Description

Discover Tuscany on this private full-day trip from Florence. Go back in time and learn about the history of Tuscany as you visit ancient sites like the stronghold of San Gimignano, the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, the Fortezza Medicea of Volterra, and much more. After being picked up from downtown Florence, enjoy a scenic view of the countryside as you drive to San Gimignano. This beautiful stronghold is one of the most popular attractions in Tuscany. During the trip, marvel at San Gimignano's ancient towers, visit the historic Piazza Duomo, and soak in the atmosphere at Piazza della Cisterna. Then, proceed to Volterra and stroll through the cobbled streets to reach an array of historical sites. See remarkable discoveries such as Etruscan tombs built hundreds of years before Christ, elaborate Roman baths, and an incredible theater excavated from rocks. The stop at the set of The Twilight Saga: New Moon is also worth looking forward to. Afterwards, recharge by having lunch at a local restaurant, trattoria, or farm house. Next, admire the imposing structure of the Fortezza Medicea of Volterra before heading over to Palazzo dei Priori, which is the oldest civic building in Tuscany. After your exploration, your driver will drop you off at your hotel in Florence.
