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.

A lovely, historic and picturesque city. Despite the hot weather, it was well worth our visit.

Go to the ticket office of the Archeology Museum. It has a nice collection of Etruscan pieces, contemporary art, and when we were there, a photography exhibit.
