What to expect

Enjoy total immersion in the Middle Ages in one of Italy's most beautiful medieval villages: San Gimignano. You will never forget the wonderful ancient towers and the dreamlike landscape by which this amazing place is surrounded.

From Porta San Giovanni, one of the main gates, you'll reach Piazza della Cisterna in the heart of the town, which still shows traces of the commercial and civic life in ancient times. The guide will suggest you where to taste a delicious homemade ice cream that won many prizes in Italy and Europe.

You will then admire the wonderful monuments in Piazza del Duomo, the political and religious center of San Gimignano, such as the Cathedral and Palazzo Pubblico which houses the beautiful Civic Museum. From the museum, you can climb the highest tower called Torre Grossa (Big Tower), from which you can take incredible pictures of the village and the surrounding landscape. If you are interested in visiting one of these places, the guide will be happy to accompany you to discover their beauties from the inside.

Finally, reach Rocca Montestaffoli fortress, the highest point of San Gimignano and its ultimate panoramic spot. Here you'll find the Vernaccia Museum dedicated to the famous DOCG white wine produced in the area. Take a break in the beautiful garden or in the wine shop before heading back to town.
