Siena & San Gimignano
Siena & San Gimignano can easily be visited in combination as a single full day tour from Florence.
Siena is one of Tuscany's true gems. It boasts an amazingly well preserved Medieval city center. The Piazza del Campo, the Duomo di Siena and Palazzo Pubblico are only a few of the many landmarks you will encounter in this UNESCO world heritage site. Siena is also famous for its traditional horse race the Palio, held twice a year (July 2nd and August 16th) in which 10 neighborhoods (out of a total of 17) compete against each other in a treacherous and dramatic 3 lap race around the Piazza del Campo in front of a crowd of 30.000 spectators.
As an authorized limo service, we have permission to drive you directly to the Piazza del Campo, at the heart of the city in an area that is normally off limits for cars.
San Gimignano is one of the best preserved examples of 12-13th Century urban architecture. Often described as a "Medieval version of Manhattan", San Gimignano was a city in which the most powerful families owned the tallest towers overlooking the Tuscan landscape. San Gimignano is mentioned as one of the towns scattered along the Via Francigena, a route connecting France to Rome, traveled during the Middle Ages by Christian monks during their pilgrimage to Rome.
The Siena & San Gimignano Tour calls for about 3hrs of total travel time. There is also the option of arranging a stop at a winery (reservations are usually required so please let us know in advance).
