Explore the town of San Gimignano, the wine territory of Chianti and the Montalcino fortress. Indulge in a Tuscan light lunch at a winery and enjoy a visit of a local wine cellar.
The first part of your day will be dedicated to the territory of Siena and starts with a visit of San Gimignano, the city of a hundred towers and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Your guide will give you all of the necessary information for enjoying your free time in the town’s historical centre, where you will find local artisan shops and millenarian palazzos. San Gimignano is also the birthplace of Vernaccia, a white wine produced exclusively here, famous for its high quality and for being the first Italian DOCG wine.
After visiting San Gimignano continue to the ancient crown-shaped fortress of Monteriggioni. The walls, which date back to the 12th Century, are endowed with 14 tours that Dante likened to the Giants of Inferno in his “Divine Comedy”.
After a brief visit relax at a Chianti winery for a lunch of salami, cheeses and other local products, accompanied by a tasting of Chianti wines.
After lunch your tour continues with a trip to Val d’Orcia, another jewel in the Tuscan territory and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Travel to Montalcino, home to 1500 hectares of Brunello vineyards that have made the area world-famous. The last stop of the day will be in a local wine cellar where you will taste the renowned Brunello of Montalcino, which finds its place among the first Italian DOCG wines.
