Once home to 72 medieval castle towers, only 14 remain in the Italian hilltop town of San Gimignano. Encircled by 13th-century walls, the mesmerising main square is draped in memoirs. Your native guide narrates the tale, as you promenade through history.
Of the tower skyline, just Torre Chigi remains inhabited. Owned by the Giachi family, it is they who invite you in. For this will be the setting of your evening. Within the walls of this ancient monument, exquisite flavours flow. Indulge in a wine tasting as refined as the experience is immersive. Dig into an elegant three-course dinner amid ambient scenes.
Secluded from the masses, the town’s second tallest structure is yours to enjoy. The entertainment can be adapted to meet any special requests. Alternatively, surrender to soprano notes trailing in from the Central Hall. As you sip on a glass of Tuscan bliss taking in the view, the colours of sunset begin their own dance. They combine with the lively hubbub of the square below, a moment you will remember fondly for years to come.
