A full day private tour to the beautiful Siena and San Gimignano: the “Manhattan” of the Middle Age

I will start giving you a historical presentation from the foundation of Siena as a Roman colony, up to its growth in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance as one of the most important cities in Europe.
We will visit the religious and political centers of Siena, the most important museums of the city, where I will tell you about artists who led the evolution of the Western art. We’ll then drive 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 enjoyable and fun.
