Renowned for the Palio, which dates to the Middle Ages, this town is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you're sure to be in awe as you walk through the narrow streets of the old town. Enjoy a guided tour to the magnificent Duomo and reach Piazza del Campo, once a political hub, this spot is now a symbol of one of the most ancient and intriguing horse races in the world, full of symbols, traditions and intrigue.

On the way to San Gimignano, you will take in the idyllic Tuscan countryside with its gentle hills and vineyards that produce the world renowned Chianti wines. You'll hear all about the town's history and heritage along the way from your tour leader. Once you arrive, you'll wander through the narrow streets and admire the architecture of this unique UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its medieval tall buildings and city walls.
