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 was a lot of fun and it helps you really appreciate Tuscany. My wife and I spent 15 days in Italy, traveling from Venice, Milan, Florence, Cinque Terra, Ravenna, Rome, Naples, Pompeii. We went on probably 10 different tours, and this was our 2nd favorite behind the cooking class. You really can't lose with WalkaboutFlorence. You go to several locations, including San Gimignano, which is an awesome medieval Tuscan village. I had this strange feeling like I was there before in some distant memory, and then I realized I was, but it was in the video game Assassin's Creed. This particular tour is straight up Assassin's Creed, and if you ever played the historical video game, you'll find this tour extremely fun. The same goes for Sienna as well - another Assassin's Creed setting. Beyond making mental connections to a video game, there's a great deal of culture and history associated with this tour which is very fun. As a history teacher, I absorbed a lot. The tour guides are knowledgeable and do a great job. Pisa was very very cool. Make sure you do the option where you climb to the top of the leaning tower. It's not a tough climb at all, and not to sound simplistic, but it is seriously leaning! Haha. You'll appreciate that when you're at the top and walking around pretty gingerly. It's a great experience. This tour, along with the cooking class tour, made Tuscany our absolute favorite thing about Italy. Even better than Rome. Do the tour :

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Elisa, was wonderful. She managed to tell us quite a bit about all of the areas visited. The winery and lunch were unbelievably good. The little side trip to Sienna was great and the stop in Pisa was fun. We paid the extra to climb the tower which we felt was worth it one of the must-do things in Italy after taking all the cheesy pictures. HIGHLY recommend this tour company. We did another full day tour in Rome with a different company and it didn't come close to comparing to Walkabout Tours.
