A journey into the past to discover one of the most perfectly preserved medieval cities in Europe.
Set in a sun-drenched valley and surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves and vineyards Siena is an amazing combination of medieval palaces, towers and cathedrals. Walking through winding alleyways you will arrive to the famous shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, where the famous “Palio” horse race is held twice a year. Climbing steep steps and hidden paths you will then admire the gothic architecture and treasures of art of this splendid city where everything seems to have remained as in the medieval times.
Your tour will continue to San Gimignano, a small and charming medieval town built on a hill overlooking a breathtaking valley. The city is famous for its towers built by rich rival families in search of prestige and status. The defensive walls, the narrow streets and little traffic create a magical timeless atmosphere. On the return journey, you will see the old medieval village of Monteriggioni, enclosed by its famous walls which are still intact.
