From your Accommodation / Hotel in Florence directly to the Tuscan Hills
Our Bella Toscana – Chianti and San Gimignano with Light-Lunch from Florence will start directly from your accommodation. The driver will pick you up with a comfortable minivan. We have access to most of the city areas in Florence. However, in case your accommodation is located in less practical districts, we will agree on the closest meeting point. After that will start your trip in direction of the Chianti Classico Region, one of the most beautiful wine regions in the world. During the journey, you will admire romantic vineyards, rolling hills, cypress trees and medieval villages.
Special Wineries selected for you
Our mission is to make you enjoy unique experiences in Tuscany. Therefore, we selected for you the best wineries. They are small-medium properties and we have been working with them for many years. We think that they are the right place, where to discover the real Tuscan flavours. As locals, we consider them compatible with our ideas of authenticity. For this reason, we do not like to bring our guests to huge wine producers, we prefer that you experience the real Chianti Region. In the local cellars, you will enjoy the best wines together with local products perfectly matching each taste.
Visit San Gimignano, the Manhattan of the Middle Ages
Firstly we approach this medieval town, you understand why people call it the Manhattan of the Middle Ages. Indeed, you will see 14 stone towers rising from the hill. These towers were synonym of power in the past and the richest families used to create high towers to show their wealth. In fact, it was very expensive to build and maintain a tower. However, many pilgrims visited San Gimignano in the past because of its location. As a matter of fact, the old Via Francigena runs here. It was the old pilgrim route going from Canterbury to Rome through Switzerland and France.
This town belongs to UNESCO for its well-preserved buildings and artistic value. San Gimignano is famous for the white wine produced here, Vernaccia. Also other local products are worth a taste, like saffron and golden ham (cured-dry with local saffron).
Main attractions in San Gimignano
Walking in the old stone streets of San Gimignano, you feel like time has stopped. The medieval atmosphere is perceivable not only because of its old towers, but also for the many historical buildings and churches. Among these:
- The Palazzo Comunale, the town hall of San Gimignano, decorated with beautiful frescos and point of access to Torre Grossa (tallest tower in the town),
- The Cathedral of San Gimignano, right next to the town Hall
- The Church of San Agostino,
- Piazza della Cisterna, its main square with a characteristic well in the centre.
