San Gimignano is a Tuscany village really close to Pisa. From the moment you walk inside through a gateway in the old wall you feel magically transported into another time and place. San Gimignano it also call the medieval Manhattan because of its ancient skyscrapers. The highest tower reaches 170 feet, and you can clim to the top of several of these towers. From there of course you get a splendid view of the old town and the beautiful countryside around it. We’ll take you on a walk through the main lanes and little side alleys.
The San Gimignano village is so small, it’s just meters from north to south, and about 350 meters from east to west, so you could walk it from top to bottom in 20 minutes.
The tall gateway is the Arch of Becci that was formerly an entrance to the old medieval town, but then the town grew little bigger, they expanded the walls, and this arch became the passageway from the main lane into the central square of the Piazza della Cisterna.

A truly amazing experience for me and my husband. Stefano was great to work with both in planning our excursion and while we were on our tour. It is very obvious that he is incredibly knowledgeable about the wine and the region in general as well as a great personality and a wonderful guide. He was very professional, responsive, and made everything very easy to plan.
We had a great time exploring the Piemonte and were especially grateful for his knowledge of the Tuscany and San Gimignano areas and stories both of the history of the region and his personal experiences. He also had great recommendations of both fine dining and quality local dining establishments. I also don’t think you’ll find a better value for what you get, including transportation, lunch, wine and access to the wonderful wineries we visited.
On our wine tours we were introduced to incredible people that have been working the same land for generations. The families know all there is to know about their wines and care deeply for them. Being able to speak with and learn from them allowed us to gain a deeper appreciation for the wines we sampled.
Stefano’s tour was a highlight of our trip and an experience we will not soon forget. I would highly recommend booking Stefano if you extend to explore the wine in the Tuscany regions.
