Itinerary

Naturally, the itinerary is fully customizable, in case (for example) you were interested to visit a winery, we can arrange a lunch-wine tasting there.

Meet your driver guide at the cruise facility in Livorno and depart to San Gimignano, on the way stop by scenic sites to admire the Tuscan panorama. Once arrived in San Gimignano your driver-guide provides information about the town and the main sites to see: the fortress, Piazza della Cisterna, the tower houses who gave to San Gimignano the nickname “Medieval Manhattan”.

Lunch can be arranged in Monteriggioni, another fortified town located on the way to Siena. Or in a wine farm where taste the renown Chianti red wines or the local white named Vernaccia di San Gimignano.

In the afternoon walk off the food and the wine by strolling around Siena. It is such a beautiful town with lovely squares like Piazza del Campo where takes place every year the Palio (traditional bareback horse race), imposing monuments like the Duomo and lovely alleys. All properly preserved.

Afterward, meet your driver-guide and return to Livorno.
