What you'll do

You will be in one of the most incredible town in the entire region: San Gimignano, known in the world for its towers, but not only. My goal is to show you the best of this very special place, that I am sure will amaze you! The towers will be the red thread that will bend the entire tour, but I will also tell you about the history of this incredible place through its other treasures, such as the city wall, the fascinating and typical streets, the arches and the churches.
I will meet you at the entrance of the village, in front of Porta San Giovanni, from where we will enter inside of San Gimignano, climbing a tower, having a coffee together, experiencing the streets, enjoying beautiful views on the town and on the countryside surrounding it, don't forgetting the two most important churches: the Collegiata and Sant'Agostino.
So, here I am: I am waiting for you to be ready to visit this amazing place!
Other things to note
Take your camera with you, good shoes, good legs and curiosity!

My name is Nicola Bernini and I am from Panzano in Chianti, a very small village located on the top of one of the famous Chianti hills, knighted in the middle between Florence and Siena, from where I do my job as a tourist guide. Art, history and nature are the pillars of my interests. So here I am, ready to help you to discover and appreciate a beautiful and very stunning little place: San Gimignano.

Where you'll be

We will visit the town of San Gimignano starting from Porta San Giovanni and touching all the most important places. First of all the beautiful Via San Giovanni, the most importamt street of San Gimignano, then Piazza della Cisterna, Piazza del Duomo, Palazzo Pubblico, Torre Grossa, Collegiata di Santa Maria and Sant'Agostino church. I've chosen this place because I consider it an absolut "must seen" location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 5 reviews.

If you go to San Gimignano - book this tour. Nicolas knowledge about this city, about the history and the development over the centuries is incredible! But not only his knowledge but also his kindness was really incredible! It was a really special and one of a kind tour.

It was the best choice we could have made. I had been in San Giminiano before, but with Nicola it was a hundred times better. He is so enthusiastic and communicative, and has such a wide knowledge that we found ourselves having fun learning history. My daughter just loved it. Besides, he gave us good hints on other things to and a great restaurant. We'd love to come back to Tuscany and take another tour with him.
