What To Expect

Meet your driver at your Florence hotel, and enjoy views of the scenic, rolling countryside during the 1-hour drive to San Gimignano. Discover the city on your own, with insider tips on where to find the best locally-made gelato and wine. Visit the historic Piazza Duomo, then see the stunning frescoes and stone work inside the Collegiate Church and the Sant’Agostino. Climb to the town’s highest point to take in the distinctive medieval towers, and soak up the colorful atmosphere in the sunny Piazza della Cisterna.

Choose the perfect place for lunch—the area has enchanting restaurants and trattorias, or you can arrange a meal at a nearby farm house—then continue to Volterra to stroll winding, cobblestone streets to a remarkable collection of historic sites. Visit Etruscan tombs that were built hundreds of years before Christ, see elaborate Roman baths and take in an excavated stone theater.

Twilight fans shouldn’t miss Volterra’s film sites, where the dramatic scenes from ‘New Moon’ were shot with the backdrop of stone walls, historic piazzas and ramparts. Take time to explore the boutiques and workshops that line the streets, browse Volterra’s celebrated alabaster artwork, then relax in the comfortable van during the return trip to Florence.
