The whole town of San Gimignano is worth a visit, and when you walk through the historical streets of the old town you naturally pass PIazza del Duomo. Nice square, where you can see some of the many towers of the town - especially Tower Grossa is worth a visit.

It is a central square in the middle of the historic centre of San Gimginano. The place is full of life and often crowded with tourists. A lot of souvenier shops, restuarants and bars in beautiful historic buildings are around.

The piazza cisterns is a lovely spot to take pictures of the towers and to get gelato. There are covered areas to get out of the sun on hot days. In winter, the town is much less crowded and you can wander around taking photos of the interesting architecture.
