Sightseeing
San Gimignano is the most famous medieval village in the world! In fact it's the unique village which still preserve a lot of towers!! The skyline of San Gimignano that you can admire from the surrounding hills covered of vineyards is amazing! To visit in the town: the Square of the Duomo. Piazza della Cisterna. The panoramic point where you can enjoy a glass of Vernaccia Wine at Divinorum Winery. Visit to the highest part of the village, the fortress with the ancient walls and a small tower that you can climb, here you'll find also the WineMuseum. An Ice cream to Gelateria di Piazza "Dondoli" in Piazza della Cisterna is a must!! Parking Number 1 immediately direction Volterra is the best!

Volterra is one of the biggest Etruscan Archaeological site! The town hall palace is the oldest one in Tuscany and maybe in Italy! The village is famous also for alabaster production, made of Volterra a perfect place to buy souvenirs! When you'll go there you can combine San Gimignano and maybe Colle di Val d'Elsa in the same day. In fact Volterra is reachable from both villages and the distance is the same. The road is amazing and you will enjoy amazing view on the countryside characterized by cypress trees and wheat fields!! If you suffer from stomach ache, be prepared for many curves along the way!!! Underground Payment parking just next to the village entrance at the top of the hill.

Siena is amazing! We highly recommend to go there by CAR. You can easily find a place inside the soccer stadium which is just in the center of the town!! Just follow signs to the center and so to the stadium! 2 - 3 hours are ok to visit the town. It's not big like Florence and very quite. The heart of Siena is the Piazza del Campo (where the Palio takes place). If you have the time go inside the Duomo which is amazing and very cheap, sometime you can enter for free!! Also you can climb the famous Tower of Mangia and have a 360° view above the entire town but also Chianti, Val d'Orcia and Val di Merse!! A tour to Siena can be combined with Monteriggioni and Castellina in Chianti for example!

Colle di Val d'Elsa: Another medieval village. Maybe the most unknown compared to San Gimignano and Monteriggioni! The old town is also the highest part of the village! There is a free parking area just along the road between Colle downtown and the higher part of the village (half away). Here there are just few steps to clim (easy walk). From downtown Colle di Val d'Elsa you can also walk a nice trail along the river Elsa where you can also swim! Usually it's closed but if you'll find the small small theatre "Teatro dei Vari" open, we highly recommend to enter if they will allow you! ;) During Summer night life is in the small square Santa Caterina in the high part of the village.
