My husband booked this tour during our stay in Italy this fall after seeing it in Trip Advisor. We drove to San Gimignano and did some morning sightseeing then set out by foot on the dirt road for the 20 minute walk to the winery. The walk in itself was breathtaking with beautiful views of the town and surrounding landscape.... More
