San Gimignano

The ancient medieval town of San Gimignano, known for its thirteen towers that still characterize its landscape in the Elsa Valley, grew out of the ruins of an ancient Etruscan village . Only in the 10th century did the town take the name of the Bishop of Modena San Gimignano who saved it from barbarian invasions.
From 1119 until 1354 the town experienced a happy period as a free commune. Later, nefarious events such as plagues, famines and political clashes between different factions marked the degradation and abandonment of San Gimignano so much so that it was subjected to the Florentine Republic. The exceptional architectural beauty of the village is declared a UNESCO world heritage site.

Siena

Known for its artistic, historical and cultural heritage as well as its historic Palio, Siena is distinguished by its stylistic unity in ancient medieval architecture with its typical red “terra di Siena” color.
In 1995, UNESCO listed the historic center of Siena as a World Heritage Site.
The city is home to the headquarters of Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, which was founded in 1472 and is the longest-running bank in the world.
A tour of the city can only include a walk to the beautiful Piazza del Campo, with the Palazzo Pubblico and the Torre del Mangia. With its striking and captivating black-and-white beauty, the cathedral offers a majestic example of a Romanesque-Gothic cathedral.

Pienza

In the Val d’Orcia, halfway between Montalcino and Montepulciano, stands Pienza, a delightful village nestled in the hills. Famous throughout the world for its Pecorino cheese, the town offers a real food and wine tour in typical Tuscan delicacies.
In 1996 UNESCO declared the historic center a world heritage site.
The artistic and architectural beauties are many: from the characteristic Pius II Square, to the beautiful “Pozzo dei cani” (Well of Dogs), to Pienza Cathedral, also called the “Cathedral of the Assumption.” It will be a journey into flavors and tradition!

Certaldo

Birthplace of the famous father of Italian prose, Giovanni Boccaccio, Certaldo still preserves intact the typical medieval architecture. Strolling through the narrow streets of the village is equivalent to a true plunge into history. 
Here you can have a coffee and enjoy a noodle while enjoying an atmospheric brick view, or visit the historic house where Boccaccio lived and wrote his works. The house still preserves some memorabilia of the great author, such as his study books and clothing. Here you can immerse yourself in a timeless glimpse of beauty and culture.
