Livorno, Italy Cruise Port – Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra Private Tour (8 – 9 hours)

Duration: 8-9 hours

This tour is round trip from the Livorno Cruise Port.

Take a full day excursion to visit three of the most interesting towns in Tuscany. Siena is the embodiment of a medieval city. Its inhabitants pursued their rivalry with Florence right into the area of urban planning. Throughout the centuries, they preserved their city’s Gothic appearance, acquired between the 12th and 15th centuries. During this period the work of Duccio, the Lorenzetti brothers and Simone Martini was to influence the course of Italian and, more broadly, European art. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape.  San Gimignano, is known as the Manhattan of Tuscany with its many medieval towers built in the middle ages by the most influential families to show-off their wealth and power; today only 14 of the 70 built are still standing. The town was built along the Via Francigena, on an important road between Siena and other European cities to the north of Italy. For centuries used by the great religious soujourns on their way to Rome. The traditional products, since ancient times, are ceramics, the Vernaccia wine (the only top quality white wine produced in Tuscany) and saffron.  Volterra, one of the lesser known Tuscan towns but very rich in history as it was founded by the Etruscans more than 3,000 years ago. The beauty of the countryside, with the unusual clay cliffs and the mix of different historical periods (the Etruscans museum, the Roman amphitheatre, the medieval fortress) make Volterra a most unique town.
