We are coming to Italy on a Globes Tour and will be in Florence on Friday, May 19th. We are offered an optional excursion to San Gimignano that day. We are wondering if this Globus tour stops at Sovestro In Poggio. A friend told us not to miss Sovestro In Poggio. If it is not part of of that excursion we would rather get to you somehow. We will be staying at the Grand Hotel Mediterranean. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time. Pam & Dan Allen
