Highlights

The Cathedral and Leaning Tower of Pisa

FIRST STOP - PISA

A stop of 40 minutes to appreciate the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which is a freestanding bell tower located in the city of Pisa in Italy. Like its name suggest, it actually does lean to one side. The tower started to lean during construction because the foundation was built on soft ground that had difficulty supporting the weight.

SECOND STOP - SAN GIMIGNANO

San Gimignano is characterized by the many towers that fill up the horizon, many Italians themselves visit this city as a day-trip due to its beauty. It lies just 56 km south of Florence and thus it is the perfect starting point for this full day Chianti tour.

THIRD STOP - SIENA

Your driver will most likely advise you to go straight into the city center of Siena to see the Piazza del Campo. Due to its shell shape this square truly is one of a kind. From here you can also admire the Fonte Gaia, the largest fountain of the city made out of Carrara marble. You can also decide to climb to the top of the Torre del Mangia or, if you want to get really active, go for some shopping. It’s up to you!

FOURTH STOP - THE WINERY

The last stop of the day will take you to a winery: what better way to end the day with a glass of wine? Sit back, relax, and have some of the best flavors of Chianti. There you will learn all about Chianti’s rich wine history and also have a chance to take a walk into the Chianti wildlife and see wild boars, for some amazing pictures and memories.
