Escape from the city and explore the charms of San Gimignano and Siena. Wander around peaceful side streets, gasp at artistic masterpieces and stand in awe of unique histories in two towns with big personalities.
Seventy-two towers rising towards heaven – the Manhattan of the 13th century. San Gimignano is one of Italy’s best preserved medieval symbols and a UNESCO World Heritage. A must-visit, that can easily be combined with a visit to Colle Val d’Elsa and Volterra, to discover the past of the Etruscans in Tuscany.
A landmark city and World Heritage site, which comes to life in July and August during the famous Palio horserace. But the treasures and beauty preserved in this unique city are worth a trip all year round.
The perfection of the irregular Piazza del Campo dominated by the Torre del Mangia, the beautiful facade of the cathedral, the frescoes of the Palazzo Comunale by Simone Martini and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, and the magnificent Majesty by Duccio, preserved in the cathedral’s museum. A visit to Siena can easily be added onto one of our many itineraries.
Follow your passion for art, nature and haute cuisine. Private chauffeurs and a luxury fleet await you to discover the treasures of Tuscany. One-day itineraries, from the classics to real discoveries, will take you to Siena, San Gimignano, Colle Val d’Elsa, Monteriggioni, Montevarchi and Arezzo. Chianti and Maremma are close at hand, but even New York is closer than you might expect.
All itineraries are tailored to your preference and may be reserved at the time of booking or, once in Florence, by directly contacting our concierge.
Perfect balance between man and nature. Recognized as a World Heritage Site by Unesco, Val d’Orcia had long been celebrated by the painters of the Sienese school.
The route that crosses the province of Siena and Grosseto, displays the most characteristic landscapes of Tuscany and a land full of beauty and history. Hills dotted with cypress trees, the “source square” of the Vignoni Thermal Bath, the Renaissance dream of Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia in its Romanesque splendor.
On the culinary side we recommend pici pasta, a glass of Brunello and some Tuscan pecorino cheese DOP.
The twelve districts of Siena are at combat in a race that perfectly resembles the spirit of this extraordinary city.
The Palio race, with its horses and jockeys, dates back to the 13th century and is a manifestation of independence, pride and strength of glorious medieval times.
The two races take place on July 2nd in honor of the Madonna of Provenzano, and on August 16th on the day of the Assumption.
