I had the pleasure of climbing up one of the bell towers which was not only fascinating but very surreal due to the age of the tower and history behind this small medevil town. I took photos on my ascent up the tower through various windows leading up to a metal staircase that enabled us to climb onto the top... More

The bells are heard at various times, depending on the day of the week, and the time of year. It is special if you are staying near the tower and are woken by the bells (often at 7am).

Visiting San Gimignano was an experience worth to remember for a lifetime. The history behind these towers, that revealed the wealth of the families, makes you wonder how the place really was when ALL the towers were still standing!The Bell Tower, as well as the whole surrounding area (square and fontaine) just make you travel through time!

Whilst here you must climb to the top of this. The views are not just extensive but simply breath taking. Well worth climbing the steps.

There is a wonderful all round view of the town when you get to the top of the tower - it's worth the climb! The views extend out to the surrounding countryside and hills. Try visiting late afternoon and see the warm Tuscan light across the ancient stonework and roof lines.
