THE SKYSCRAPERS OF THE MIDDLE AGES
San Gimignano got worldwide famous for its high medieval towers, wonderful example of the building customs in the late Middle Ages. We arrange private guided tours with a local licensed guide to San Gimignano and its surroundings. Our tours are an opportunity for you to learn how the town was such a crucial center for pilgrimages over Italy and how it got into decay after importan historical  facts in the surrounding.
The fantastic rural area around it make it the perfect point for trekking tours as well as for biking or Vespa routes.

Our guided tours of San Gimignano include also a visit to the museum of Vernaccia, the famous DOCG white wine typical of the area around the town. The museum is open from 1st April through 1st November every year.
Here is a list of main attractions:

– the stone towers of San Gimignano
– the fortress of San Gimignano
– the well in the main square
– the medieval walls

Combinations with tours to Siena or Volterra are possible.

 

In our tour we like showing you places off the beaten track and introducing you to Tuscan people with their personal stories, careers and characters.
You will have one of our guides with your party during the whole tour. Please, see below all the guides who can be with you.
During this experience you can also meet some of the Tuscan friends involved in the events. Please, see below which friends you are likely to encounter.

This is a message we received from Betty, who visited Siena, San Gimignano and Florence and met Arianna for one of our cookery lessons.

Dear Arianna,

I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful experiences we had on our Italy trip. Isabelle is a fantastic guide and she enabled us to get the most out of a short journey to such historic sites. Our entire family will not ever forget our cooking class with you and Ester. I will be sure to write the reviews for Trip Advisor since that is how I found you myself.
Thank you for your patience with our bad driving. I am so very glad that we eventually found you!!
Happy Easter! Best regards, Betty
