Meet your guide in central Siena and hop aboard your coach toward San Gimignano. Learn about the UNESCO-listed town from your guide as you go, a destination complete with impressive towers, old city walls and set on a hill overlooking the Val d’Elsa valley.

After arriving, explore the medieval town at your own speed. Stroll along the ancient pilgrimage trail of Via Francigena, check out the architecture in Piazza del Duomo or browse the artisan pottery and crafts in the local shops.

Then reunite with your guide and journey to the Chianti region, celebrated for its world-class wine and stunning landscape. Take a winery tour, exploring the vineyards, bottling rooms and cellars of a Tuscan estate.

After learning about the production process, treat your palette to an array of reds and whites, noting the distinct characteristics of each. A selection of traditional Tuscan snacks, such as local cheeses, bruschetta or cured meats, complement your tastings.

After your time spent sightseeing and sampling fine wine, your tour concludes with transportation back to Siena.

Chianti and old towers
varvar2014

In this tour from Siena we were attracted by the possibility to combine the testing of Chianti wines with the visit to UNESCO medieval San Gimignano town. And we got what we were waiting for. Our guide was perfect. The Chianti products presentation was well done. As for the tour plan, we should make comments: - the tour plan at the Viator site starts in San Gimignano, then comes the Poggio ai Laghi winery and final walk in Castellina; - however, we got the inverse order and had only one hour in San Gimignano at the sunset time giving pleasant surrounding views, but hiding town interiors. Probably, the tour should be one hour longer and earlier with the announced order of sites. San Ginignano is worth at least an hour and a half. The list of tasting wines should be increased (we had only 3, including only 1 red Chianti). Anyway, we enjoyed the tour and recommend it to other lovers of Toscana history, nature and wines.

An enjoyable tour with a capable guide and terrific driver. Very good value for our money. Enough time to stretch our legs at each stop and do a short walk-about. Wine tour and tasting was great. Highly recommend this tour for anyone with a little time to spare.

It was a good tour of Chianti and San Gimignano but we felt it was a bit rushed. The tour only started in the afternoon and we felt it could have easily been a full day tour, as we ended up with only an hour to explore San Gimignano

Well balanced trip, with general background of Tuscan countryside and informed commentary. Wine tasting very professional and not pushy - only 2 people bought but all enjoyed. Liked walking round both walled towns without a guide, just soaking up the atmosphere
