This is how to spend a couple of hours. Our host, Fabio, was very gracious and informative and made us feel very unhurried and welcome. Following a nice tour of their modest facility comes an exceptional tasting experience. No less than ten nice sized wine samplings were preceded by their own olive oil and Tuscan bread. Accompanying the wines were generous servings of local meats and cheeses, all outstanding. Fabio spent a good deal of time explaining each wine, all quite good and some excellent. Adding it all up, this was a reasonably priced experience that was so much more pleasant than the standard large label, tour bus winery stop kind of place. Say hello to their friendly German Shepherd, Zara, while you're there. Highly recommended.

Rocca Federico II

Reviewed By CoreTravelEurope

San Miniato was like 10 minutes drive from our apartment so we went to see some stuff. When we got there, there wasn't any tourist or something like that. Streets were empty, but it was still beautiful. We walked for 30 minutes to the top, and it was worth it. The view is amazing. You can see a very big part of Toscany. It was just..wow!

Centro Storico di San Miniato

Reviewed By Phayao13 - Stockholm

Founded in the 700's, with a history of German-Roman emperors, cross knights, pope administration and monastery. Through Minato, the route from northern Europe went to Rome.From the tower of the 11th century, you see the rolling Tuscan landscape as far as the eye reaches. Here wine, olives and vegetables are grown, and truffles grow under the ground.Definitely worth a stop on the trip between Pisa and Florence

Cosimo Maria Masini

We offer a wine tour dedicated to natural wine-making and to the discovery of how to produce wine with full respect for the environment and its land. After a walk through the rows of grapevines farmed according to biodynamic methods we reach the courtyard - during wine harvesting here it is possible to see open pan vinification - and the vinsantiera (the place where the fine dessert wine Vinsanto is produced). We then arrive at the cellar and enter the barique cellar, where our red wines are stored to refine. Each step is accompanied by descriptions and extra focus on the topics by enologists and sommeliers of the Cosimo Maria Masini, who will be pleased to answer and satisfy any curiosity. The visit then continues to the garden of the villa which has famously seen among its residents the families of the Buonaparte and the Ridolfi, in particular Cosimo Ridolfi the founder of modern agronomy and of the Accademia dei Georgofili. The tour, which lasts for about 1hour and a half, concludes at the NOW Shop with wine tasting (our own wines) combined with the chance to savour some local products. Wine tours should be booked in advance.

The views and buildings alone at the Cosimo Maria Masini would make it worthwhile to visit - Tuscany at it's most jaw dropping, especially at the golden pre-sunset hour. Yvonne's informative and enthusiastic tour, plus the delicious wines and more-ish nibbles make it a true delight. Thank you Yvonne!

Palazzo del Seminario

Reviewed By Brun066 - Florence, Italy

Strangely, a city like San Miniato, which has one of the most impressive buildings for the Episcopal seminar of Italy, became a bishopric relatively late, in 1622. This date is in fact late, compared to those in which many Italian cities have become home to the bishopric.
However, San Miniato has been able to regain, with the construction of the seminar, the lost time, and today this building, and overall the square that houses it, are probably the most charming place of the city; a city that certainly has no shortage of monumental and landscape attractions.
The characters that in my view founded the beauty and originality of the building (and of the square that contains it) are three, however inseparable from each other: the dramatic curved façade, its decoration with statements taken from the fathers of the Church (Ambrose, Cassian, Anselmo, John Chrysostom, etc.), the rooms of the ground floor shops that still retain their medieval-style doors .
The facade is curved because the palace, built in the early eighteenth century, has incorporated (as happened to the large palaces more often than we think) many existing smaller buildings, which in turn were so shaped because they followed the same trend of the city walls.
As for the decoration of the facade, it is of the same period of the construction (although it was later repainted); it is due to the painter Francesco Chimenti (1705).
Overall the building and the square induce in the visitors a strong and lasting impression.

Reviewed By hinplus - Hong Kong

Went there for a truffle hunting tour, a very interesting event. Thanks Francesca's guidance and the hunting dog Choco. The meal afterward was excellent. Ham, cheese, pasta, and of course the most important truffle, all were great!! And also the wines were wonderful, we've bought some back home. Recommended if you will go somewhere nearby Florence or Pisa.

Si tratta di un Santuario mariano fondato nel Xlll secolo dai frati dell'ordine degli Umiliati.
Entro il tabernacolo è conservato un altorilievo in legno raffigurante la Madonna del Rosario, detta Madre dei Bimbi.

Torre di Matilde

Not as good as the Federico tower but still gave us some nice views of the Tuscan countryside. Don't bother with the museum in the church though
