Siena and San Gimignano

Journey to the heart of medieval Tuscany to discover Siena and San Gimignano.

Duration: 6 hours + transfer time from/to pick up/drop off location.

Arrival in Siena, one of the jewels of Tuscany and home of the world-famous Palio. You can take a walk among the “Contrade” (quarters) of the city and relive the competitive and celebratory spirit of the Palio, between the sacred and the profane. A visit of the marvelous Piazza del Campo is in order, unique in the world for its shell shape, the Torre del Mangia, the Cathedral and the Basilica of Saint Dominic.

Afternoon

Next, after the lunch break, we continue to San Gimignano, for a stroll through this quaint village that will take you back to the Middle Ages, with its towers, the Rocca di Montestaffoli, Piazza Duomo and Piazza della Cisterna, the most beautiful of all squares in the country.

Matera

Matera lies in a small valley in Basilicata – or Lucania, as it is also called – and it has been elected as the 2019 European Capital of Culture: a nearly unknown area harboring ancient history.

Duration: 5 hours + transfer time from/to pick up/drop off location.

Matera is famous all over the world for the “Sassi”, a collection of primitive and bare dwellings built with water and tuff that have been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites for their particularity. The city is age-old: in fact, the first evidence of human presence in this area dates back to the Paleolithic Age, and in the reconstruction of the city’s history we found barbarian invasions and the presence of Byzantines and Christians during the Roman period. In addition to an enchanting walk through the history of what is now the Old Town of the Lucanian city, Matera invites you to visit numerous rock churches and crypts dating from the early Middle Ages. Thanks to the typical white tone of the tuff and the surrounding landscape, in the Christmas season Matera becomes the natural and ideal setting for a live nativity scene, taking the visitor back to the Palestine of 2000 years ago.
