1. From Florence: Day Trip Pisa, Siena & San Gimignano w/Lunch
Experience the wonders of Tuscany on one memorable day. Leave Florence for a 12-hour excursion and see the beautiful landscapes, architecture, and artworks of the region. Treat yourself to some local cuisine, and choose a guided tour in your language to learn even more about the historic area. Begin with the visit to Piazza del Campo, where the Palio di Siena horse race is run, and Piazza del Duomo, where you will see the exterior of the magnificent cathedral. After some free time in Siena, have lunch in a typical Tuscan winery, then enjoy some local wine. Visit San Gimignano, a UNESCO medieval town, world-known for its Vernaccia di San Gimignano. The system of towers of San Gimignano tells the glories of the powerful families. Between saffron fields and typical indigenous vineyards, the city knows how to offer postcard views. Continue to Pisa and visit its stunning Piazza dei Miracoli. Admire the Baptistery, the cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, and, of course, the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.
