Renting a villa with private pool near San Gimignano and Volterra
between Florence and Siena, along the Francigena road – the route pilgrims took to reach Rome in the Middle Ages- stands the impressive tower-town San Gimignano. 14 out of 72 towers still stand in perfect conditions and give the town its unique character. This jewel belongs to the “musts” to be seen while in Italy. San Gimignano is crowded and packed with tourists most of the time, it is therefore a good idea to select a holiday villa in the surroundings, rather than the town itself. Once you are settled into your holiday villa and spent some time in idle moments by the pool, you can start exploring the area. At 30km from San Gimignano stands Volterra, an impressive Etruscan hilltop settlement. There are many interesting places to see while there – like the Etruscan Necropolis. On a different note, we suggest you to whet your appetite - there are several family-run restaurants where authentic, simply divine food is served.
