Loved walking through the cobbled streets and exploring this part of italy, enjoying the piazzas, small intimate shops filled with unique products, cheeses, pasta, oils, giftware etc

The tower to go to in San Giminano. Excellent view all around, and for the culture addicts: nice museum about history and relics. In general, the small city is really a landmark. Take the time, driving up to the town, to take some pictures from a couple of kilometres away, across the vineyards and meadows.

San Gimignano itself is incredibly cute and fun to visit. Unfortunately, everything it quite overpriced, including the bell tower. We weren't able to go up that day for some reason, but we enjoyed wandering around the village.

The views were breath taking looking 360% over San Gimignano and beyond. It is a must to experience. The climb to the top via stairs is easy.

San Gimignano is simply beautiful, worthwhile also to visit in the evening. We enjoyed some very good restaurants.

A lovely, historic and picturesque city. Despite the hot weather, it was well worth our visit. The shops are very much the same all over and the place is touristy but the city is rather unique so we thoroughly enjoyed wondering around for a couple of hours. We had a spot of lunch and soaked up the atmosphere while enjoying... More

A lot of stairs, but it is not that bad. The 360 view is unforgettable, i suggest going near sundown, to watch the sunset over the tuscan hills

Great views and something well worth the time. San Gimignano is a must see village in Tuscany. The views of the Tuscany hill country from the top of the tower is spectacular.

Let's just say that the views are amazing and San Gimignano though touristy is well worth a visit just to spend wandering the streets.

I enjoyed the walk up the 200 plus steps to appreciate the views but some warning to clients should be given that it is no more than a ladder for the last 20 steps. Not suitable for children and not suitable for those that struggle with some fear of heights
