We will head towards the Val d’Orcia, renown for its fantastic landscape featuring the unique soft rolling hills typical of Tuscany and home of Pienza, the village which was rebuilt during the 1400's by Pope Pius II, a great humanist and poet, who committed one of the best Renaissance architects to make his dream come true: building an "Ideal Renaissance City". Enjoy a guided tour of the interiors of the Papal Palace and admire its jewels.
Then we will go to Siena, the city that many visitors like even more than Florence, where walking along the XIII century streets and seeing its palaces, churches and squares you will feel the warmth expressed by a Siena's old Latin motto "Cor magis tibi Sena pandit" (Siena opens her big heart to you). During the middle-ages this was one of the most powerful banking city in the world and it was an example of great civilization, it features some of the most important works of art in Italy going back to that period.
On the way back to Florence we will close the day in beauty, stopping in Monteriggioni, a perfect example of medieval walled town that, because of its appearance, was even mentioned by Dante Alighieri in the "Inferno" of The Divine Comedy.
