Venture north from Rome to Tuscany on a privately guided day trip, and spend the day in San Gimignano and Siena. As your driver chauffeurs you around the cities, learn about medieval Tuscany and see UNESCO-listed attractions, fine architecture and much more.

Duomo di Siena

Our first stop this morning will be Siena, without doubt, one of Italy's most enchanting towns. Its medieval centre is full of majestic Gothic buildings such as Palazzo Pubblico in Piazza del Campo, Siena's main square. Twice a year the Sienese celebrate their rich medieval heritage with a horse race called the Palio, which attracts visitors and spectators from around the world. Spend a few hours exploring the town and perhaps the Duomo. The cathedral's green, pink and white marble exterior is surpassed only by the exquisite black and white marble geometric patterns and the inlaid marble mosaic floor found inside. This was the first European city to ban traffic from its main square in 1966. Sit down and, while sipping a cup of coffee, enjoy the stunning view.

Admission Not Included

San Gimignano 1300

You will then proceed to San Gimignano, Italy s Medieval Manhattan or the city of the belle torri (beautiful towers) rising imperiously above the vineyards of its own wine-growing area. Built as status symbols and defensive outposts, the towers played a significant role in the internecine feuds that eventually led to the town's downfall. Prior to its eventual decline into a sleepy backwater, the town prospered through its position along the main pilgrim route from Northern Europe to Rome. Today it is better known for its tourism, wine production and rich artwork. Piazza del Duomo is a good starting point from which to explore the historical buildings of the town. The Collegiate church, situated at the town's heart, is most famous for its frescoes of outstanding beauty, the greater part of which dating from the 14th century

Davide was our driver today. He was fantastico. Very full of historical and current local knowledge which he shared in a very entertaining way. Davide picked up our family of 8 this morning and made our day the most wonderful day we have experienced since arriving in Rome. His suggestions for photos, shopping, snacks and lunch in Tuscany were all great. Thank you so much. We highly recommend Davide and DriverinRome.

Our driver Davide was absolutely wonderful! We had to switch hotels last minute and he was very accommodating in changing the pickup location at the last minute. He chatted with us as we drove through Tuscany and made sure to note any points of interest. We talked about Italian culture, language, and history. He was great! The vehicle was a Mercedes sedan as advertised and was very comfortable. We were able to leave town a bit early to beat traffic and crowds at the Duomo in Siena. If you only have minimal time to spend in Tuscany, you cannot miss the Duomo in Siena. It is unlike any cathedral we have every visited with an unbelievable amount of unique art! Make sure you peek inside the Piccolomini library for a view of some original illuminated manuscripts. Davide also made arrangements for us to spend the afternoon at a Tuscan winery for a tasting last minute as well! This was a wonderful day drip still getting us back to town for leisurely evening in Rome. Again, we cannot recommend Davide enough! He really went above and beyond and made our day wonderful!
