San Miniato and Vinci with a Festive Lunch - Livorno - 2018 ( 7 Hours 30 Minutes )

  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

We begin our day with a leisurely drive to the charming village of San Miniato nestled in the scenic rolling Pisan hills and dominating the lower Arno valley.

San Miniato is a beautiful medieval village oozing charm and history which is especially popular and a privileged habitat for truffles, in particular the rare and expensive white truffles which are grown and picked here. Often known as the jewel of the Pisan hill, it is strategically located at the top of three small hills and along the ancient Via Francigena which connects San Miniato to major cities such as Florence, Pisa, Rome and Siena. As a result, San Miniato over the centuries has been exposed to a constant flow of trade and travelers and has become a favorite town for many Noblemen, Emperors and Popes over the years.

We will enjoy wandering around the historic center and discovering the beauty of the old lavish palaces, the ancient tower fortress and the beautiful Romanesque style of facades, frescoes and floors throughout the village. You will see in Piazza del Popolo, the church of San Domenico, with its unfinished facade, and also the Duomo, a Latin cross church.

You will also have time at your leisure to explore San Miniato further by maybe choosing to climb the Torre di Federico which was built between 1217 and 1221 and named in honor of the Emperor and today is a “symbol” of San Miniato and despite the steps, is well worth the climb to enjoy the breathtaking views of the beautiful Tuscan landscape. Or you may use this time to shop for pottery or local specialties such as the white truffle!

Next, within a historical building we will find a young, bubbly kitchen which uses traditional flavors but with a modern twist, the Pepe Nero Restaurant. Here we will enjoy the Chef’s take on favorite specialties and taste the wonderful delicate flavors of both land and sea whilst looking over to the beautiful Tuscan countryside from our summer terrace.

After our time in beautiful San Miniato, we will head to the town of Vinci where we will enjoy discovering more about the legendary Leonardo da Vinci, his life and home. We will visit the wonderful museum which was dedicated to him. The museum hosts the most complete collection of all the models of his inventions, as well as machines and references to handwritten notes and artistic sketches. The museum also is home to the most extensive and original collections devoted to his various interests in technology, architecture, science etc. Certainly the place most intimately linked to the figure of da Vinci is the fifteenth century farmhouse where the great artist was born, which we will also visit.

After our day of exploring, we will return back to the ship.
