excursion has handpicked the very best in the region for the perfect introduction to Tuscany.
Firstly you will visit Pisa, a historic Tuscan city best-known for its Leaning Tower, but it has plenty more to offer. You will discover the UNESCO-listed Piazza dei Miracoli ('Square of Miracles') and learn how Galileo Galilei is linked to Pisa's monuments.
Next stop, just a short drive you will find Volterra, the Etruscan Borgo built 550 meters above sea level where you will stroll through the narrow streets between medieval building and learn about the alabaster carving technique.
For your third stop you will travel along the panoramic roads of the Tuscan region to reach the beautiful city of Siena. You will visit the Piazza del Campo (site of the world-famous Palio di Siena horse race) and Piazza del Duomo, where you'll see the city's magnificent cathedral and enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch accompanied by a glass of a top Chianti wine.
After lunch, you will reach the beautiful medieval town and UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Gimignano. In this authentic Tuscan town known also as the "Manhattan of Tuscany" because of its 14 towers, you will have some time to visit the shops, sights, and have the chance to taste a delicious World Champion Ice Cream.
