Experience the very best of San Miniato, Tuscany

San Miniato

Cities and Towns in Tuscany

San Miniato is a pretty, yet lesser known hilltop town if we are to compare it to some of it's other Tuscan counterparts. It's small, yet charming historical centre is certainly worth a visit or stop off if traveling between Pisa and Florence.
Historically it was a strategic look out point, across the Tuscan plaines towards the then merchant ports of Livorno and Pisa. It was also, and still is today one of the towns along the route of the famous "Via Francigena", the pilgrims' road that led from Canterbury, UK right down to Rome. In San Miniato ,there are still points and signs indicating trails along this route for modern pilgrims who still embark on this journey.
 
The main square of the small town is Piazza della Republica or also known as Piazza del Seminario, which dates back to medieval times. Today this square hosts local markets and festivals, most famously the internationally renowned "Mostra & Mercato del Tartuffo Bianco" or the White Truffle festival which takes place every Fall. As the name suggests local suppliers put on their seasonal displays of the truffles that have been forrigged by the "tartufaio" or truffle hunters and their dogs. Of course there is an opportunity to purchase these prestigious finds often at record breaking prices, and plenty of  gastronomic stands  that offer tastings and dishes using this regional delicacy.

Client Testimonials

Jesse,
There are no words to describe the fabulous time we had in Italy. Everything went as you promised. Absolutely no problems! The venues were fabulous. The guides were punctual and helpful. It couldn't have worked out better. You and your staff deserve high praise for the quality and efficiency of your work. BTW, Guiseppe was an absolute delight. We enjoyed his informative and effervescent personality he was a hit with our group. The serenading was an added bonus! Our stay in Calabria went well too. Thank you for all your work and coordination for making this dream come true for us! If any of us travel there again, you will surely be hearing from us. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as well. Ciao for now,
