San Gimignano Private Tour
At the time of your choice, you'll meet your guide at Porta San Giovanni, one of the most important points of entry in the walls surrounding San Gimignano. We'll take a moment to admire this 13th-century monument, and then set off on a private tour through the historic center of this charming Tuscan town.
First, we'll head to the Piazza della Cisterna, the beating heart of San Gimignano and the main commercial axis of the town, even in ancient times. From this point, we'll see some of the tower-houses that for years symbolized the power of the wealthiest families. Your guide will also be sure to tell you lots of stories of the most illustrious sagas that occurred in this area.
Continuing on, the tour will take you to admire the exterior of the Palazzo Comunale, which has a very special connection to the famous Florentine poet Dante Alighieri. Then we'll reveal interesting details as we admire the facade of the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta, flanked by Torre Grossa, the highest tower in San Gimignano.
Next, we'll take a stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets, coming across the Church of Sant'Agostino and various craft stores along the way, until we reach the Rocca Montestaffoli, an ancient 14th-century fortress perched on top of a hill. Here, you'll visit the Vernaccia wine museum, where you'll discover the secrets of this San Gimignano Appellation of Origin.
After two hours of sightseeing, we'll end the private tour by returning to the starting point.
