Immersing oneself among the gently sloping slopes of the hills cultivated with olive trees and vines, you get to the town going up the famous Viale dei Cipressi, sung by Carducci and which has become one of the icons of the Tuscan landscape.
Inside the walls, in addition to the suggestive views, it is possible to discover the typical Tuscan products, thanks to a dense network of taverns, restaurants and food and wine shops; Bolgheri in particular and the surrounding areas are distinguished by the production of excellent wines, the quality of which is guaranteed by the Bolgheri DOC consortium.

The tourist port, recently built, has led to a renewal of the physiognomy of the town culminating in the construction of the suggestive “Sailor’s Walk”. The route runs along the harbor and juts out into the sea and is accessible to pedestrians and cyclists both day and night. At the top of the walk stands the imposing sculpture by Giampaolo Talani which, together with the frescoes of the village church, constitutes one of the cultural attractions of San Vincenzo.
