About the neighborhood
San Gimignano is one of the most visited towns in Tuscany and is full of life and things to do. You will want to climb up one of the towers, visit the 12th century Duomo, the People's Palace, and museums dedicated to artwork and archeology. There are also plenty of wine tasting, art galleries, shops, and delicious restaurants. Numerous celebrations and gatherings are held every year including a music festival featuring theater, ballet, and opera performances and a Medieval Harvest festival where the people of San Gimignano dress up as knights and play medieval games and have tournaments. While San Gimignano is 3.5 km away by car, it is possible to walk to the town on an unpaved country road for about half the distance, and then meet up with the main road into town - all uphill. <b>N...
