The run-down of the Best of Tuscany Tour:
The Best of Tuscany is a 9-hour tour to San Gimignano, Siena and Monteriggioni, three remarkable medieval towns in the Chianti region. To facilitate your enjoyment, our guide explains the history and highlights of each fascinating hill town in private air-conditioned transport on the way while you enjoy the very beautiful and aptly famous Tuscan landscape. The guide also stops for photo opportunities at particularly scenic locations.
Upon arrival at each town, you have free time to explore. Your guide will be able to suggest the best places to see artisan's studios, local producers of typical Tuscan products, nice places to 'people watch' while enjoying a cold drink, and where to explore the town's highlights. You are given free time in San Gimignano, Siena and Monteriggioni where you can choose to just soak up the atmosphere or try one of the other activities outlined above.
The tour also includes a gourmet light Tuscan lunch of quality products produced in Tuscany, including extra virgin olive oil. You also visit a classic Tuscan estate with an introduction to Tuscan wine and a wine tasting.
This tour is designed to give maximum enjoyment for a day's outing to Tuscany's most famous hilltop towns.
The Best of Tuscany Tour Shopping Suggestions - what to buy in Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni: These towns are great for quality small gifts to take home. Beautiful, locally produced traditional design ceramics are available in all towns. San Gimignano is an 'art town' with a large variety of artistan studios to browse. Salami, cheeses, traditional cakes and biscuits like Siena's famous Panforte are great to buy. Ask your guide to point out great shops with high quality produce. The estate you visit has a great selection of wines and olive oils as well.
