Visiting Volterra and San Gimignano in the same day

Jump to last reply

This October we are staying a week in Monteriggioni with a car and I'm trying to plan our day trips. For one of our days I thought I could combine a visit to Volterra and San Gimignano.

ViaMichelin states Monteriggioni is 25 miles (an hour drive) from Volterra and 16 miles (40 min drive) from San Gimignano. The drive between Volterra and San Gimignano is 22 miles (50 min) This doesn't seem too much driving for one day if the Michelin times are accurate.

Would you recommend devoting a full day to either of these towns? Our stay in Monteriggioni is the final full week of our time in Italy. We will have already been to Verona, Venice and Florence. At this point of our travels I think the interest will be in the hill towns and wines of Tuscany rather than the museums. Thanks for any comments or suggestions. Deborah
