Beautiful Tuscany
 
Beautiful Tuscany - Depart 8:30 AM Arrive 5:30 PM
 
Two enchanting medieval hillside towns in Tuscany await you, along with boundless countryside scenery and traditional Tuscan cuisine.

On this historical excursion you will:

 

  • Your motor coach will take you on your scenic 1 hour journey to San Gimignano, recently the landmark for the highly successful movie Under the Tuscan Sun.
  • Explore this beautiful town independently, viewing the "Manhattan of Tuscany" skyline, bristling with a large number of towers dating back to the 11th and 13th centuries.
  • Enjoy a typical local meal in a nearby farmhouse before heading off to beautiful Volterra, one of the finest, and lesser known, hilltop towns tucked away in the heart of Tuscany. There will be a short guided tour here, and also some free time.
  • Idyllically set amidst an evocative landscape of soft rolling hills and lush woodland abruptly defined by barren, deep clay walled chasms, gullies and ravines, Volterra dominates and divides the Cecina and Era Valleys.
  • Visit the famous Piazza Dei Priori and get a close up of the medieval walls, gates and renaissance palaces.
  • Have free time be given in both towns, with the opportunity to taste some local wine and to shop.

NOTE: Comfortable shoes, water and a sun hat are recommended.
