First stop to San Gimignano and free visit of the village:
San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town not far from Siena. Known as the “Town of Fine Towers”, during the Middle Ages there were more than 70 towers in the city. Now it is a real open-air museum, where it seems to walk in the medieval period. The town also is known for saffron, the Golden Ham, and its white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, produced from the ancient variety of Vernaccia grape which is grown on the sandstone hillsides of the area. In the main square don't forget to taste the best 'ice cream in the world'(Gelateria Dondoli), and in the streets of the village you can admire the extraordinary work of expert craftsmen.
Admission Ticket Free
After the visit to the farm, we will drive through the famous "Chianti Wine Road" and the sweet Siena hills, amidst olive-groves, cypress trees and vineyards up to the Medieval town of Montepulciano.

After lunch, we will drive through the beautiful Val d' Orcia (Orcia Valley) countryside up to Montepulciano. Arrived in the main square, we will visit two Historic Cellars. Our driver-escort will lead you inside of two underground cellars, between underground shafts with brick walls. Here you will find gigantic oak barrels, in which the famous Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG and the Rosso di Montepulciano DOC “rest”.
