Guided tours and excursions from San Gimignano

To be a tourist is better when someone can explain you the history of castles and parish churches, or accompanies you through the stories behind paintings and frescoes, or guides you through narrow streets and lanes to see beautiful panoramas. For this reason, to everyone asking for an advice about excursions and guided tours, we suggest a specialized guide such as Erica Masini.
