During your stay, you will have the opportunity to join a full day tour visiting  Siena,  Monteriggioni, San  Gimignano, and Pisa  including  a wine lunch.   Be seduced by the eternal charm of the Tuscan art cities.  You will travel through the Tuscan countryside  and  reach Siena,  a  splendid medieval city, universally known for its artistic treasures that has been recognized by the UNESCO as a "heritage of the humanity". Once in Siena, you will visit the famous Piazza del Campo, with its particular "shell" shape.  You may use your free time to visit the splendid Cathedral, one of the highest artistic expressions of the Middle  Ages, and  admire the splendid buildings and suggestive churches along the narrow lively streets.

From Siena, we will take a panoramic road and admire the vineyards and olive groves in the heart of the Chianti territory on our way to the ancient fortified hamlet of  Monteriggioni, a small jewel built during the thirteenth century and embraced by its still intact walls. Take a walk within the restricted perimeter of the surrounding walls with eleven towers and discover a beautiful corner of Tuscany suspended in the Middle Ages.  A short distance away, in a pleasant country estate surrounded by aromatic plants, you will be served a lunch of typical Chianti products and a guided tasting a selection of fine Chianti and  Vernaccia  wines, managed with passion and expertise by the friendly owner of the farm.

After lunch, we leave the farm and at a short distance  away , we find San  Gimignano, another beautiful town, UNESCO world heritage, famous for the still intact medieval town planning with the numerous and beautiful towers hence the name "Manhattan of the Middle Ages". This town is also known for the "Vernaccia" wine, produced here. A stroll in the town  centre  means discovering true jewels of art, among which Piazza della  Cisterna, the Dome, Palazzo del  Podestà  and the Church of Sant' Agostino.

Another departure, this time to reach the famous town of Pisa, one of the most known worldwide, that is waiting for us with the sparkling sight of Piazza  dei  Miracoli, another UNESCO world heritage, where the peerless masterpieces in marble rise in the green lawn. The famous Leaning Tower, the magnificent Baptistery, the stunning Cathedral, and the Monumental Graveyard, maximum expressions of the Romanesque architecture of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries which house works of immense artistic value.
