Duration: 9 hours
Take a journey to the two most historical villages in Tuscany: San Gimignano and Volterra, along with the city of Colle di Val D’Elsa. While on the way to San Gimignano, take a stop in the town of Colle di Cal d’Elsa, named after the River Elsa that crosses the valley, which is considered the capital of Italian Crystal. For 800 years this is the location where beautiful crystal glass is produced and transformed into gorgeous and unique handmade works of art. Have the chance to witness the crystal glass making first hand in a traditional factory in this amazing town.
You will then have the pleasure of observing the medieval architecture, of noble families to symbolize power and wealth, which have been conserved in the town of San Gimignano. The village of San Gimignano is also famously known for Vernaccia- The only White Wine from Tuscany with the highest classification of quality from DOCG. You will be able to taste this treasured wine during a traditional lunch in a local farm. Continuing on your journey, you will arrive in Volterra- a hilltop village overlooking the entire breathtaking valley onto the sea. Known for its alabaster stone, you will arrive at a workshop to admire the precious handmade objects created from this precious stone.
