Be ready for morning pickup at your hotel in Livorno, then climb into your private vehicle and set off for the area around Siena. The type of vehicle will depend on the number of people in your group. 

Relax on the journey to San Gimignano, located roughly halfway between Siena and Florence. Once you arrive, you're on your own to design your own tour of the famous medieval architecture of this walled town, taking in the feudal atmosphere that hints at the town's history. San Gimignano is famous for its white wine, called Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and its export of saffron. 

Back in your private vehicle, continue to Volterra, recently famous as a filming location for the 'Twilight' series of films. Visit the 800-year-old city hall and learn about the history of the alabaster export business. On Via Porta all'Arco, or 'Artisan Lane,' you'll find book binderies and paperies, jewelry stores, and leather and bronze shops, among others.

When you've finished up in Volterra, watch the scenery on your return trip to Livorno for drop-off at your hotel.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
San Gimignano
Get picked up at your hotel in central Livorno to begin the trip to the area around Siena. Stop first in San Gimignano, a small walled village about halfway between Florence and Siena. The town is famous for its medieval architecture and towers that rise above of all the surrounding buildings offering an impressive view of the city from the surrounding valley. At the height of its glory, San Gimignano's patrician families had built around 72 tower-houses as symbols of their wealth and power. Although only 14 have survived, San Gimignano still retains its feudal atmosphere and appearance. The village offers visitors the chance to step back in time while enjoying its local products including saffron and its white wine, the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Please note: A tour guide is not included, a suggestion may be to bring a guidebook. Remember to check the website for opening times of the location and the price of entrance ticket. Entrance fees are not included.
Duration: 4 hours 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Volterra
Volterra, the next stop, has attracted international attention more recently for its connection to the 'Twilight' series of books and movies. Part of the second movie, 'New Moon,' was filmed here. Volterra's 800-year-old city hall claims to be the oldest in Tuscany. Civic palaces like these were emblems of an era when city-states were powerful. Alabaster has long been a big industry in Volterra. Softer and easier to work than marble, this translucent mineral was traditionally sliced thin to provide windows for Italy's medieval churches. At the Alab'Arte shop, across from Volterra's Etruscan Museum, you can watch artisans at work. Because of its alabaster heritage, Volterra attracted other types of artists, who brought with them a rich variety of crafts. On Via Porta all'Arco, or 'Artisan Lane,' you'll find book binderies and paperies, jewelry stores, and leather and bronze shops, among others. Please note: A tour guide is not included, a suggestion may be to bring a guidebook.
