Day trip Rome to Siena and San Gimignano
After about 2 hours and 30 driving northwards, crossing and skirting the Tiber river valley, we will enter the Tuscan countryside and arrive in Siena for our first stop.
Siena the most important city of Tuscany after Florence, one of the country’s loveliest and best-preserved medieval towns of Italy.
Siena offers an extraordinary wealth of art, such as the Gothic cathedral – one of the few examples of Italian Gothic and the Piazza del Campo, where the Palio of Siena has taken place for more than 700 years.
This is a horse race that involves all the districts into which the city is divided. Visit the districts to learn about its history and traditions.
Immediately after lunch with your driver you will head north about 30 minutes after you will arrive in San Gimignano .
San Gimignano, a small walled village about halfway between Florence and Siena, is famous for its fascinating medieval architecture and towers that rise above of all the other buildings offering an impressive view of the city from the surrounding valley.
At the height of its glory, San Gimignano’s patrician families had built around 72 tower-houses as symbols of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano still retains its feudal atmosphere and appearance.
Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990, San Gimignano offers visitors the chance to step back in time while enjoying its local products including saffron.
