A trip out of town among the medieval cities

A weekend among the ancient Tuscan villages is the perfect choice for those who want to perceive the authentic Tuscan culture made of small things, food, wine, art, crafts, dialects and breathtaking landscapes.

Pastel-colored spots lying on soft hills, the impression you will have will be to take a journey through history, traditions and tranquility that these small towns can give.

We offer you what we believe are the unmissable villages of Tuscany.

Montepulciano

A pretty medieval village surrounded by ancient walls and famous for the wine it gives its name to, it stands on a hill from which it is easy to get lost in the green Tuscan hills. A dip in the typical products such as wine and oil will make your visit unforgettable.

San Gimignano

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1990 San Gimignano is a small fortified town halfway between Florence and Siena, is famous for its beautiful medieval towers that make the city profile truly unique, today 14 towers remain, initially they were 72.

Monteriggioni

A very small village with few roads but which leaves behind a memory that lasts forever. A magical place that recalls the memories of children’s fairy tales. In the evening, with its illuminated yellow walls, it will almost seem like a mirage in the middle of the Tuscan hills.

Pitigliano

Also called the “little Jerusalem”, Pitigliano is the real treasure of the Maremma. A village suspended halfway between heaven and earth that amazes for the continuity between the walls of the houses and the tuff promontory that welcomes it.

Volterra

An unmistakably medieval-looking town where you can still enjoy the atmosphere of an ancient village that has not been contaminated. Here and there monasteries, hermitages, farmhouses set among rows of cypresses and centenary olive trees: an unmistakable panorama.
