Tours in Tuscany

Pisa boasts one of the wonders of the world, the Leaning Tower, overlooking Piazza dei Miracoli (Miracle Square) a unique complex that is, in itself, worth the journey. And yet this lively town has much more to offer. Pisa has been the Queen of the Mediterranean Sea, the cradle of Tuscan architecture, the hometown of scientific giants Galileo Galilei and Leonardo Fibonacci and a storied and excellent university centre. The rich past of the town is reflected in its variegated historical sights. This half-day tour allows you to grasp the essence of the town.

Wine, art and history—as well as a landscape that inspires poets and painters—is the essence of this itinerary. Discovering the heart of Chianti and Valdelsa, the tour will take you through high hills and small valleys where vineyards, olive trees and woods alternate harmoniously. This region, which was already appreciated by the ancient Etruscans and the medieval citizens of Florence and Siena, is currently the centre of the local wine production. It is here that both Chianti Classico and Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Michelangelo‘s favourite wine, come from. Our tour begins and ends in Florence. Read more…

This full-day tour aims at discovering one of the pearls of medieval Tuscany. The marvelously well-preserved Siena was once a rich and powerful republic that rivaled Florence for many centuries. It is a city of light and shadows, set in black and white, like its coat of arms, sweet and spicy like the taste of the famous local pastries: Panforte and Panpepato (literally: peppery bread). The Cathedral of Siena has the most amazing interior of all the Tuscan churches and its shell-shaped main square is the scene for the exciting historical Palio horse race. Siena’s narrow and steep medieval streets grant us impressive views of its churches and palaces.
