Your final stop is in Siena, where you will have free time to walk along the narrow medieval streets, admiring the splendid palaces, the Cathedral, Libreria Piccolomini, and the famous shell-shaped Piazza del Campo.

Our guide (Sandro) was absolutely amazing and helpful which was a plus to this fabulous tour. He provided a lot of local info of the places. He planned every steps of our journey thoroughly to ensure none in the group gets lost. The wine tasting and lunch (vegetarian) was well catered for. Highly recommend the 30yr balsamic vinegar. Tour itinerary went exactly as described with ample free time to visit the cities. Coach itself was comfortable and easy to spot.

Great day with Sandro. He has an excellent sense of humour and made sure all needs are cared for and that we stuck to times. We thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and the visits to the medieval towns. We explored Siena on our own and with guidance of Sandro it was easy. Highly recommended!
