The entrance to the tower and palace complex is fascinating in itself but the view from the tower roof the icing on the cake. The display as you wind your way upstairs is clever, interesting, relevant and well executed. Don't miss out the Pinoteca as...More

Definitely worth a climb.Great views of medieval walls and surrounding wineries. We visited in string rain, very few people climbing up, but still good experience. Would have given five stars but for a few questionable steps at the very top, but overall not a hard...More

We bought combined ticket for museum and Torre Grossa. The museum was so lovely and interesting. You should try the art glass.

Great view to to rooftops and towers of San Gimignano from Torre Grossa. A bit expensive, though (9€) if you just come for climb because the ticket is a combo-ticket. For a free tower experience, climb the smaller - but free! - tower at the...More

A lot of the combined ticket items are very art and religion focused with less (no) detail about history and construction, but the tower itself really worth seeing. A lot of stairs, more than 300 to the top, but no problem if you have normal...More

We visited only the tower, since i believe there was no combined ticket. Naturally one must take a lot of stairs to the top but the view is definitely worth it. right before reaching the top of the tower there is a cca 10-15 min...More

Its the only one of the 14 towers in San Gimignano you can visit, it has a museum included in the price (to be honest if it wasn't, I wouldn't have bother with visiting the museum), the stairs are relatively easy but the last few...More

Torre Grossa is the only tower open to visitors, there are about 150 steps, there is a metal staircase in place, so not that difficult to climb, but when you get to the top you will be amazed at the views across San Gimignano and...More
