The first part of the day will be dedicated to the territory of Siena and starts with a visit to San Gimignano, the city of a hundred towers which is also a UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage site.

The guide will give you all of the necessary information for enjoying your free time in the town’s historical centre, where you will find local artisan shops and millenarian palazzos. San Gimignano is also the birthplace of Vernaccia, a white wine produced exclusively here, famous for its high quality and also for being the first Italian DOCG wine. From here you will go to Monteriggioni, the ancient crown-shaped fortress that adorned the head of Italy on the hold 100 lire currency. The same walls, which date back to the 12th Century, are endowed with 14 tours that Dante likened to the Giants of Inferno in his Divine Comedy.

After a brief visit, you will relax at a Chianti winery for an optional typical lunch including salami, cheeses and other local products, accompanied by a tasting of Chianti wines. Your day continues with a trip to Val d’Orcia, another jewel in the Tuscan territory and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004. You will then reach Montalcino, which from its hill dominates the 1500 hectares of Brunello vineyards that have contributed to making the area world-famous. The last stop will be in a local wine cellar where you will taste the renowned Brunello of Montalcino, which finds its place among the first Italian DOCG wines.
