We only managed less than two hours as part of an organised Citalia tour. When we arrive there was a massive downpour of rain, waited and waited, the rain eased and the sunshine returned. We headed to the south door at the far end of the town and stood transfixed at the stunning Tuscan countryside, beautiful. The whole place just... More

I had only eight er heard of Sa Gimignano and did not know what to expect. This is a delightful Tuscan hill town in Tuscany. Though a popular tourist town, then fascinating views in the town and the stunning scenic views are worth the effort to get there.We arrived just before noon and it was. It terribly crowded. That changed... More

Yes it is touristic place - but which one in Tuscany is not? Just dont that let you down and do visit the town! It is unique in the world and with a common sense you will enjoy it. Be there early in the morning or in the late afternoon. And do visit the streets away from the main one... More

Our best time during our 2-day visit to Tuscany was when visiting this charming town and travelling the roads around it. 100% loved it!

This beautiful medieval town is very house proud and well preserved but you have to get there before the tourist buses arrive from the cruise ships. You miss a little in the shopping as most stores don't open before 9am to 9:30 but its worth it not to battle the crowds.

Yes there are lots of tourists but the town has kept its history. Visited in May and not too crowded. Beautiful place with lots of restaurants and beautiful country side.

Some places are full Of tourists for a reason - they're gorgeous. San Gimignano is one of them. We spent our day lunching in one of the best restaurants I've ever been to, browsing shops, eating gelato from a shop that has won worlds best gelato maker twice and poking about in small art galleries. It was wonderful and I... More

San Gimignano is a cute town, nothing outstanding compared to other towns we visited in Italy, EXCEPT they were the rudest. They outright dislike tourists. I even asked a police officer for directions as I was passing by and she pointed me in the wrong direction and drove off.
