Check availability San Gimignano and Chianti Town & Country Tour.

A great day for those not interested in wine (though available as optional, see below), who would still like to visit the wonderful scenery of the Chianti region.

This Tuscan tour combines a scenic drive through the gorgeous countryside of Chianti with a visit to the town of towers; San Gimignano. During the morning we'll see how it's possible to cultivate land in complete harmony with nature. Vineyards olive orchards and Cyprus trees are blended into the surrounding woodland with the aesthetic taste for which Tuscany is famous. Traveling through Chianti is a feast for the eye and we'll make stops to contemplate the countryside and take a photo or two.

Then in the afternoon, we move on to San Gimignano, a medieval town in a truly wonderful state of preservation and perhaps the most charming and picturesque of all Tuscan hill towns. It's noted mainly for the 12th century towers that still dominate the skyline.

9.15 am - Departure from our hotel and our tour in Tuscany starts with a scenic drive through Chianti. I'll make stops in the most picturesque areas and give you all the time you need for photos and admiring the scenery.

Mid morning we arrive in the charming little town of Greve in Chianti. Here it's nice to relax with a drink and maybe do some people watching. You might also like to stroll around the arcaded sidewalks and browse the shops which specialize in inexpensive souvenirs. 

We continue our travels through even more splendid scenery and head towards San Gimingnano, the Manhattan of the 13th century. The town once boasted seventy two towers and today fourteen are left. We start our afternoon with a walk up the main street which leads to the town piazza, with its wonderfully preserved medieval stone buildings. The town has an atmosphere all of its own which you are sure to enjoy. You may like to visit the museum which takes you up the highest tower which has been restored to its original state. From here you'll have great view over the rooftops. The gelato in the piazza is worth tasting too! If you enjoy walking, you may like to hike around the perimeter of the old town walls. You will find yourself out of the crowds in peaceful surroundings, shaded by cypress trees, and looking over breathtaking scenery.

We complete our Tuscan tour and return to our hotel.

Please Note: by Italian law drivers are not allowed to do guiding of historical sites or museums. Therefore your visit to San Gimignano is done in free time. The tour is ideal for holiday snapshots but not professional photography. 

04.45pm - Return.
Tour duration: approx seven & a half hours
