Semi-independent Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and Chianti With Wine Tasting in a Typical Winery
Before your arrival in Siena, enjoy your road trip by bus with an onboard hostess that will provide you with all the historical information you need to enjoy 3 hours of free time in the historic centre. Visit the famous Basilica of San Domenico, the Museum and Oratory of a Contrada. The “Contrade” (districts into which the city is divided) are the real core of local social life, where inhabitants of each district compete with each other, as they devote themselves to the preparation of the famous Palio horse-race.
The Museum of a ”Contrada”, as well as its Oratory, is, therefore, the heart of the district. It is an intimate and secret place containing historical documents and beautiful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art which are typically not disclosed to the public.
In the afternoon we will reach San Gimignano, a small and world-famous walled town located on a hilltop, where you will enjoy some free time at disposal for its fascinating discovery.
In the evening, we will arrive at a small and typical Winery where we will visit the suggestive Barrique room and taste four fantastic wines, sampling also locally produced “zero food miles”. Finally, we will stop in the picturesque village of Monteriggioni, to end a memorable experience in the heart of Tuscany.
