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.

Tour guide was v pleasant and good. Provided good information of the tourist spots. V well executed itinerary. V thoughtful to have included a "surprise" at the end of the trip, for the Pisa leg.

The only thing that could be better was the lunch provided.

Absolutely brilliant day. A wonderful way to see so much in one day, whilst staying in Florence. Our guide was lovely and very informative. Coach was luxurious and very comfortable. Nothing was rushed. The vineyard for lunch was spectacular. Food and wine brilliant and fantastic views of San Gimingnano. This trip is certainly value for money. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
