I’ve recently had the great pleasure  and fortune to  have a holiday break in San Gimignano, in a very special place set along the ancient Via Francigena: it’s the lovely Locanda Viani, set on a hill overlooking San Gimignano and offerring a beautiful view over its imposing Towers.

Staying at Locanda Viani it’s like staying at home, you’ll be welcomed by great hosts: the painter Roberto Viani, his wife Paola (a great chef) and his amiable son Cesare.
 We are now great friends. All the rooms are elegantly furnished and you will have the great opportunity to discover the real and authentic tuscan cuisine, and become more familiar with the traditions of this land, tasting a selection of superb local products, such as tuscan wine, olive oil, and cheese.

A beautiful and typical tuscan kitchen will welcome you, and you could also prepare the dinner together with Paola.
 The cooking courses of Paola are not to be missed. All the plates derive from a careful and attentive research on the ancient Tuscan cuisine, and you could have the pleasure to taste delicious dishes like the Cibreo dè Medici or the Roast Cannon-Bone of Chianina Breed with Potatoes.


Roberto will be your friend and will help you to enjoy your tuscan experience at its best. This is the perfect place not only to stop and relax, but also to become more familiar with the true spirit of this region.
