San Gimignano and Siena both deserve a LOT more than a day, but if your trip through Tuscano is quick and you don't have time to stay at both places, the CAF tours excursion is definitely better than not going at all. This tour will give you an hour or so to visit San G., taste some wines, eat gelato, shop for pottery, or just walk through the old walled town and gaze at the views.

In the afternoon you will visit Siena and take a short guided tour with the leader. Then we had several hours to visit on our own. Siena has loads of charming shops and restaurants, as well as the famous piazza. Having already spent several days in Siena on a previous trip, we took the opportunity to visit one of our favorite restaurants ever, Fuori Porto, just outside the Porto Romano, and rekindle our friendship with Paolo the owner. A wonderful meal ensued.

The excursion was 49 euro and was a full day of fun.
