Siena & Tuscan Contrisyde
Our first encounter will take place when you arrive at the port.
We will be near the ship waiting to meet you at 8:00am.
We are then off in search of the "real" Tuscany among the beautiful rolling hills so pure and untreated. Small simple towns filled with stories of the past. You will see how oil and wine are made using traditional methods used for hundreds of years and are going to have the opportunity to taste the products. You may also be given useful tricks and techniques on how to make such natural and wholesome creations.
Once in San Gimigniano "The Medieval Pearl", we will visit the walls and towers that surround the town. It almost feels like "a secluded piece of paradise". The most important square gives us an amazing view of the valley. Obviously, you will have the opportunity to do some shopping or simply to take a relaxing stroll along the main streets of the town.
Lunch at Monteriggione
Once again, on Via Cassia, the road that crosses the valley, we will stop at Monteriggione, an antique medieval village from the 13th century. Here you will be able to lunch upon typical local dishes accompanied by an exquisite glass of Tuscan wine.
We shall arrive in Siena in the early afternoon and start by visiting the most significant 12th century church…The Duomo. On to the famous Piazza del Campo, which is the focus of Siena's civic life. Here the Corso Del Palio is held, the famous horse races of medieval origin that are held twice annually.
Piazza Del Campo is dominated by the Palazzo Pubblico, which is considered the symbol of civic liberty for the Sienese. It is the highest tower, topped by the celebrated Torre Del Mangia. Because Sienna is situated among several winding hills and valleys, most of the sights must be visited on foot but walking among the narrow roads of this village seems to transport you to another time, filled with a beauty that is surreal and almost magical!
