In Siena you will enjoy the best attractions admiring the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, with the Palazzo Pubblico and its tall Torre del Mangia.

The origins of San Gimignano are very ancient, born as a small Etruscan village, then the city developed considerably during the Middle Ages thanks to pilgrims traveling from western France to Rome since San Gimignano was located on the Via Francigena.

At your own pace, a walk in the city to discover the city with breathtaking views, many shops and art galleries, silver and ceramic artisans.

The main attractions of San Gimignano are the Collegiata, a Romanesque cathedral with its splendid frescoes by Ghirlandaio and other masters; the church of Sant'Agostino with frescoes by Benozzo Gozzoli; the archaeological museums with Etruscan and Roman finds that illustrate the origin of the city; The old medieval public washhouses.
