From your Accommodation in Pisa

We will pick up you and your group from your accommodation (if it is on our pick up list) and we will start our Private Tour from Pisa through the picturesque Tuscan Hills. From our comfortable minivan  we will admire the unique landscape. Indeed many movies based in Tuscany chose this landscape for their scenes.

 

San Gimignano: Discover The Italian Medieval History

After approx. 1,5 hours we will get off our minivan and visit our first destination San Gimignano. This is a small hill town surrounded by medieval walls in the province of Siena. When driving closer to the village, you will immediatly notice the typical medieval skyline made of 13 old towers. The narrow streets and the old stone buildings will bring you back to the Middle Ages. We suggest you to stop in one of the many wine shops to taste the local Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Indeed, this town is very famous for this white wine, an ancient variety of Vernaccia grape growing on the sandstone hillsides. Other typical products from this area are saffron and the so called Golden Ham (dry-cured ham made with saffron from San Gimignano).

 

What You Will See during Your Private Tour in San Gimignano

The historic centre of San Gimignano has been declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1990. Among the reasons we find the well preserved buildings within the medieval walls, dating back to the 13th century.In fact, you can find in the old town great examples of Romanesque and Gothic architecture.  But the main feature of this village are surely the unique 13 towers, that every visitor can recognize in the distance.
You will learn more about the history of the town and its main attractions. Firts of all, the main town square, called Piazza della Cisterna. Secondly, the Piazza Duomo, with the beautiful Collegiata Cathedral and its bell tower. The Town Hall is very close to these two squares. Last but not least, the Church of Sant’ Agostino, where you can admire many artworks from early Italian Renaissance period.

Volterra: an Unforgettable Town to Visit in Tuscany

Volterra is a charming town situated in the province of Pisa and located on a hill surrounded by majestic fortification walls. It is well known for its alabaster production and for its Etruscan origins confirmed by the many remains in the area. While approaching to the village you will notice many alabaster quarries along the unique clay hills. Many local artisans here use this raw stone to produce beautiful handmade jewellery you can find in every shop. Volterra is probably one of the most interesting towns you can visit during your Trip in Tuscany where you can walk into history. This stone made city was founded more than 3000 years ago passing from the Etruscan to the Roman domination during the mid-3rd century before Christ.

 

What You Will Admire during Your Private Tour in Volterra

Once in Volterra, we will admire the impressive Roman Theatre, built during the 1st century b.ch. and excavated in the 1950s. We will then lead you trhough the narrow streets and small squares of the town to discover:

  • Piazza dei Priori, with the famous Palazzo dei Priori
  • the Palazzo Pretorio (external visit)
  • the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta
  • the Etruscan City Walls with the ancient Etruscan port
  • the Medicean Fortress

It will be a fascinating walk through EtruscanMedieval and Renaissance courts, during which you will visit the traditional shops of alabaster and local crafts. In Volterra you will have free time for your shopping or to get lost in the history of this town.

Tuscan Wines: Taste Real Italy! (Optional)

If you say Italy, you say Wine. Chianti is probably the most famous Tuscan wine all over the world. However, it is not the only wine in Tuscany.

Guided Tour in Local Wineries: Enjoy Only Original Italian Wine

In Volterra you can experience a wine degustation in a typical local cellar, where you have the chance to taste several wines such as the Original Tuscan Chianti, the Vernaccia of San Gimignano, the Vin Santo of the Chianti, the Brunello, etc.

Discover the Taste of the Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil

An Italian degustation is not complete if you do not combine your glass of wine with some local appetizers together with a classic slice of roasted bread with delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top, produced only with local olives.
