This tour will give you a flavour of rural Tuscany, and it all begins with a drive to San Gimignano. The town is famous for its striking Medieval towers that stand out against the Tuscan skyline. It’s home to the Palazzo del Popolo, a 14th-century palace. And the central square is dominated by a tall tower that offers panoramic views of the town and the nearby Governor’s Palace. You’ll have plenty of time to browse, perhaps stopping for a cappuccino or a gelato in one of the trendy cafés. When you’ve had your fill of San Gimignano, you’ll head to a pretty farmhouse set among rolling green hills. Here, you’ll experience true Italian hospitality. The old and new generations of the family that own this farmhouse embrace their traditional roots, farming their one hundred acres of land in the same way their ancestors did. They organically grow different varieties of grape, as well as barley, oats, corn, sunflowers, durum, wheat, farro, and over 1,500 olive trees that produce excellent extra-virgin olive oil. After your tour of the farm, you’ll be treated to a lunch of typical Tuscan fare on the veranda, with a view of San Gimignano.
