Full description
San Gimignano is a town that offers the perfect combination of art, history and picturesque countryside, and you can experience it all from the comfort of a luxury van on our half-day tour from Florence. After picking you up from your hotel in Florence, your tour escort will drive you to the Elsa Valley, nestled in the lush Tuscan countryside that surrounds San Gimignano. From here you will see just why San Gimignao is often described as a medieval Manhattan. Thanks to its proximity to the Francigena Way, an important route during the Middle Age, the small republic of San Gimignao flourished during this time. The richest families in the region displayed their wealth in the form of magnificent tower houses, and many of these majestic buildings survive to this day. It’s these grand structures that make San Gimignao one of the most popular towns in the region, as well as a beautiful example of a typical medieval town from the old ages.
