- About The Experience
Villa Celestina is the ideal base from where to discover the real Tuscany. You do not need to venture far from this villa to feel like you’re plunging deep into a Renaissance masterpiece. Explore crumbling castles, architectural outcrops and intact medieval streetscapes nearby for a palpable sense of history. Sample an array of local wines and olive oil in the estate’s private cellars. Or simply gather around the villa’s lighted pool or rustic fireplace to spend precious moments with family and friends.
- Location Description
Villa Celestina is located near the medieval town of San Gimignano. San Gimignano is one of the most visited towns in Tuscany and is full of life and things to do. You will want to climb up one of the towers, visit the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and museums dedicated to artwork and archaeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights and play medieval games and have tournaments.
