It was my first time to Florence and I wondered if it was worth it to leave for the day, but it totally was. S.G. is so special, and there is a lot to see in such a small place. Additionally, just a 15 minute ride away is a great winery with beautiful grounds and a solid tasting room. So... More

Another delightful we town which has totally excluded cars. If you are into art, on the main street in on the right hand side is a fabulous contemporary art shop, as good as you can get anywhere. The delightful owner spoke english and was extremely helpful. We purchased a sculpture and she arranged delivery. All arrived home safely and very... More

This free attraction is definitely worth finding. It depicts a painstaking and 'accurate' reconstruction of the entire town back in the 14th Century when it still boasted its 72 towers.

Had a day trip to San Gimignano during a holiday in Tuscany...whilst there's no shortage of ancient medieval towns perched on mountains in the area, this was certainly a place of great interest and history...if you're in the area you should take a look...if history isn't your thing there dozens of places to sample wine

Great replica of san gimignano at 1300. No idea who did it or why since the place looks like a family souvenir business. It has lots of details and really worth go to visit. I love it!

We went later in the day and the town was beautifull and quite. Nice high street and plenty of restaurant in all varieties and price classes.

We went to San Gimignano on our honeymoon and we loved the atmosphere and people (and, of course, the WINE) so much we are coming back this Fall! Sure, the town is generally touristy, but if you plan your trip in advance, you can research the non-touristy places and restaurants to visit. Last time, we stayed in a B&B (fabulous)... More

The city was on the main pilgrim route between north Europe and Rome and was a halting point for the pilgrims in 12th and 13th centuries and the this brought the city great prosperity. The route was diverted after the plague in 1348. We were surprised how well preserved the old city looks even today. If someone is reborn after... More

If you are in Tuscany and within driving distance of San Gimignano then you must go. Such a beautiful location and worth a nice walk around the entire town. I highly recommended walking around the streets and try to get a little lost. The architecture is beautiful and the views from the outer walls are amazing. As with anywhwere in... More
