On this tour we will take you to discover one of the best preserved medieval towns in the world, San Gimignano, recognized by UNESCO as a Cultural Heritage. Along the way we are going to visit the Monteriggioni fortress.
The medieval fortress also functioned as a defense for the Via Francigena, an ancient and religious route used by pilgrims in the Middle Ages.
We will then continue on to a small farm to have a multi-course Tuscan lunch and enjoy a tasting of products that are made on the premises. We will learn about winemaking techniques and will taste great local organic wines.
In the afternoon, we will visit San Gimignano and admire its medieval towers and the breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding hills.
On the way back, it will be possible to make one further stop at a small winemaker to taste their organic wine.
