TRAVELER COMMENT: Stella has a tremendous breadth and depth of Siena from both a historical perspective as well as a current day resident. We have had numerous tours in the past, Stella ranks at the top. She did the impossible with our group of 3 teenagers and 4 adults, she kept everyone's attention throughout the entire tour which she extended to answer all of our questions.

 

Monteriggioni, Colle Val d’Elsa and  San Gimignano on the Francigena Pilgrims route

 

This tour will help us learn stories about the Francigena medieval Route, where pilgrims, popes, queens and beggars used to walk all the way from Canterbury to Rome for salvation. We will visit

 

Monteriggioni, one of the most interesting medieval castles also used by Dante Alighieri for the Comedy,

 

Colle Val d’Elsa where the architect of Palazzo Vecchio and the Cathedral of  Florence Arnolfo di Cambio was born and where we can visit the Museum of Crystal.

We will then stop in San Gimignano to visit the Collegiate Church and the frescoes of the Old and New Testament and climb the Torre Grossa, you will feel like going back 700 years ago and this is even more real when you enter the exhibition Sangimignano 1300, a very interesting way to know the details of the town and its people created by very good artisans in ceramic.

 

Tasting one of the best ice-creams in the region and meditate with a glass of Vernaccia white wine…
