Here in San Gimignano, your guide will meet you and introduce you to the history of this small medieval Tuscan jewel. The 11th century town of San Gimignano rises 334 meters above the Elsa Valley along the ancient Via Francigena, the merchants’ and pilgrims’ traveling route towards Rome.
Food and wine lovers will find many shops that sell delicious local products including San Gimignano’s white Vernaccia wine. You will be able to taste this wine in several of the wine stores in the town. The ceramics are beautiful here, and there are also places for buying artisan leather goods and linens.
Your guide will introduce you to the treasures of San Gimignano: the Duomo or Collegiate Church and its magnificent frescoes, the Palazzo del Popolo, and the Palazzo Nuovo del Podestà which is now the town hall.
You will have free time to enjoy one of the many delicious lunch options in San Gimignano.
In the afternoon, your journey continues through the beautiful countryside of the Chianti region following the Chianti “Wine Road” that winds between olive groves and vineyards.
