Siena,Monteriggioni & San Gimignano Tour

Siena Tour

Siena and the Palio Along with its distinctive striped cathedral, Siena is famous for the Palio, a summer celebration that has been a tradition here since the Middle Ages and is one of the most exciting events you can witness anywhere! Held twice each summer (July 2 and August 16), the Palio begins with a colorful medieval procession that culminates in a wild horse race around the Piazza del Campo. There are almost no rules, so anything goes. It’s even possible for a riderless horse to win; in fact, it’s considered good luck! The Palio has been going on for more than 800 years. Riders from each of the city’s neighborhoods, called “contrade,” dress up in medieval costumes for the competition. There are 17 contrade, each with an animal as its symbol. The “Palio” is an embroidered banner that is the prize for winning the race. And if you see any grown-ups wearing or sucking on baby pacifiers, it just means they belong to the contrada that won! Even if you don’t visit during the Palio, Siena is a great city to explore. Il Campo is a top spot for people-watching, and you can climb the Torre del Mangia, the tall bell tower of the Palazzo Publico. If you are there when they ring the bells, you will never forget it!

Monteriggioni Tour

Monteriggioni is a tourist destination included in the route of the Via Francigena which is part of the Cultural Routes. A few minutes are all it takes to get around Monteriggioni; the village is small and with few roads. The impression that remains in the memory, however, lasts forever. One realizes that he has discovered a magical place, almost like an enchanted castle like those known in fairy tales, as children. Arriving at the village in the evening, when the outer walls are illuminated by yellow lights, Monteriggioni seems almost a mirage in the Tuscan hills: the walls and the 14 suggestive towers, they tighten it like an embrace. They are still intact, just like when they were built in the Middle Ages to defend and protect the locals.

San Gimignano Tour

Probably the most famous small town in Italy, there are few places that evoke, with as much power, the atmosphere of mediaeval Tuscany. San Gimignano dominates the sorrounding area (Val d'Elsa) with its breathtaking skyline bristling with towers. Only fifteen of the original seventy-two towers survive today. These towers represented weath and influence more than security and defence: the higher the tower the richer the family. To complete your experience in this town , remind your driver to take you to taste the well known white wine of this town: Vernaccia di San Gimignano. A breathtaking experience of a different kind!
