Siena and the Chianti area
The city of Siena is located in the centre of Tuscany and is famous in the whole world for its Duomo, the cathedral, and for Piazza del Campo where the Palio takes place: a horse race of medieval origins in which the city quarters of Siena, the famous contrade, challenge each other.
The city is universally recognized for its enormous historic, artistic and panoramic heritage as well as for the significant singularity of the style of its urban Medieval decor. Indeed, in 1995 its historic center was included into the world heritage sites by the UNESCO.
In the surroundings of Siena there is a variety of areas that are extremely important regarding their culture and their plantations, from the production of wine and olive oil to the preservation of ancient villages.
The Chianti area encloses various valleys and hills such as the Val d’Elsa, the Val d’Orcia or the Valle d’Arbia. Each of them hosts Medieval villages nestled between vineyards and olive groves offering unique and unmissable landscapes.
San Gimignano is located northeast of Siena and is distinguished by the Medieval towers, amongst them the Torre Grossa. Right inside the Duomo, the cathedral, one can find various frescoes by Ghirlandaio. Furthermore, in some areas of the city it is possible to admire the breathtaking panorama at 360°.
In the northeastern part of Siena one can find a woodland in which numerous villages stick out, such as Castellina in Chianti, Radda in Chianti or Gaiole in Chianti that have tied their centenary history to the wine-making production on a highest level. In this area you have a lot of wine-making companies where you can have a wine tasting, an excellent lunch, informational tours regarding the plantations, and food and beverage tours to taste all the delicious dishes offered in this district.
South of Siena the Val d’Orcia and the Val di Chiana are located, where one can distinguish Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. These villages and areas are packed with history and renowned all over the world for the wine-making production. In these areas not only the famous Brunello wine is produced, but also the Pecorino di Pienza cheese. Bovines of the Chianina type are breeded here, too.
Pisa and Lucca
These two cities, very close to each other, constitute a good occasion to organize a day trip with two legs.
In Pisa it is possible to visit Piazza dei Miracoli with the famous Leaning Tower and the Battistero and then move on to Lucca. This small city is distinguished by its ancient ramparts built between the XV/XVI century which enclose the city. Points of interest are the Duomo di San Martino, the Torre delle Ore, Via Guinigi or Via Fillungo surrounded by Medieval buildings. Furthermore, in Lucca each year the fair Lucca Comics & Games takes place, the most thrilling European appointment in the field of comic strips, animation, role playing and board games, video games and fantasy at all.
However, Tuscany does not only stand for Medieval cities, but also for seaside and relax thanks to its extense costal area. The esclusive and refined area of Versilia, Marina di Carrara, Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio surely deserves a stop-over. A unique occasion to enjoy the sandy beaches, live the worldliness, do some shopping and visit small cities such as Pietrasanta, where it is possible to walk around between the artworks of sculptors like Fernando Botero, Igor Mitoraj and other masters of the sculptural art of working marble or bronze.
Arezzo and Cortona
Beautiful cities of Etruscan origins and both distinguished by a dominant position over the surrounding territory, Cortona and Arezzo are located at a short distance from each other and therefore it is possible to visit both of them during a day trip.
