We went over to San Gimignano for a half day trip and absolutely loved it. Parking was easy outside the walls and it was a great day for a walk through the little streets, to enjoy the piazzas, to visit the museums, the Duomo/Basilica, the Rocca! The museo della tortura was striking - I won't do that again! All in... More

This interesting museum has excellent exhibits that describe life in Tuscany during the middle ages - entrance is free but there is a fee to rent the audioguide. Definitely worth a visit if, like us, you are a history buff.

Is free and the replica is good, you can capture pictures that would appear you are on top of the City.

We visited San Gimignano several times on our honeymoon. After our first visit we just kept going back. It is a fantastic place with some great history, amazing architecture and fantastic restaurants.

While on a driving tour of Tuscany, we happened upon this little hilltop town. Walking around the city you find one amazing view after another. Easy access and relatively small in size, this small town is a beautiful example of a small Tuscan walled city. Not to be missed.

When we visited San Gimignano in August 1973 there were few tourists and we enjoyed empty streets. This year it was wall to wall people with the inevitable tourist shops which are clearly wanted else they would not have any business. Even at midnight people were eating gelato and sitting on anything from the ground to steps talking and generally... More

I have been coming back here for the past 40 years simply due to the fact that it is interesting and unique. It never gets old and the stroll through the town is always fascinating. The buildings remain, but the stores are constantly changing. Lots of great ceramic and leather goods stores in very close proximity makes it a nice... More

This was a good little find in one of the backstreets. Free to enter and just ask for donations . The amount of workmanship that went into this model is extraordinary. Really worth a 15/20 minute visit!
