The most picturesque of Tuscany's hill towns...this walled jewel with its unique bell towers which go skyward, were actually protection from medieval invaders where hot tar and stones were dropped below. Ascend to the top for a picturesque vista of the surrounding countryside...wear comfortable shoes!

San Gimignano is a wonderful place to visit! Plan to spend the day & explore the local flavors. The bell towers are great fun; wear comfortable shoes and plan on taking photos every step of the way. You will enjoy the local foods and friendly people. I can't wait to visit San Gimignano again. Don't miss it!!

We stopped to visit San Gimignano for a couple of hours in the late afternoon. The medieval towers were very impressive. I wished we had more time to explore the town.

The best part about this tower is heading to the top is easier than most towers which have continuous stepsf this one has a break after each flight of stairs which is helpful to catch a break and the stairs are wide enough to go both ways. The view at the top of the tower is outstanding and captures every... More

My wife wanted to stop here, she had read about the history of the towns towers. We had a nice hike from the parking lot to the city square. Had a nice lunch, glass of wine. Breath taking views, quaint shopping. Great spot.
