Why Choose It?
- Explore the seemingly cinmamon-sprinkled city of Siena.
- Dine on a traditional lunch in a local trattoria.
- Marvel at the perfectly preserved towers of San Gimignano.
This tour offers the perfect opportunity to explore two of Tuscany’s most stunning medieval towns. Admire the architecture spread throughout the seemingly cinnamon-sprinkled city of Siena before moving on to San Gimignano to explore the perfectly preserved town of the 14 towers.
After taking this private tour from Rome or Florence, you’ll feel you’ve fully explored the treasures of Tuscany’s lush and rolling countryside, experiencing the real side of rural Italy as you acquaint yourself with two of its most charming settlements.
Explore the winding streets of Siena
The first stop on your private Siena and San Gimignano tour is the medieval city of Siena, a fierce rival of Florence both past and, to some extent, present. Siena was one of Italy’s leading city states throughout the Middle Ages, booming because of its still existent bank – Monte dei Paschi di Siena.
Wander the historic center’s contradas, the boroughs in which Siena is divided, and learn all the stories surrounding the famous Palio, a horseracing event dating back centuries and still held twice a year on July 2nd and August 16th in Siena’s Piazza del Campo.
Visit Siena’s Piazza del Campo, Duomo, and Church of San Francesco
Explore Siena’s Piazza del Campo, described by French philosopher Michel de Montaigne in the 16th century as the most beautiful in Italy, and marvel at its imposing bell-tower which looms out over the square.
Step inside the 13th-century Basilica of San Domenico, an incredible architectural achievement built on the slopes of the Sienese hillside. As well as housing an enviable collection of Tuscan artworks, the basilica is home to the relics of Saint Catherine of Siena – one of Italy’s two patron saints, the other being Saint Francis of Assisi.
Your final stop in Siena is the Duomo, whose beauty easily rivals that of its Florentine equivalent. Consecrated in 1215, it manifests one of the best examples of Italian Gothic and Romanesque architecture and boasts artworks by Bernini within.
Indulge in a traditional lunch at a local restaurant
For lunch, we will suggest one of Siena’s most reputed local trattorie, where you can linger over a long lunch accompanied by fine local wines, originating from the Sienese region or nearby Chianti or Val d’Orcia.
Meat is particularly popular across Tuscany, especially bistecca (beef steak) wild-boar based ragù. Yet the variety of culinary delights on offer caters to all tastes. Just make sure to try pici alla senese, the area’s beloved pasta, consisting of thick tubes of spaghetti coated in a mouthwatering meat sauce.
Continue on to San Gimignano, another jewel in Tuscany’s medieval crown
With your private driver you’ll then journey through the rolling hills of the Sienese countryside until you reach the towered town of San Gimignano. No town encapsulates medieval Tuscany like San Gimignano. Its state of perfect preservation owes not to its strength but to its weakness – for it was only the complete capitulation of its nobility in the 14th century (and an unfortunate spate of the Black Death) that saved the settlement from destruction.
The key to appreciating the enchanting town of San Gimignano is to take it slowly. Duck into the Collegiata to admire its breathtaking frescoes, indulge yourself with a gelato in the town square, and treat yourself to a glass of Vernaccia di San Gimignano wine – the product that’s made the town famous.
Having experienced the true Tuscany, your private driver will take you back through the rolling hills of the Italian hinterland to your accommodation in Rome or Florence.

The location of the class is in a beautiful old building and the equipment and work surfaces are great for teaching people to cook things. The main chef and the assistants were so welcoming and explained everything well. I've been wanting to learn how to prepare and cook artichokes for ages and we got to do that in our class, which was great. You make a variety of different dishes, so learn different techniques and get an understanding of how Italians make traditional dishes. Everything you make, you get to eat and it was all delicious! read less - 5/29/2020

She took time to learn our interests (geology for my daughter) and pointed out items that spoke to that interest. She was easy to understand and speak with and our tour flowed smoothly and never felt rushed or too slow. Lea was amazing and I would definitely book with Walks Inside Rome again. read less - 11/12/2019

Lots of energy, funny stories to tell, information about the neighborhood and life in Rome. She was so friendly. She really made the evening for us. The food stops were great too, of course. We tasted Italian cheeses, cured meats, wine and fried cod, pizza, pasta, and gelato. And I might be forgetting something! Definitely no need to go out to eat after this tour! (The cost for all the food and drinks was included in the tour price). Some of the stops were so tasty we revisited them before the end of our trip.
My teenage son and I did four different tours with Walks Inside Rome on this trip and we enjoyed them all, but I think this was our favorite. read less - 10/23/2019

Unlike other cooking classes I saw when I was searching for one, this one first meets at an amazing market (I recommend going early to grab some goodies) second, you choose your meal , it’s what you and your group decide on for the day (btw it’s a lot of food some come hungry) and lastly it is all hands on the chef explains what to do, shows you an example and then it is all you (of course the chef is there to help and guide when needed). Oh o forgot to mention lots of drinking!!! Just do it, you won’t regret it. read less - 10/19/2019

She was knowledgeable, funny and able to help us navigate in a way that maximized our time and experience. We would wholeheartedly suggest spending the extra money for the private early morning tour- skipping the horrible lines and minimizing wading through the masses on overcrowded group tours. We were able to see things that other tour guides don’t have access to and learned so much without feeling overwhelmed by trying to figure out what to see as there is SO much! We would absolutely book again with WIR and Barbara! read less - 10/15/2019
