    Itinerary

    Along the way that will lead us to Siena, we will stop at San Gimignano. Here we will be led until the heart of the historical center, where to have free time at disposal for its fascinating discovery.

    Upon arrival in Siena, after free time for lunch (not included), we meet the local guide, who takes us on a comprehensive guided tour of the historic center, starting from its most beautiful square, Piazza del Campo, of which the Palazzo Pubblico (Town Hall) is the focal point and a pleasant walk through the narrow medieval streets of the city, flanked by splendid palaces and historic shops, until we reach the Museum and Oratory of a Palio's Contrada (*) (exclusive opening), where we can experience the atmosphere of the authentic and most intimate soul of the town. The "Contrade" (districts into which the city is divided) are the real core of local social life, where inhabitants of each district compete with each other, as they devote themselves to the preparation of the famous Palio horse-race. The Museum of a "Contrada", as well as its Oratory, is therefore the heart of the district. We proceed then to the spectacular Cathedral of the 12th century.

    In the afternoon, we will stop at the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni.

    Then crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, we will arrive to a cozy Winery, where taste four fantastic wines and sampling balsamic vinegar and "zero food miles" products , to end this memorable experience in the heart of Tuscany with delicious Tuscan flavors.

    (*) When the Museum and the Oratory of the Contrada are not accessible, will be replaced with another site of particular historic and cultural interest
