Overview

Famous for a wealth of art, history, striking landscapes and outstanding produce, Tuscany really does have the best of all worlds! With only a day to spare, see the best Tuscany has to offer on this full-day guided coach trip from Florence.

Meet your local guide before heading for the hills on a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside. Your first stop for the day is gothic Siena, famous for its medieval streets. Choose to join a guided tour through the city(free entry inside the Cathedral is included). Or, alternatively, you're free to marvel the sights of Siena at your own pace, enjoy a drink in an open air cafe and meet the locals.

Enjoy a stroll among Chianti vineyards, olive groves and wine cellars before indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch amongst the Sienese hills where Chianti wine is produced. Surrounded by grapes vines you'll have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers while feasting on local foods including cold meats, salads, pasta and bread. A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

After lunch you will visit San Gimignano where you can roam the maze of cobbled streets and small squares, grab a gelato and walk between San Gimignano's famous 14 towers. Your final stop is Pisa, where you can take an up-close inspection of The Leaning Tower, view the Cathedral, the Baptistery and monumental Cemetery in Pisa before venturing back to Florence where your full-day tour concludes.

Want to skip the long lines at the Leaning Tower of Pisa?

We had an amazing tour thanks to our tour guide Elisa and our driver Nando! Starting the day with some snow on the way to Siena and ending it at the beautiful Pisa, that and everything in between was just perfect. The walking tour around Siena was amazing the cathedral is stunning, the lunch was Buonissimo and the views from the farm breathtaking, free time in San Gimignano was great, we had some Geltato and walked around, then ended the day in Pisa which was magical. Elisa went above and beyond with everything. She’s an amazing tour guide and an even better person. Thank you so much to her and Nando for a memorable tour!

Lavinia was excellent and gave local information delivered in an interesting style, Anna Lisa also gave local information not found in books. This trip was good value for money, lunch was great, enjoyable meeting other tourists and they accommodated dietary needs of the coelac. Would have liked a bit longer in the Siena Duomo
