San Gimignano for Foodies

The gold of San Gimignano

The historic city centreteems with wonderful places where you can sample specialties of the area.  The surrounding countryside, too, offers many farms and vineyards specialized in producing the finest local gastronomic products.  Among the wines, Vernaccia is a must-taste.  This dry white is the perfect accompaniment to light dishes and seafood.  Also thriving here is Chianti from the Sienese Hills, with its intense ruby color and its full-bodied flavour.  Why not enjoy your wine along with a dish enlivened by the taste of saffron, historically known as “the gold of San Gimignano,” and end the meal with a delectable pastry or some homemade ice cream?
