Start the journey from Florence and let yourself be enchanted by the mesmerizing tuscan countryside. Marvel at the rolling hills, medieval towns, olive groves, cypress trees and endless vineyards on every turn. The first stop of your trip will be the enchanting town of San Gimignano, also known as the “Manhattan of the Middle Ages”. Walk through the little narrow cobblestone streets to feel its genuine and unique medieval atmosphere and reach Piazza della Cisterna, once the market square used also as a stage for festivals and tournaments. Take the open passage and enter Piazza Duomo, home to the Municipal Palace, and climb up to the top of the Torre Grossa: the highest tower of the city that counts 218 steps. After the visit to this pearl of the tuscany region, you will have the chance to taste the famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano: a light and crisp white wine with floral and fruity notes. Immerse yourself in the history of this typical wine and let yourself be carried away by the tastes and smells of one of the cornerstones of Tuscan wine tradition. Then, start the journey back to Florence.
