Do you know that in San Gimignano in the early 1300s there were more than 70 towers?
If you come with me to visit the town I will tell you why they were built, what their use was and why today only 14 have been preserved.
I will tell you about the Etruscan origins of the village and why starting from the 5th century AD it was named San Gimignano.
I will explain how in the Middle Ages the town became an important commercial center along the Via Francigena. From a panoramic viewpoint we will observe the countryside around the town and talk about the crops that characterize it: vineyards, olive trees and… saffron!
During the visit we will walk the most important streets and stop in the most suggestive squares: Piazza della Cisterna, Piazza del Duomo, Piazza delle Erbe. I will show you the Devil's Tower and the Rognosa Tower and I will reveal the mystery of the Twin Towers.
We will end our tour at the Rocca di Montestaffoli from which you can enjoy a wonderful view of the town and the surrounding area.
The guided tour, lasting about two hours, is suitable for both adults and children.
