... on it) and just got back to the van in time for the rain to start. So we sat it out for about half an hour before heading to the meeting point for our cooking glass.
Our guide, Fulvio, met us. He was a jolly looking kind of guy with long grey hair. We went back to his Tuscan Villa and met his parents (who didn’t speak any English). The cooking class was out of his kitchen so we definitely ...

Once the pasta was laid out to dry a bit, it was into the kitchen for Lesson 2, sauces. P and one of the American ladies were drafted to prepare the sauces - P stirring a plain tomato sauce, and the other gal managing the same sauce with rosemary. (And might I add that pretty much all the herbs were obtained by traipsing out into the garden to ...
So today we took a bus up to San Gimignano which is a very old old old midevil town that is surrounded by a wall. It was ABSOLUTELY freezing there so I had to buy a scarf and Brad bought a not so cheap sweatshirt (120 euros to be exact haha) We finally warmed up a bit and explored the BEAUTIFUL ancient town with secret walk ways and amazing views. We stopped at a lookout and accidentally found a quaint husband & wife own restaurant and ...

Lucca is another fortified city. Surprised? Didn’t think you would be, seems to be every city I have been to in the past two weeks has been fortified. I guess that gives you a good indication of the number of battles that went on back in the day. Rulers ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel L'Antico Pozzo San Gimignano
Loved Antico Pozzo
Recently enjoyed a whirlwind trip of Europe, ending with a couple of days at San Gimignano. A great place to end the trip, especially Hotel L'Antio Pozzo. Newly refurbished and nicely done. Many of current amenities we're used to, but keeping the old charm of San Gimi. Would definitely stay there again.
Loved Antico Pozzo
When our daughter got married in bellagio in April of 2004 we rented all of the apartments at the Antico Pozzo for our friends. These are new, very nice apartments. There is no view but a very comfortable apartment for a very reasonable price.They also have a great restaurant attached to the apartments with good food also at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend Antico Pozzo
A Bit of Medieval Heaven
We spent four nights at the L'Antico Pozzo in March,'04 and loved every minute. You are truly stepping back a few centuries. We used San Gimignano as our base to visit all of Tuscany with the exception of Florence, where we later spent six days. What a wonderful hotel! Our room was spacious and beautiful, right off a lovely courtyard. The breakfasts were superb and the staff couldn't have been more accomodating. We parked our car at an indoor garage in a space held by the hotel, only a five minute walk away. I highly recommend staying in San Gimignano and hope we will be able to return to L'Antico Pozzo. Be sure you have good, solid, comfortable walking shoes!
Our place in San Gimi!
This is a wonderful little gem of a hotel. We have stayed here twice in the past two years and we just love the town (San Gimi is wonderful), the service and the rooms. We get a junior suite -- I suggest you do the same. Rooms 12 and 14 are both wonderful. The regular rooms are smaller and not as cute. Enjoy!
Comfort with Class in San Gimignano
A stay at this perfectly located, beautifully restored medieval palace is a must when visiting this incredible treasure of a town. The hotel is furnished in the best of taste: unfussy and elegant and the staff is incredibly informed....they even helped us locate a church where we could be married!! Unforgettable!
We stayed here for two nights, which was one night too long! San Gimignano is a tourist magnet, which can be enjoyed in an afternoon or evening. Our room initally was very pretty but only had a view of a fire-escape and brick wall to replace the beautiful Tuscan landscape!
This is a FABULOUS hotel. The rooms were wonderful and ours looked over the rooftops of this small town!!!! There was a good variety of food offered at breakfast and the service was excellent!!!! Upon arriving at breakfast, the staff person would inquire if we wanted coffee, tea or hot chocolate!!! Then we would help ourselves to the rest of the breakfast and sit outside in a lovely area. What we really appreciated about this hotel was the very fine service we received from desk staff.
Loved the L'Antico Pozzo
We stayed at the L'Antico Pozzo in both 2001 and 2002. Originally, we had made reservations ouside of San Gimignano, but really wanted to be inside the city walls. After consulting Frommers, we moved to the L'Antico Pozzo which was less expensive than where we were staying.Room #14 was just incredible. Windows overlooking the street, canopied bed, and a large bathroom. While it was a little noisy in the mornings (street and breakfast room noise), we would definitely go back. Highlights: Nights in San Gimignano. Very quiet and romantic. Introduced to a great local wine Chianti Colle Senesi by the night manager.Small Issues: Night manager did not know how to connect to Internet. Air conditioning sometimes went off at night.
Wonderful Tuscan Hotel!
The Hotel L'Antico Pozzo is a beautiful hotel and our room was phenomenal (room 14 is well worth the upgrade). The hotel's private patio is nice for re-capping the day's events over a bottle of wine. Their attention to detail enhances its reputation as a place for "lovers of art," and they really take care of their guests with a huge breakfast and air conditioning. However, they DON'T ship wine, so limit your purchases if you visit the local wineries. As for San G, it is a great home base for doing day trips around Tuscany. Francesca at the wine shop across from the hotel knows her stuff and is fun to talk to. And don't overlook the Torture Museum... macabre, but fascinating.
A small gem
Patrizia and the rest of this hard working, caring staff went out of their way to take care of everything we needed in a very polite and professional style. The room was beautiful and the hotel was well located - just like the town. We will be back.
