No one can deny that Tuscany is a truly fantastic location – and with so much to see and do in this region, it’s not hard to see why this part of Italy is so famous. One of Tuscany’s many iconic features are its hilltop towns, and if you’re interested in seeing one for yourself, you’re sure to want to visit San Gimignano. Sometimes known as Medieval Manhattan because of the fourteen stone towers that make up the town’s skyline, there’s a variety of things for you to enjoy here.

When it comes to vacations in Tuscany, there’s nothing quite like spending a day or two exploring San Gimignano.

La Rocca di Montestaffoli

The ruins of La Rocca di Montestaffoli are located near the Piazza delle Erbe – and this 14th century fortress is well worth checking out. Whether you want to relax in the shade of the olive groves, or enjoy the outdoor cinema in the summer; there’s sure to be something just for you.

Vernaccia di San Gimignano

Whether you consider yourself to be a wine connoisseur or not, you may to want to try some Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Made from Vernaccia white grapes from local vineyards, this wine is world famous, so why not buy some from the source? Once you try it for yourself, you’re likely to understand why this beverage is so well loved.

Cooking classes

Tuscany has some incredible restaurants – and if you’ve ever eaten at a trattoria here, you’re sure to have fallen in love with the traditional cuisine.
