DAY TOUR FROM FLORENCE TO SIENA & SAN GIMIGNANO
A full day private tour to the beautiful Siena and San Gimignano: the “Manhattan” of the Middle Age
I’ll show you the most important city in Tuscany after Florence: Siena, located in the central part of Tuscany Region, in the middle of a vast hilly landscape, its historic center has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site; and then to San Gimignano: a small walled medieval hilltop town, known as the Town of Fine Towers, it is famous for its medieval architecture, and with its encircling walls forms “an unforgettable skyline”.
I am not going to give you a lecture – unless you want to – I will be informative but I won’t overdo with too many dates and names, I will make your visit fun with anecdotes and legends, you will have time to enjoy a typical local meal, a coffee or an ice cream: I know you are here on holiday and your holiday is meant to be relaxing and fun.
