This beautiful town situated within the walls of a medieval castle, was built between 1214 and 1219. The city is in the path of the piligrimage route Via Francigena, set by the Council Of Europe, and is therefore part of Cultural routes.
The tour continues to San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is known for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which are seen well away. The origins of San Gimignano date back to the third century BC when it was occupied by the Etruscans. In the Middle Ages and during the Renaissance, it was a stopping point for Catholic pilgrims traveling along the Via Francigena to Rome and the Vatican, as well as for merchants, through which the city began to develop trade. San Gimignano is also known for its local white wine, Vernaccia, which is produced exclusively here.
Our tour then continues to Volterra, a jewel of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Renaissance times, famous for its history and the alabaster production.
