If you arrive walking along the Francigena it is definitely worth stopping right here, at the Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Chianni, a fascinating and remarkable example of Romanesque architecture (with a little luck you can even come across some concert, here they often organize). Inhabited at least since the Neolithic period, the Gambassi area reaches the period of greatest influence from the Etruscan-Archaic period (VII century BC) to the late Roman one (III century AD). Important remains (tombs that traces of settlements) have been found in the archaeological area of Poggio all'Aglione and in many other sites throughout the Gambassi area. The archaeological finds from that period are admirable in the Palazzo Civico and in the headquarters of the Archaeological Group, where they are exhibited in a permanent exhibition. A few centuries later, from the Middle Ages to the modern era, the Gambassi area it became known for the activity of the glassmakers, who practiced their profession here. Gambassi owes its name (since 1977) to the Baths that have been flowing in this area since ancient times. Even today the terminal plants are now immersed in the green of the municipal park, the idea behind the location was to promote an easily accessible and particularly qualified experience on the medical-scientific level, in an ideal context for environmental and historical-artistic conditions.
Occupying a ridge between two hills, in the Chianti area, overlooking the Val d'Elsa, Tenuta Sant'Ilario is the ideal place to discover authentic Tuscany.
With its forest of towers that stand out on the horizon, San Gimignano is one of the most iconic and recognizable destinations in all of Tuscany. From every part of the world there is someone who dreams of reaching this ancient village to experience the experience of immersing himself in a perfect medieval postcard. UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990, San Gimignano, also known as the "Manhattan of the Middle Ages", owes its fame to the incredible amount of towers that towered over the roofs of the small town, even 65 in the heyday of the city.

San Miniato is a delightful village perched on a hill just a short distance from the Arno and halfway between Florence and Pisa (not by chance for centuries disputed between the two cities). The origins of the center, famous for its delicious white truffle typical of its territory, date back to the Etruscan-Roman era. The castle was built in 962 by Emperor Otto I, and Federico Barbarossa and Pope Gregorio V. stayed there. Founded in the VIII century by a group of Lombards (in fact once the city was known as San Miniato al German), the name of the town came from its foundation linked to the name of the martyr Miniato.
