San Gimignano would have to be one of our favourite stops on our recent trip to Italy. This magical ancient hill town overlooking the Tuscan country side with it's amazing towers is not to be missed. Lovely place to walk around the old streets and enjoy the lovely squares and have a feed at one of the many great restaurants.... More

Visit in evening away from the madding crowds and soak up the atmosphere. Bars on the SE side have excellent views as sun goes down

We took a lovely trip from Siena to San Gimignano for the day. We caught the bus which took about an hour and a half and was punctual and good value. The town is now very much a tourist destination, but despite the fairly large crowds it didn't seem spoilt or overcrowded. There are lots of interesting shops, particularly if... More

Love this town. Great shopping, museums, and some great places to eat. Have visited twice in the last two years and can't wait to go back. Have bought great art, jewelry,ceramics and clothes not to mention a few salami's.

A real must to visit in a trip to Tuscany although Tuscany offers so many great destinations, San Gimignano has great diversity from the other main towns by way of towers (only numbering 11 from the original 72 including the Commune), Castle, walled towns like some others, a unique tuscan jewel and under protection from Unesco.

Very quaint and lovely. There is an overlook at the top of the hill next to a wine shop. Wonderful view. Many small shops and places to dine line the winding streets.

We had a day trip to this town, from Florence. This place was just amazing. It is the typical old town with a wall around the whole town. You enter through an arch, which would have had a draw bridge. The streets are all cobblestone, the buildings are around 1300's and beautifully kept. From a high point you can see... More
