Siena - San Gimignano


From your hotel, your english speaking driver will take you to discover the town of Siena, one of the most beautiful medieval town of all Tuscany.
Here, after being dropped off in the very city centre, you can start to admire the outstanding "Piazza del Campo", with its particular "9 side shape" where twice a year the worldwide famous horse race "Palio di Siena" takes place. Once done with the square, it will be possible see the beautiful Duomo of the city with its beautiful "cosmatesque mosaic" floors, paintings and works done great artists such as Bernini and Michelangelo.
If you like, you can also take a walk to enjoy one of the most breathtaking view of the town and the hills surrounding Siena or just keep walking through the several different "contrada" (districts) of the city.
After Siena, it s time to take a little ride in the countryside till reaching Monteriggioni, a little walled up medieval town on top of the hill, where if you want, you can take a nice walk on the wall walkway and if you feel a little hungry, have one of the best meal ever!
Not time to relax yet because it is time to go seeing San Gimignano, the Ancient New York, with its 14 towers still standing and its cobblestoned alley.
If you feel, you can climb one of the tower in order to have an amazing view or if you don't scare yourself easily, you can take a look to one of the "Torture museum" the town has.
Anyway, before starting the drive back home, how can you say NO to a nice gelato?
