Famous for a wealth of art, history, striking landscapes and outstanding produce, Tuscany really does have the best of all worlds! With only a day to spare, see the best Tuscany has to offer on this full-day guided coach trip from Florence.
Meet your local guide before heading for the hills on a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside. Your first stop for the day is gothic Siena, famous for its medieval streets. Choose to join a guided tour through the city(free entry inside the Cathedral is included). Or, alternatively, you're free to marvel the sights of Siena at your own pace, enjoy a drink in an open air cafe and meet the locals.

Enjoy a stroll among Chianti vineyards, olive groves and wine cellars before indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch amongst the Sienese hills where Chianti wine is produced. Surrounded by grapes vines you'll have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers while feasting on local foods including cold meats, salads, pasta and bread. A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

After lunch you will visit San Gimignano where you can roam the maze of cobbled streets and small squares, grab a gelato and walk between San Gimignano's famous 14 towers. Your final stop is Pisa, where you can take an up-close inspection of The Leaning Tower, view the Cathedral, the Baptistery and monumental Cemetery in Pisa before venturing back to Florence where your full-day tour concludes.

This tour was the best value of our entire trip to Europe! Our tour guide Sandra was absolutely marvelous, fun, and very knowlegable about Tuscany. I cannot imagine there could ever be a better tour guide than Sandra as she escalated this tour from being GOOD to being GREAT!! The lunch at the Tuscan winery was delicious and we ordered some wine and olive oil to have shipped back home to Minnesota and it arrived at our house 1 week later so was very fast shipping. Thank you to Tuscany in One Day SightSeeing Tour for hosting such a fun tour - we loved it!

This is a great tour that covers a lot of ground in the Tuscan countryside from Florence: Siena, a lunch/wine tasting at a vineyard, San Gimignano and Pisa. Our guide for the day, Olivia, was excellent - well-informed and friendly, with a good sense of humor. Siena has a spectacular cathedral and the story of how Siena goes crazy over each summer's Palio horse races is very interesting. The lunch and wine were very good, in a pleasant countryside setting, and on the tour of the vineyard and organic farm, you can even pet the cows if you want. At San Gimignano, a charming walled village famous for its towers, I recommend climbing up the one public tower that's open - it's not too hard a climb and the views of the countryside are wonderful. Pisa isn't the greatest town to look at, and you're getting tired by the time you get there, but you get to see the leaning tower get advance tickets if you want to climb it and the sunset drive around the historic part of town afterward was a pleasant surprise. Much of Pisa was wiped out in WWII, which is why it's not nearly as charming as the rest of the itinerary. The bus we rode on looked brand new and was very comfortable It's a long day but worth it...take some snacks so you are ready for a late dinner by the time you get back approx 8:30 pm. And take advantage of any chance you have to use a bathroom - there's not always going to be one when you need it!
