For next year we are thinking about going to San Gimignano. I am considering a hotel 15 mins walk away from the San Gimignano walls. Obviously using a car to travel to Volterra etc. My question - Is it busy to travel within the outskirts of San Gimignano or is it an easy drive? I ask this because when I had gone to Siena their seemed to be a lot of cars and confusion on the road compared to all the other medieval towns.
I would welcome tips and advice about hotels and driving for this part. I normally like to stay next to town because I enjoy the restaurants and wine. Also I would welcome anyone suggesting somewhere better than San Gimignano?
