San Gimignano, Siena, Monteriggioni, Chianti: Day Trip with Wine Tasting & Lunch

Travel through the enchanting landscapes of Chianti and enjoy stunning Siena, marvellous Monteriggioni and the medieval Manhattan of San Gimignano. Along the way, you will visit a cozy winery and taste three fantastic wines.

Your memorable journey starts with the charming San Gimignano, a world famous walled town located on a hilltop, which remained intact through the centuries. This stunning town is renowned for its tall towers, wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art. Your expert guide will lead you to the historical center, where you will have around two hours of free time for a fascinating discovery.

A short distance from San Gimignano you will visit the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni. This amazing small medieval village is enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing to this day. Here, you will have free time to explore inside.

From Monteriggioni, crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, a short ride will take you to a cozy Winery, where you can relax and enjoy the fantastic world of Chianti. Enjoy tasting three fine wines and balsamic vinegar followed by a delicious Chianti style three course lunch with “zero food miles” products which ends with "cantucci e vin santo".

Later on, getting to Siena, you will meet your professional local guide who will lead you on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center. Starting from the famous Basilica of San Domenico, a jewel of Renaissance art built in the 13th century and dedicated to St. Catherine of Siena, of which preserves a relic.

Stroll along the narrow medieval streets of the city, flanked by splendid palaces and historic shops, passing through Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) is the focal point. See the spectacular Cathedral of the 12th century and admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles.
