5 Days in San Gimignano, Tuscany

by reneebrowne

I am spending 5 days in San Gimignano Tuscany. I really want to do wine tasting at local wineries, any suggestions? Also, what nearby cities are close enough for a day trip?

Thanks

Right in town is a tasting room for a vineyard of San Gimignano. that makes it pretty easy to get to, just walk right in, and the view from the courtyard in back is a beautiful Tuscan landscape, with the rolling hills and the typical Italian trees. While sipping wine, it is a great memory. Most of the wineries in the area are by appointment only. I know of two a distance away that are exceptional wineries. In Gaiole in Chianti, the Badia a Coltibuono Winery has public hours as well as further away in Montalcino, the Castello Banfi, open to publicand is a remarkable castle as well as winery. Siena is a beautiful and historic city near San Gimignano, between the two winery locations. Ciao

We are spending 3 days in Tuscany in Singaluna which is near Siena. Coming from Florence we will be driving through Chianti. There are many wineries there and within and hour from where you are staying.

Huge wine list !

by myriam_c about Ristorante PerucĂ 

A small and cozy restaurant situated in the renovated wine caves of an ancient palazzo. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in explaining what was on the menu (and what I couldn't find in my dictionary). It was one of the few places that had fish (sea bass and swordfish) on its menu. We really enjoyed watching the sommelier while he did the wine ceremony. We ordered a Chianti Classico for which he brought us special glasses. He poured a dash of the wine in my glass, turned it around for 20 seconds or so, poured the dash of wine in my partner's glass, also turned it around and finally poured the dash in an ordinary glass that he put aside to be taken away. Our glasses were now prepared for the wine.

On our next visit we ordered a different kind of wine, we got different glasses but the ceremony was the same.

Both times we got a free grappa after dinner, just as if we were old friends.

Piazza del Duomo

by KiNyA

We were all sitting on the floor and listening to the guide who was explaining us the facts about this beautiful town.
Among the historic buildings located here is also Palazzo Vecchio del Podesta (1239), whose tower is probably the oldest.

Torre dei Cugnanesi

by MM212

Dominating the view at the end of Via San Giovanni, la Torre dei Cugnanesi is one of the highest towers in San Gimignano. It dates from the 13th century and belonged to the Cugnanesi family, along with their namesake palazzo. Both are located just outside the Arco dei Becci, at the end of Via San Giovanni.

Chiesa di San Bartolo

by croisbeauty

San Bartolo is pretty little Romanesque church built in 1173, which still retains the Jerusalem Cross on its facade. The church is situated in Via San Matteo, right after passing the Chancery Arch. As the most churches built in the Romanesque style, it has very simple almost severe facade and small bell tower on the rooftop.
