What to expect
Choose the departure time that’s most convenient for you, then meet your guide at Porta San Giovanni, the main entrance to the town of San Gimignano. Start by walking the medieval Francigena pilgrimage road as your guide shares some background on San Gimignano, then pass a 12th-century pilgrim shelter built by the knights of Malta. Turn down a hidden side street for panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside, with rows of vines, olive groves, and cypress tress stretching into the distance. Continue to the central plaza to see San Gimignano’s Romanesque cathedral and the Torre Grossa, the tallest of the 14 medieval towers that are scattered throughout the town. If desired, enter the cathedral to see a collection of Gothic frescoes, or climb the tower (entrance fees are not included in the price of the tour). Keep walking to a hilltop park and the pretty Sant’Agostino church, and if desired, continue to a series of medieval fountains and landmarks at the bottom of the town. This tour concludes in central San Gimignano, where your guide can share tips on where to eat, drink, and keep exploring on your own.

Fantastic tour!
Jul 2019 • Family
Our tour with guide Chiara was exactly what we were hoping for - she had the perfect mix of humor/interesting information/lots of cultural insights and she really brought the city and the countryside to life. We all felt like we learned a lot, not only about the city, but about the region, rivalries, Italian vocabulary and attitudes. She also gave us great advice about another city to go in the afternoon and what roads to drive on to get there - she was spot on and made the rest of our day great too. Couldn’t recommend this tour enough and we loved our time with the awesome Chiara!
