Tuscany Hiking Tour from Siena Including Wine Tasting
Leave Siena behind and hike part of Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrimage route through rural Tuscany, followed by a wine tasting in the village of Monteriggioni. Embark on a 5-mile (8-km) trek that passes through the heart of the Tuscan countryside, past picturesque castles, villages, vineyards and ruins. Once you reach the medieval walled village of Monteriggioni, reward yourself during a wine tasting session, where you will sip on 3-4 different local, organic wines. Return to Siena at your own leisure by bus (bus tickets provided).
Meet at the Siena train station (in front of pharmacy) at 9:00am. Give your mind a peaceful rest from the noise of the crowded towns and follow your expert guide on a pleasant walk along the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrim's route that became the main artery to reach Rome throughout the Middle Ages. This route - a spiritual pilgrimage as well as a wealthy trade route - enjoyed today by pilgrims and hikers alike enable you to experience the beauty of the Tuscan countryside and the glory of its medieval past, still present in its wonderfully preserved castles and villages. Walk through forests and fields, vineyards and olive groves from Siena to the imposing fortress of Monteriggioni, a medieval town built by the Sienese as a bastion of defense in their wars against Florence.
