The best chocolate ice on the globe

Siena Province | Siena is situated in the heart of Tuscany. The student town in gothic style is surrounded by three hills. Go on a walk through the winding and steep lanes, be enthralled by the delightful architecture of the Gothic period and watch street artists perform amusing acts. The stroll through the city then passes on to the Piazza del Campo which is a shell shaped plaza in the centre and where numerous inviting cafés and restaurants are located. Alternatively sit on one of the cobble stones and enjoy the going-on. On the 2nd of July and 16th of August every year the famous horse race Palio di Siena takes place around this place.

Past the yellow broom and rape the streets of Tuscany lead to San Gimignano which can be seen from far away due to its characteristic towers. What is regarded as the Manhattan of the Medieval period you can climb up the Torre Grosse. The dizzy ascent via the transparent steps is very much worth it considering the spectacular view. Afterwards refresh yourself at the Piazza with a cool drink or “gelato” (ice cream). Insider tip: In San Gimifnano there is a small gelateria that has received the award of having the best chocolate ice cream in the world. Honestly it is just a dream!

    “Although it is as the nearest place we have never been to Casole d'Elsa. We made our purchases in Colle Val d'Elsa, which can be reached by car in 20 minutes, a good selection and reasonable prices offers and itself worth a trip. Siena, Florence, Volterra, S. Gimignano are easily accessible for day trips by car. We have exploited. A walk to Volterra was lovely and full of history (Etruscan tombs). The apartment is ideal for hiking or city trips.”

    “The location is manageable and remote location from the bustle. Nevertheless, one is fast in Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano or the Chianti.”

    “Quiet, small town, some typical Italian restaurants with typical Italian food and sufficient wine selection. In the center there in the narrow street a few adequate shopping (department store, butchers, ..). The location is ideal as a starting point for excursions in the various regions of Tuscany.”
