Chianti Wineries especially selected for our Bella Toscana Tour from Versilia

It is very important for us that you enjoy authentic experiences in Tuscany. For this reason, we selected for you the best wineries. When we say best, we refer to what is compatible with our mission.  The wineries are small-medium properties, that have been working with us for a long time. We think that there you can discover the real Tuscan flavours. In fact, we do not like to bring our guests to enormous wine producers dedicated to quantity. In these local cellars, you will enjoy only good wines and combine it to delicious local products.

 

Visit San Gimignano on our Bella Toscana Tour from Versilia

Later, we will drive to the so-called the Manhattan of the Middle Ages.  Locals like to call it this way because of the many towers. Indeed, they give San Gimignano a singular touch. The 14 standing towers are visible in the distance. They were synonym of power. In fact, the most important families in San Gimignano used to build high towers to show off. Additionally, many pilgrims passed through the old town in the Middle Ages on their way to Rome. As a matter of fact, the old Via Francigena ran here. It was the old pilgrim route going from Northern Europe (Canterbury, UK) to the eternal city through Switzerland and France.
San Gimignano is a World Heritage UNESCO Site for its well-preserved historical monuments. But it is also known for the Vernaccia (a white wine) and other local products like saffron and golden ham (cured-dry with local saffron).

 

Main attractions in San Gimignano

The town of San Gimignano is rich in history and art. Walking around here, you will literally travel back to the Middle Ages with your mind. Surely, our expert guide will show you the main attractions in the old town:

  • The Palazzo Comunale (town hall) and its tower Torre Grossa (tallest tower in San Gimignano),
  • The Cathedral, in the same square,
  • The Church of San Agostino,
  • Piazza della Cisterna, its main square with a characteristic well in the centre
  • The stone towers.
