I loved San Gimignano. The stores were great. The food was amazing and I really enjoyed the Bell Tower. The view was fantastic. I would really like to visit again.

All in our tour enjoyed this litttle town the most. Only problem is the parking if your driving a car. Our first time was with a bus which made it very easy, but we were limited on our time. Driving back again allowed more time for shopping and to go up in the Tower. This offered an excellent view of... More

This is the best place to shoot your towers panorama. Worth the climb up so many steps - no lift, of course!

San Gimignano was one of my most favorite towns we visited while in Italy for 11 days. It wasn't even on our initial itinerary, but our driver suggested it and we are so glad he did. It is a Medieval town that my kids thought looked like something out of a Harry Potter novel. I highly suggest stopping here while... More

Climb to the top of the tower to get the best view of San Gimignano. It will really help you to get your bearings. If you are at the top on the hour then you will see the bells ringing in another nearby tower.

Loved the city history and the view from the Bell Tower. A must when discovering the area. Avoid August if you do not like crowds...

When I first walked into this historical city, I was captivated by the families sitting by an old city centre with coffee in hand, surrounded by buildings hundreds of years old. The care, preservation, respect for building and appreciate for all aspects of beauty fills this village. I think it is a little gem in Italy that reminds us we... More

You can go in on a door next to the main cathedral, in piazza del Duomo. The ticket is combined with 2 other sites: Palazzo Comunale (where you walk in to climb the tower) and the Pinacoteca (10min walking), and its worth the price (7 to 8 euros). To go in the tower you have to start inside the Palazzo... More
