The Locanda Viani has only 4 rooms (for 8/9 people maximum) and for us it is like a big family. All our rooms are en-suite, have air conditioning, WiFi internet, a small private wine bar, a balcony and a terrace equipped with all comforts for a pleasant stay, facing a unique view of San Gimignano. every morning you can have tomatoes, vegetables, fruit and all that the seasonal offers of fresh and natural. For the breakfast of our guests we prepare homemade Tuscan bread, focaccia and cakes with organic flour and mother yeast. Our Locanda is a building dating back to 1100 AD, an ancient pilgrim house on the Via Francigena (road that connected Canterbury to Rome for those who went on pilgrimage to the Pope). Our guests come to us because it is important to have a human relationship, to feel like family and to know the history, art, cuisine and wines of our area. Our guests seek the tranquility of the countryside with all the comforts of a small hotel, but be close to the historic center to not take the car and look for parking / expensive). We are just 400 meters from the historic center with private parking (very important in San Gimignano).

The Viani family offers its splendid home for all those who love Tuscany and would like to discover those places and traditions that only a friend on the spot can know. A very important piece of information: if you want to be accustomed to the services of a hotel category, look for a SPA, a bar and a non-stop reception, lifts, etc., we are not a luxury hotel, we are a small but comfortable b & b, with only 4 rooms with bathroom, with shower, linen, hairdryer and courtesy set. Just 400 meters from the historic center (with the possibility of walking and leaving the car at our private parking) but in the silence and tranquility of the countryside. We have a wonderful view of San Gimignano.

San Gimignano city of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of UNESCO Outstanding Universal Value The Historic Centre of San Gimignano sits on a height of land, dominating the surrounding landscape. During the Middle Ages, its location in Val d’Elsa, 56 km south of Florence, provided an important relay point for pilgrims travelling to or from Rome on the Via Francigena. The town became independent in 1199 and between the 11th and the 13th century the noble families and upper middle-class merchants who controlled the free town built many fortified tower houses (probably 72) as symbols of their wealth and power. The town grew around two principal squares: the triangular Piazza della Cisterna, ornamented with a lovely central well, and the Piazza Duomo, dating from the late 13th century with its more intricate layout containing the majority of public and private monuments. While only 14 of the original tower houses have survived, San Gimignano has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance, embellished with several notable palaces during the 12th and 14th century. The town also has several masterpieces of Italian art dating to the 14th and 15th centuries. These are f
