Siena, Montalcino and Val d’Orcia
Enjoy Tuscany

Siena, Montalcino and Val d’Orcia (10 hours) (from Florence)

Take in the delights of one of the most splendid areas of Tuscany, with a visit to medieval Siena, the wine town of Montalcino, and the wonderful landscapes of the Val d’Orcia.
You will be picked up at your hotel in Florence by your private vehicle and driver at 9am. Drive from here to Siena (about an hour). Siena’s main sights are concentrated in the maze of narrow streets around the fan-shaped Piazza del Campo, one of Europe’s greatest medieval squares and the venue for the twice-yearly Palio horse race. In the Campo, admire the magnificent Gothic town hall – the Palazzo Pubblico -, with its soaring bell tower, the Torre del Mangia. The Duomo is one of Italy’s greatest cathedrals. Its sumptuous faēade conceals a magnificent interior with massive striped black and white pillars, not to mention countless precious works of art. All around the city, in its hilly position, you will get many sudden glimpses of the rolling Tuscan hills beyond.
After your visit to Siena, set off again at about midday for the pretty village of Buonconvento, an ancient stopping place for pilgrims on the Via Francigena route. Enjoy a simple Tuscan lunch here at the trattoria Da Mario (25-30 euros per person).
From Buonconvento you will drive just a short distance to reach hilltop Montalcino with its 13-century defensive walls. It is well worth walking up to the fortress at the top of the town for some great views of the surrounding Tuscany countryside. The small town sits at the heart of vineyards that produce Brunello, one of Italy’s finest red wines. You will be able to sample three of these at the Fattoria dei Barbi (18 euros per person).
At 4pm it will be time to head towards the enchanting village of Bagno Vignoni with its natural spa waters. Enjoy a short stop here to see the pool in the centre of the village before setting off back to Florence. Arrival back at your hotel at about 7pm.
