We will then depart for San Gimignano, passing through some of the most jaw-dropping spectacular scenery in Tuscany. Feast your eyes on our classic rolling hills, vineyards and green olive groves.
Once in San Gimignano you will have plenty of time to stroll through the medieval city’s cobbled streets along which arise Romanesque and Gothic buildings.
Many have named San Gimignano the “Medieval Manhattan” due to its world famous watchtowers.

Indeed, the Gelateria Dondoli – two time Gelato World Champion, will boggle your mind. You may also wish to visit the Palazzo Comunale, Collegiate Chuch and Rocca di Montestaffoli.
