 Private San Gimignano & Siena Tour
Private Tour with a qualified english speaking driver.  Transfers included


Sunflower field Campo - Siena


Your driver will meet you at your port of call, Livorno (Leghorn) and will take you on a wonderful tour through Tuscany to the medieval village of San Gimignano and Siena - about 1hr 15mins drive.   Time will escape you while you are taking in the beautiful Tuscany countryside of rolling hills with vineyards and olive groves.   Your chauffeur will make sure that you are taken care of, answer all your questions that you may wish to ask and give you a commentary about the areas you are about to visit. 

• When you reach San Gimignano, you will find a small, walled medieval hill-top town, famous for its medieval architecture and especially its towers.  You will already have an idea of what to expect; the town is known for its wealth & Rich families competed in the erection of high towers, that served as lodging, protection, and also status symbols.


Of the town's 76 original towers, only about 15 remain. Stroll around the narrow cobbled streets, taking in the sights of the town: Sant'Agostino (Church of St. Augustine) with its Benozzo Gozzoli frescos, and the Collegiata, the main church, situated in Piazza del Duomo at the heart of the town.


Maybe have lunch here in one of the local canteens and enjoy a taste of the local white Vernaccia wine and some local cheese for an apetizer, beside having a little free time to do some shopping, you will surely be tempted by the local pottery and souvenirs.  Don't forget the gelato!    

• Next stop - Siena about a 50 minutes drive, just south of San Gimignano.    Here you will find the walls and gates surrounding a city center made up of narrow, winding streets and old buildings and palaces.


The city center is dominated by the Piazza del Campo, a large shell-shaped square where the civic life of Siena is focused, and where the "Palio delle Contrade", a biannual horse race, is held.  And don't miss the city's great cathedral, San Domenico church, dedicated to Santa Caterina, this cathedral is noted for its marble pavement and Gothic façade.
