My niece and I spent two wonderful nights at Il Vicario and we had the best time cooking and laughing with Fulvio and Katia. The views of Tuscany were awesome. Fulvio got us a cab to go into town. San Gimignano is picturesque and friendly. Lots of affordable leather goods and souvenirs. The local wine is good. We should have planned a longer stay, but my niece wanted to see all of Italy in one week. Easy to get to by train from Pisa Centrale. Get off at Certaldo and then take a taxi to Il Vicario. We called Fulvio from the Certaldo train station and he told us how to get there. Such a genuine, all-around nice guy! His niece Katia is a doll! She taught our cooking class and her knowledge of Tuscan cuisine was impressive. We plan to return and spend more time in Tuscany. Loved it!
