Departure Time

8:30 AM
Leave your Florence hotel and travel out of the city toward Siena, your first stop of the day. Arrive in the Tuscan city for a self-guided walking tour around the UNESCO-listed historic city center.

The historical center is peppered with architectural delights, many of which abound at Piazza del Campo, the large square and heart of the city. Hear about Sienna’s connection to the artworld, too, as you learn about acclaimed Siena-born artists such as Simone Martini, Ambrogio Lorenzetti, and Duccio di Buoninsegna.

Then, leave Siena for the medieval hilltop town of San Gimignano with its famous 13 towers. Make the most of some free time to admire the fine architecture of the Collegiata of Santa Maria Assunta, then perhaps team views of the Tuscan countryside with a glass of the local Vernaccia wine (own expense).

Meet back with your driver, to travel to your last visit of the day, the city of Pisa. Stroll amid the white marble monuments of Piazza dei Miracoli, and pose for a photo in front of the iconic Leaning Tower of Pisa. Later, at a prearranged time, you’ll return to Florence, and end your day trip with a hotel drop-off.

The private tour was excellent. We enjoyed a comfortable drive through Tuscany visiting Pisa, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and Siena. Our driver, Placido, was knowledgeable and informative and allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at each stop. We had an excellent pasta lunch and wine tasting at a wonderful winery. All in all, a great way to see some of the highlights of this beautiful region in a day.
