We visited this great little museum a few days into a stay at San Gimignano. The house is a wonderful time capsule of the last few generations of a local family. Left to the Italian national trust it has audit tour and room cards full of insights on the family and towns interlinked past. The AV presentation brings a lot of history to life and gives context to the changing fortunes of San G. Do this tour first and it will enhance your visit to San Gimignano's other attractions extra perspective.

A quaint castle with many different shops and restaurants. They have a place that boasts the worlds best gelato....and I have to say it was excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by concert in the square that night. We also ate at a wonderful little restaurant and met some nice people from France. Very, very memorable.

The videos, the audio and the stroll around the rooms made for a very interesting hour out of the heat of the day. Family photographs, possessions and furniture give the house a very personal and comfortable feel. Not many tourists had discovered the house, so it was not crowded. A more interactive presentation than the majority of museums.

If you like to learn about History & more about the surroundings this place is a certain must. A furnished house with a lot to see, its only €6 for an Adult. There is a very good visual tour which has English audio also. The finale to the video mind you is a bit too much which will have you laughing no doubt.

You can take pictures & film within the premises also, to see everything & get a good look around will take you no more than 1hr.

I knew San Gimignano was a special place but being here was really an amazing experience which deserves proper time and relax to fully appreciate. The visit to Torre e Casa Campatelli has been for us the highlight of the trip. The audio-video tour was extremely interesting, informative and professionally done. Really highly recommended!

Excellent introduction to the history of the town and Tuscany over a thousand years plus a very tasteful mansion.

It is well worth visiting this house early on if you are visiting san Gimignano for the first time- and don’t miss the excellent video presentation. This gives a brief insight into the history of both the house and the town and helps put much of what you see later ( such as the frescoes in the duomo) into context.

This was one of our favorite things to do in San Gimignano as it was very interesting to learn about the history of the area and see how a family lived in Tuscany through the years. The tour is arranged around an excellent film that gives an introduction, then a tour through the house, which is well preserved. If you buy the San Gimignano tour ticket, there is a discount for this house and tower.

If you have ever wondered what old houses in San Gigmignano were like to live in before they were converted into shops, restaurants and cafes, you must visit this place. It's an absolutely charming, well preserved house. The short videos give a brief history of the house and family that used to own it.

On our second holiday to Tuscany this was one of the highlights overall. I struggle with museums, art galleries, castles etc but this was a fascinating insight in to a wealthy family home in the town. You are able to freely walk around each room without restrictions and admire the outdoor terrace with stunning views. There is a film / audio presentation about Sam Gimignano and the history of the family which makes you feel a greater understanding of the town in contrast to the shops.
