We will travel along a panoramic road to the beautiful Gothic and Medieval villages of San Gimignano & Volterra, which seems as though it has been frozen in time.
is a cosy village dating back to the Etruscan age, whose medieval architecture has been preserved during centuries! Located on the topp of a hill viewing the countryside, surrounded by stone walls, San Gimignano is said to be “the Manhattan of Tuscany”, because of its high towers, built by the ancient noble families, enriched with the commerce, who wanted to show their power! Visiting San Gimignano
