Day Trips in Italy – San Gimignano, Monteriggione, Siena, Chianti (Pt 1)

I was lucky enough to be able to go on a tour with Ciao Florence which is a tour company in the florence area, and go to the amazing towns of San Gimignano, Monteriggione, Siena, and top it off with a wine tasting in Chianti.

Being a short distance from Florence, I thought taking a tour would be a fabulous way of ticking these places off my list.

The first place I went to was San Gimignano. Such a small quant town. It will truly steal your heart.

I then went to the town of Monteriggione which I was told has a population of less than 60!

It was also the place where Dante Alighieri was exiled, and was mentioned in his poem the Divine Comedy.
