SIENA & CHIANTI COUNTRYSIDE
One of our English speaking drivers will be waiting for you at your ship’s gangway at about 8 AM to begin our trip towards Siena and towards the beautiful countryside of the Chianti region. Siena is the embodiment of a medieval city. Throughout the centuries, the inhabitants preserved their city’s Gothic appearance, acquired between the 12th and 15th centuries. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape.
Siena is certainly the place in Italy where the traditions and the way of life inherited from a prestigious history have been kept alive. Next stop is San Gimignano, where you can admire the famous towers and also you can see the “Duomo” or Collegiate Church, the “Palazzo del Popolo”, the “Palazzo Nuovo del Podestà” (which is now the town hall), S. Agostino Church, the Museum of Holy Relics, and the infamous Museum of Torture, which displays early instruments of torture and reminds everyone that cruelty and violence existed even way back then. On a lighter note, there are numerous shops which sell local products including the “Vernaccia” wine.
Our driver can stop at a nice trattoria where you can enjoy the excellent wines and a traditional Italian local meal, pizza or salad. During the transfer San Gimignano-Siena we can stop in Monteriggioni for a visit, without a doubt one of the most classical and best known Italian walled town. The town was built by the Senesis in the years 1213-1219 on a hillock overlooking the Cassia Road. Its ideal position allowed controlling the Elsa and the Staggia Valleys in direction of Florence, the historic enemy of Siena. Here you’ll have the chance to taste a true Tuscany meal at the Castle of Monteriggioni.
After we’ve enjoyed this wonderful meal and wines we will have a nice sightseeing ride returning to the ship in the late afternoon.
