Let’s explore the wildest side of San Gimignano! With this hike we will discover the ancient village of Castelvecchio, situated inside a Nature Reserve in the countryside very close to the Manhattan of Middle Ages.
From Jun 15 to Sept 15, available 2 DEPARTURES per day: at 9:00AM or at 4PM, choose your preferred time.
Accompanied by your regularly qualified guide you will be immersed in the wild nature, far from the chaos of the town, and we will discover its unique features walking along ancient paths once used by shepherds and woodsmen.
Finally, you will get to the ruins of Castelvecchio, a village built up on a strategic hill in order to defend San Gimignano from its harshest enemy towns during the Middle Ages.
You will walk inside the village’s archaeological ruins where you can still recognize the private houses, shops, mills, the Church and the sighting tower from where you will enjoy a boundless landscape!
