From Lucca to San Gimignano and Volterra with a stop at Bocelli’s Theatre

Our private driver will pick-up you from your accommodation with our comfortable minivan. We will start our  Tour from Lucca to San Gimignano and Volterra with a stop at Theatre of Silence.
During our drive, we will travel through the typical Tuscan countryside.

Discover the medieval San Gimignano on our Private Day Tour

Our first stop will be San Gimignano, a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena. Locals use to call it the Manhattan of the The Middle Ages, because the town is surrounded by 13 medieval towers. Those were the symbol of power and wealth in the past. Indeed the most important merchant families used to build high towers to show their economic stability. But San Gimignano will surprise you not only for its long history. Due to the many vineyards and olive trees in the area, also gastronomy is very important here.  Therefore, the typical products you should not miss are saffron and the singular Golden Ham (dry-cured ham with saffron).

What You Will See during Your Day Tour in San Gimignano

Within the walls, the well-preserved buildings and churches are great examples of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Our guide will tell you about the history of the town and of its most famous buildings.

First of all, Piazza della Cisterna, the main square of the town. Secondly Piazza Duomo with the Collegiata Cathedral and its bell tower.

Last but not least, the Church of Sant’Agostino, housing many artworks from early Italian Renaissance. Therefore, the historical centre of San Gimignano has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Have a look at the Official Website for Tuscan Tourism to know more about San Gimignano.

Volterra: another jewel town in Tuscany

Volterra is a hilltop town, famous for its alabaster production and for the Etruscan wall ruins still standing there. Indeed its old history will take your attention, because the Etruscans populated this area since the 8th century BC until it became a very important trading centre.
Regarding the alabaster production, you will be able to see some of its alabaster quarries on the unique clay hills in the distance. This stone is often used by local craftsmen to produce beautiful handmade artifacts.

Main attractions in Volterra on our Day Tour from Lucca

Once arrived in Volterra, we will lead you to the Roman Theatre, built during the 1st century bc and excavated in the 1950s. After that, it will be shown to you the main attractions in Volterra. Among these, Piazza dei Priori, the Palazzo Pretorio (external visit) and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. Also, the Etruscan City Walls and the Medicean Fortress will be part of your visit.

In Volterra you will have some free time for shopping or to simply get inspired by the many Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance courts.
