Siena & San Gimignano Tour

San Gimignano

Already a powerful community in the 1100, San Gimignano became famous for its daring towers built to symbolize the wealth of the town and of its merchants. Thanks to the towers, today it is known as “The Manhattan of Middle Ages” and it is one of the best representation of Italian Borghi, where time seems to have stopped.


Welcome to the city of the Palio! You will visit the glorious Cathedral and its interior and Campo Square while walking around with a native: you’ll discover “official” info as well as “back-stage” stories. According to your interests, we might want to go and explore a hidden art collection, like the museum of the Biccherne, (unique painted book covers for ledgers), decide to visit a Contrada (clubhouse of a town district, or enter a recently discovered room underneath the Cathedral, covered in frescos dating back to the end of the 12th hundreds: la Cripta del Duomo di Siena.
