Such a super place to visit! This place is way understated online. You might think you have seen enough towns churches or piazzas but if you haven't been here,you are short hanging yourself! The duomo of Santa Fina is lovely and the headset tour well articulated and a must in order to appreciate! Climb the tower,you must see the rolling... More

A greta place to stroll and take in the atmosphere of this old town. Full of tourists but still a lovely place to visit. Good restaurants and cafes even the car parks were well managed.

Visit! It´s worth it! One of the loveliest towns in Italy (or at least this area). We land up there by faith and we were amazed by the city. They have apparently the best ice-cream in the world - little ice-cream shop in the center has won many prizes during last years. The best pizza I´ve had (Riccapizza) and the... More

Wow! Well preserved, still have that medieval vibe, amazing views from tops of any tower! And there are like 18 around to pick from. Beautiful Sienna is opened up from those towers. It might be spooky at night though but beautiful as well.

San Gimignano is a town worth visiting despite every tourist who going to Tuscany going to this town. Try and get in and out of the town early before the crowds.

12 of us were staying in a Tuscan Villa 5km from San Gimignano. As we drove through the countryside searching for our villa we soon spotted the ancient, walled city of San Gimignano. I held back the tears as the reality of meeting with family & friends sunk in. The towers rise from the walls and salute you as you... More

We were first here on a mt bike tour in 2007....you know the tour routine; arrived late PM one day, whirlwind tour the next morning and then we were off. And so over the years this was one place we desired to revisit to spend a little quality time. For our Oct 2014 trip to Tuscany we contracted with local... More

We visited with a group on a bus tour. The view over the countryside from the bus park was remarkable. I could not get my head inside the state of mind which created so many towers. It really must have been a very wealthy city. I is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Tuscany. You must visit the... More
