What to expect

Spend a memorable day in the beautiful historic towns of San Gimignano and Volterra. Explore San Gimignano, the renowned medieval town that offers breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside from its over 1000 ft of elevation. Next, discover Volterra's Etruscan heritage, ancient tombs, Roman ruins and historic squares alongside lively alabaster workshops.

Enjoy scenic views of winding roads crossing vineyards and olive groves on your way from Florence to San Gimignano, one of the most popular destinations in Tuscany. This beautiful stronghold is a treasure trove of medieval architecture frozen in time. Above all, the town is famous for its ancient towers, which still stand out from its skyline, earning it the nickname Manhattan of the Middle Ages. Explore San Gimignano on your own, with insider tips on where to find the best homemade gelato or local Vernaccia wine.

Twilight saga fans shouldn't miss Volterra, the set of the movie New Moon and your next stop. Here you'll see an incredible array of historic sites such as Etruscan tombs built hundreds of years before Christ, elaborate Roman baths and an incredible theater excavated in the rock. Take some time to explore the boutiques and workshops that line the streets, where you can see how alabaster is worked to make typical artworks.
