San Miniato Free Alternative Street Art Tour

Piazza del Duomo, 56028 San Miniato PI, Italy

If you’ve decided to spend your vacation in Tuscany, there are a few little towns and villages worth visiting. Less well-known, but no less attractive than the region’s most well-known locations.
San Miniato is without a doubt one of them.San Miniato was a bone of conflict between Florence and Pisa in the past. In the name of the town’s prosperity, they both claimed tutorship. It is today located in the province of Pisa, along what was previously known as the Via Francigena, a road that connected Canterbury and Rome. San Miniato was strategically important due to its closeness to important Tuscan towns such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, Pistoia, and San Gimignano. It was given the name “twenty miles town” because it is around twenty miles from each of them.

Why Travellers Choose This Tour?

San Miniato is endowed with charm and history, owing to the presence of both Etruscan and Roman civilizations. However, it appears that the town was afterwards affiliated with Germanic tribes, as evidenced by old documents attesting to the name San Miniato al Tedesco, which meant “German.” As a result, a tour following the town’s architectural legacy is a fun way to learn about and feel the town’s history. The central Piazza del Popolo, which houses the fourteenth-century church of San Domenico, rich in works of art and frescos, as well as a sepulchral monument by Donatello, can be a good starting point.
