Volterra / San Gimignano in a Day Tour

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATuscan Vineyard Tours’ Day Trip to Volterra and San Gimignano is a day packed with history, fine wine, and shopping opportunities all in settings of incredible beauty and history. Volterra is a Medieval city that is largely intact and was used as a setting for the popularTwilight films. Its roots stem from Etruscan (Pre-Roman) origins when it was a thriving commercial center, nestled high in the Tuscan hills.
