Siena

With its striking medieval cityscape, Siena is famous for its cuisine, art, museums and the Palio - a twice-a-year horse race conducted in the city's main square with 15th-century costumes and great festivity. The Palio is held on July 2nd and on August 16th. Before the race, the bareback riders and horses parade through the street, ending at the Piazzo del Campo which echoes to the sound of people cheering watching the always-exciting race. Symbols of the Palio are in evidence throughout the city, throughout the year. Siena is also famous for jazz, with a festival that begins in June and extends into July.

Exclusive Wine Tours in MONTALCINO & MONTEPULCIANO

This tour concentrates on two hilltop jewels of wine: Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The Brunello, a rich, robust pure Sangiovese, is one of the handfuls of DOCG wines hunted by wine collectors for its depth of flavor and potential to age for decades. In nearby Montepulciano, the Vino Nobile has been praised by popes and princes alike for centuries for its elegance and “noble” structure. The tour will start around 11 am in the first of the two wineries. Before the tasting, you will enjoy a tour of the entire vineyard including a stroll through the vines continuing on to the cellar where you will be shown the various stages of wine production - fermentation, maturation, aging, etc. The wine tasting is usually accompanied by typical Tuscan dishes and guided by the owners/winemakers. The second winery, although still adhering to the strict guidelines imposed by the region, always differs from the first in its style and methods of production, allowing you to experience and to compare the contrasting characteristics of the two wineries, that reflect the strategy and the personality of the wine makers.
