Beautiful, locally produced traditional design ceramics are available in all towns. San Gimignano is an 'art town' with a large variety of artistan studios to browse. Salami, cheeses, traditional cakes and biscuits like Siena's famous Panforte are great to buy. Ask your guide to point out great shops with high quality produce. The wine estate you visit has a great selection of wines and olive oils as well.
