Your LivTours’ Day Trip from Florence starts when your driver meets you at your hotel, whisking you out of the city to the rolling green hills of Tuscany and in 90 minutes you are in San Gimignano. Sit back and relax in your luxury vehicle as your driver shares stories, gossip and anecdotes about the estates and villas you will pass along the way.
Once you are approaching San Gimignano, your driver will share with you all the best sites to visit preparing you for the best possible experience. You will have time to explore this charming Tuscan town on your own before meeting up with your driver a few hours later for lunch.
Your driver will take you across the valley to a typical Tuscan winery where you will have the pleasure of enjoying your lunch. Originally an ancient convent, this stunning property has been transformed into an outstanding winery and farm. Your traditional lunch includes a delicious wine in this amazingly beautiful location. Once an ancient convent, this beautiful property has been transformed into one of the finest wine producers in the area. It also has a local farm and offers a breathtaking view right from your table.
A tasty light lunch will accompany your tasting of three or four of the winery’s best which is followed by a personal tour of the winery. As you sip local wine and laugh with the owners of the property you will truly understand why this region is world famous.
Your Day Tour from Florence continues after lunch by heading to the infamous town of Siena. Once in Siena, your private driver will take you from site to site while telling you the elaborate history and intriguing stories of the city and giving you free time to explore each site on your own. One of your stops is sure to be Piazza del Campo. You will take delight in this shell shaped square and imagine the crowds that gather here to watch Il Palio, the infamous horse races that take place twice a year.
After a full day exploring your driver will take you back to Florence. Sit back and recharge on the less than two hour drive while catching the last glimpse of the sun setting over the Tuscan Hills. Your Day Tour from Florence ends back at your hotel, with a camera full of pictures and perhaps a bottle of Tuscan wine, straight from the vineyard you visited earlier in the day.

5 star experience
"I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful this trip was! We had a driver who was wonderful, and added a tour guide for this tour. Our tour guide Raffaela was so much fun. She was filled with fabulous stories and information about the areas we passed while driving to each destination, and when walking through the little towns. We ate at a beautiful restaurant that had amazing views, and delicious local foods. We fell even more in love with Italy, but more important we fell in love with Raffaela! "
