Description

You will spend the first part of the tour in nearby San Gimignano, which is also called the "city of towers" because of its many medieval towers. Because of its medieval alleys and buildings, the historic city centre has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990. Your experienced guide will give you tips and information on how to best enjoy your leisure time in the old town. Here you will find shops selling handmade products and palaces thousands of years old that adorn the townscape. San Gimignano is also the birthplace of Vernaccia, a white wine produced only in this region and particularly famous for its high quality. Vernaccia was even the first wine whose controlled origin was guaranteed by the Italian DOCG ("Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita") seal.

From here, your guide will take you to Monteriggioni, the ancient crown-shaped fortress that adorns Monte Ala. The city walls, dating back to the 12th century, are equipped with 14 towers, which are even described by Dante in his "Divine Comedy". After a short visit, relax at a winery with a lunch made from local ingredients such as salami or cheese. Of course, a tasting of Chianti wines is not to be missed.

The tour continues to the Val d'Orcia, another jewel of Tuscany and since 2004 UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then we continue on to Montalcino, a small town that overlooks from its hill the 1500 hectares of Brunello vineyards that have made this region so famous. At the end of the tour you will visit a winery and taste the world famous Brunello di Montalcino, which was also one of the first Italian DOCG wines and is one of the most expensive wines in the world. You will visit the wine cellar and can also taste other local products.
