Enjoy the perfect medieval atmosphere of two must-see destinations in Tuscany: Siena, the city of the Palio horse race, and Monteriggioni, one of the most impressive walled towns in the Chianti region.
Once arrived in Siena, you will take part in a guided tour of the famous Cathedral, a jewel of Gothic architecture holding priceless masterpieces by Michelangelo, Donatello and Bernini. After a walk through the streets lined with Siena's most beautiful historic buildings, such as the Salimbeni Palace, Palazzo Tolomei and Palazzo Chigi-Saracini, you'll reach the monumental Piazza del Campo, the beating heart of the city and the extraordinary architectural setting in which the famous Palio of Siena takes place twice a year.
At the end of the visit, you will have some free time for lunch and shopping before leaving Siena to reach Monteriggioni, another pearl of medieval Tuscany. Spend the afternoon in one of the most interesting fortified villages in the world, incredibly still intact, and enjoy a small tasting of Chianti wine produced in the surrounding hills.
