San Gimignano Tours

When you think of the medieval era, what's the first thing that comes to mind? For most people, the word medieval conjures images of powerful Popes, dashing knights, sacred manuscripts and similar romantic fare. Unfortunately, most of the items in that list are long lost to history, and are only available to us now in fictional form. Luckily, there is one legacy of the medieval era that stands intact, and that's architecture. On our tours of San Gimignano and Siena, you'll be dazzled by the immaculate ancient towers that line the hills of the Italian countryside. As you drive by, secure and comfortable in the safety of your own luxurious private automobile, you'll be able to contemplate some of the finest medieval buildings still standing in the world today.

If you are going to be Touring Siena in the summer months, then you should make this charming city a stop on either July 2 or August 16th when you can witness the world famous Palio horse race. The entire city comes out to cheer on horse racers representing ten of the seventeen Contrade who race for both community pride and a hand painted silk banner. During these festivities you will also want to enjoy the colorful parade which precedes the race and view residents dressed in beautifully decorated medieval costumes. The Palio di Siena is a truly spectacular event that shouldn't be missed.
