When we visited San Gimignano in August 1973 there were few tourists and we enjoyed empty streets. This year it was wall to wall people with the inevitable tourist shops which are clearly wanted else they would not have any business. Even at midnight people were eating gelato and sitting on anything from the ground to steps talking and generally... More

I have been coming back here for the past 40 years simply due to the fact that it is interesting and unique. It never gets old and the stroll through the town is always fascinating. The buildings remain, but the stores are constantly changing. Lots of great ceramic and leather goods stores in very close proximity makes it a nice... More

This was a good little find in one of the backstreets. Free to enter and just ask for donations . The amount of workmanship that went into this model is extraordinary. Really worth a 15/20 minute visit!

Great examples of medieval Romanesque and Gothic architecture and the many towers. Being on a hill there are awesome views of the Tuscany countryside. The gelato at Gelateria Dondoli “The World Champion 2006/2007 - 2008/2009” was pretty good. The Duomo or Collegiate Church situated on the west side of the Duomo square is a remarkable monument ... The art is... More

We rented a villa that overlooked the town of San Gimignano. Drove to the town and walked the village several times. While parking can be a challenge (go early if self parking) the town is filled with history that takes you back in time. Wonderful food, shopping and museums will take up the day quickly! The are is quite large... More

The tourist information office will tell you where to find this great model of the town in 1300. We found it interesting but also helpful in planning our walk round the present day town! It is free but worth leaving a donation.
