Description

Along the way that will lead us to Siena, we will stop at San Gimignano, a small and world-famous walled town located on a hilltop, which remained intact through the centuries, renowned for its tall towers, wonderful frescoes and many other valuable works of art: 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 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.

Description

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. 

It is an intimate and secret place containing historical documents and wonderful relics of the famous Palio, as well as magnificent works of art, which are normally not disclosed to the public. We proceed then to the spectacular Cathedral of the 12 the century, of which we can admire the magnificent architecture and the splendor of the polychrome marbles. In the afternoon, we will stop at the charming historical hamlet of Monteriggioni, an amazing small medieval village enclosed by its famous walls, which remained standing to this day, free time for an inside visit. Then crossing the gently Chianti rolling hills, we will arrive at 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. Please note that the order of the visits may change. When the Museum and the Oratory of the Contrada are not accessible, will be replaced with another site of particular historic and cultural interest.
