Siena is one of most famous tourist attraction in Tuscany and probably Italy's loveliest medieval city. Best known for its cuisine, art, museums and medieval cityscape, Siena is also the home of the Palio Horse Race that runs around Piazza del Campo twice a year in Summer. The village of San Gimignano is a Medieval town and best known (other than for the production of a renowned quality of white wine called Vernaccia) for being the "Manhattan of Middle Age" thanks to its still standing medieval towers that compose a unique skyline.

This tour is designed to serve you with an opportunity of discovering the breathtaking views and heart-touching places in the Tuscan countryside. 

Upon arriving at San Gimignano, admire the distinctive skyline boasting 13 medieval towers. Embraced by the warm glow of mid-morning sunlight, the town's ancient towers and crenellated walls cast long shadows across the surrounding landscape. Highlights to not to be missed, Piazza della Cisterna, named after the well found at its center and encircled by unspoiled 13th and 14th century palaces; and the Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral).
