Descripción general

Vuélvete medieval en esta visita guiada desde Sienna a San Gimignano y Volterra. Dirígete a la ciudad de Monteriggioni, increíblemente diminuta, en lo alto de una colina, y luego haz una parada en San Gimignano, Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO, con su plétora de torres medievales y vistas impresionantes de la campiña toscana. Finalmente, pase un tiempo en un taller de alabastro en Volterra antes de disfrutar de un almuerzo rústico en una granja toscana. Esta excursión en grupos pequeños está limitada a solo ocho personas, lo que garantiza una gran atención personalizada por parte de la guía.

Sal de Siena en la mañana viajando hacia la ciudad medieval de San Gimignano. En el camino, pare en la pequeña ciudad de Monteriggioni, un encantador pueblo en una colina que se define por las murallas centenarias que la rodean. Pasee por la ciudad, admire las vistas y pasee por las paredes, aprendiendo de su guía sobre la historia del lugar.

Desde allí, vuelva a tomar el automóvil en dirección a San Gimignano, disfrutando de la campiña rústica de la Toscana en el camino: las colinas de la villa, los montículos de tierra llenos de viñedos y los olivares. Una vez en San Gimignano, camine por Via Francigena, una ruta de peregrinación de la Edad Media que se extiende desde Canterbury en Inglaterra hasta Roma. El camino va directamente a San Gimignano. Aprende de tu guía sobre peregrinos en la Edad Media e incluso hoy en día que recorrerían Francia y Suiza, incluso los Alpes, para finalmente llegar a Roma.

Tómese su tiempo libre para explorar por su cuenta. Camina por los angostos callejones empedrados. Contemple el vasto paisaje de la Toscana ante sus ojos. Asciende a una de las 14 torres de piedra parecidas a cerillas, que una vez fueron habitadas por familias en la Edad Media. Quédese un rato en la Piazza del Duomo y tal vez entre a la iglesia, la Collegiata. La fachada exterior puede parecer aburrida, pero el interior gótico a rayas blanco y negro es sorprendente.

Después de un poco de exploración, tómese algo para almorzar en una granja familiar a las afueras de la ciudad. Deléitese con delicias de fabricación local como queso y jamón. Y no se pierda nada hecho con el azafrán producido localmente.

Más tarde esa tarde, tome un paseo panorámico hacia el sur hasta la ciudad de Volterra. La ciudad, conocida por su alabastro, la piedra translúcida utilizada durante siglos para crear jarrones, lámparas y otras obras de arte, es un lugar estéticamente agradable para pasar un rato. Ver artesanos ejercer su oficio y pasar un tiempo paseando por las calles.

Después de aproximadamente una hora, suba al autobús y regrese a Siena.

Milo, nuestro guía turístico, era magnífico - bien informado, entretenido y agradable. Él nos llevó a una tercera ciudad de la colina y todavía tenía tiempo más que suficiente para visitar San Gimignano y Volterra. Almuerzo en la casa rural fue excelente. Esto fue absolutamente el mejor tour que tuvo en el mes que pasé en Italia. Lo recomiendo de todo corazón todo.

An easy way to explore Tuscany

Guiliamo was a great tour guide/driver. He is very friendly and passionate about history. The day started with a half hour at the castle at Monteriggioni, which is like a little, walled village. I think we had an hour at San Gimignagno. Then we had a delicious lunch at a saffron farm. The farm wasn't fancy, but the view was lovely and our hosts were very warm and welcoming. Then we had maybe around an hour and 15 minutes in Volterra. We stopped at an alabaster workshop on the way there. It was an amazing experience to watch this 87-year-old craftsman make a little bowl. I think that the tour is worthwhile if you don't have your own car and want to get into the countryside and get an introduction to hill towns. It's so easy to have someone else do the driving and great to be able to ask questions of an Italian tour guide. We also did another tour with Tuscan Escapes and had an equally good experience; their guides go through a rigorous training certification program required of Italian tour guides. My criticism would be that there isn't enough time to explore San G. and Volterra; we felt pressed for time and barely had enough time to walk around the towns and no extra time for shopping for visiting a museum, etc. Although the visit to Monteriggioni was nice, I could have definitely forgone that in order to have more time in the towns. However, we were aware about the short time in the towns when we read prior reviews.

Educational and charming

Guglielmo is an expert on the history of Tuscany and the role of the various cities and towns dating to the Etruscans. The destinations on the tour are extraordinary in their own right,. But our guide brought them to life with anecdotes and discursions that engaged us all and at times resembled a graduate seminar on Midieval economic history. It was one of our most worthwhile experiences in Italy.

Guglielmo is a fantastic guide, entertaining, knowledgeable, a great personality. Delightful hosts served us a delicious lunch on the terrace at their saffron farm, overlooking rolling green hills and farms. San Gimignano and Volterra are wonderful medieval villages and lovely scenery en route with a first stop at the small walled village of Monteriggioni. Easy meeting point in Siena.

It was a great trip. Departure in time, excellent guide (Giuglielmo) or William, who went the extra mile to ensure all our questions were answered and that we were comfortable. The lunch at the Azienda Agricola Biologica was delicious! Definitely a nice touch. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour. San Gimignano and Volterra are worth the curvy but short road!!!

The local company was absolutely the best. We were 6 in the tour and we all had a blast meeting each other. Don't opt for cheaper tour - do small group - you will NOT regret it!

We were very fortunate in that our tour was just the two of us with our excellent tour guide Elena. After a short drive we visited the small walled town of Montereggio, it was very well kept and a nice 15 minute walk around, not much to see, but very cute, as we were leaving 10ish a large tour bus was just arriving ! Next stop was a nice drive to San Gimigano, a stunning town that has many towers 7 was over 70, most of the town is geared towards tourists, lots of shops, restaurants and a few churches, we went up to the old fort area an had some great views over the town and countryside. After 1 1/2 hours of investigating on our own, we then met up with Elena and drove to a local saffron farm for a wonderful lunch, perfect setting and company. After leaving the Saffron farm we stopped at Volterra another beautiful city famous for alabaster, which we visited a workshop to see this stone being worked on and some free time to investigate on our own Our tour guide Elena was a pleasure to be with and she made the day perfect from start to finish. Recommend tour if you like to investigate a little on your own and want to leave the driving/parking t someone else.

Elena guided us from beginning to end on this fantastic trip touring the idyllic Tuscan countryside. We visited Volterra, charming and historic and San Gimignano, magnificent! The highlight was our lunch at the Tuscan saffron farm, delicious local food with our delightful hosts! Our group of eight were good fun. Elena had very good English and was very engaging and interested in us too! Thank you Elena for a memorable and magnificent day!
