Three Tuscan pearls of the Middle Ages. Departure in the morning from your hotel, towards Monteriggioni* one of the most important walled castles in the territory. It has incredibly preserved an intact structure as if time had never passed on the hill from which it elegantly dominates the surrounding landscape. The intact fortified wall presents 14 towers along which the guards used to walk and patrol the walls and 2 gates.
Then we continue our tour to reach the ancient town of Volterra* well known for its Etruscan origins and for the many remains belonging to this era. In early afternoon continue to San Gimignano*, located on the top of a hill and famous for its towers, Unesco world heritage. Initially seat of a small Etruscan village during Hellenistic period (II-III century. BC), it really started its history around the tenth century.

This is an amazing tour of Tuscany and three medieval towns. The guide was on time with a nice and comfortable van for the 4 of us. Very personable and gave us details while we drove. We were able to give input and discuss the itinerary. Nice lunch at a local wine tasting. The location was beautiful- the pasta just ok- but everything else was excellent. Will definitely use this guide again on our next trip! Awesome day!
