Fortified walls and watchtowers show power and prosperity in the Middle Ages. Only thirteen of the town’s original 76 towers remain. Enjoy your time to stroll the narrow cobbled streets taking San Gimignano’s sights, Piazza della Cisterna, the Collegiata in Piazza del Duomo, a Romanesque cathedral known.
From San Gimignano half an hour and the driver will park in the center of Volterra. The Etruscans town sits on a rocky plateau and is protected by medieval ramparts. Takes a tour in the Piazza dei Priori, one of Italy’s most impressive squares and visit the Etruscan Museum, known all over the world. You are in a place where Italy’s history and language were born! Volterra is also known for its fine frescoes.
For groups larger than 8 a city tax check point will be added for the bus entrance to Florence for (215.00 euro), Pisa (130.00 euro), Siena (100.00 euro), San Gimignano (60.00 euro), Lucca (35.00 euro), Livorno Pier (60.00 euro), La Spezia Pier (100.00 euro). Consequently, it is much cheaper to book one or more minibus with 8 seats with a real english speaking driver on board.
When you land on your ship you have to take the shuttle bus (orange or blue) and get off at the last stop which is the Harbour of La Spezia where your driver will be waiting with a welcome sign under your name and the name of our companies such as:
“SMITH – UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN TOURS”
Please put yourself in the top positions when you need to get off the ship so do not waste time and meet your driver on time.
