This Tuscany scenic tour gives you the opportunity to discover some breathtaking panoramas and have your heart touched by the amazing Tuscan countryside from the comfort of a luxury car or minivan complete with air-conditioning, mini-bar, large panoramic windows and comfortable seats.

The adventure begins with a relaxing trip through the splendid Tuscan hills covered with vineyards, olive groves and golden wheat. Admire the distinctive skyline with 14 medieval towers at San Gimignano (declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO).
Visit the ‘Piazza della Cisterna’ encircled by uncontaminated buildings from the 13th and 14th centuries, or the ‘Piazza del Duomo’ the Romanesque church from the 12th century. The ‘Via San Giovanni’ and ‘Via San Matteo’ offer great shops and many opportunities to taste the renowned white wine ‘Vernaccia’ from San Gimignano.

We have the option of a short stop to visit the incredible medieval town of Monteriggioni with its 13 towers, mentioned by Dante in ‘The Divine Comedy’.

This Tuscan driving tour concludes in the city of Siena where you can view the famous Piazza del Campo- the place where, on July 2nd and August 16th every year, the Palio is run- the famous horse race in which the spirit of competition of the 17 Contrade dividing the old town is brought out. Stroll along the Via di Città, and Via Banchi di Sopra, with their historical buildings and great shops. The Duomo is one of the most evocative and original creations of medieval Italian art. In addition to the splendid façade, skillfully decorated with sculptures, note the original Romanesque bell tower with bands of black and white marble. Inside, besides the beautiful marble floor with inlays, there are numerous art treasures created by artists like Nicola Pisano, Donatello, Michelangelo, Duccio di Buoninsegna.
