    Visiting the walled city of San Gimignano.....the Manhattan of Italy......was a wonderful treat. Medival in appearance for sure.....cobblestones, narrow walkways, not a bit of flat surface....either going up or down......it was such fun!!!! A great mix of restaurants, clothing stores, souvenirs, gelato, spritzes to drink......and the locals were very friendly.

    Fantastic people, great wine tasting and lunch, and great views. I did something I had not done in my life, I bought a case of wine to have shipped to the USA. Very easy, very accommodating, highly recommend!

    We stayed at Guardastelle for a week to attend our son's wedding and were completely blown away with the love and attention to detail that Fausto, Suzanna and their team put into our stay and making the wedding so special.
    We had stayed at Guardastelle 2yrs earlier for a short break and were thrilled to find that our memories were not wrong and that the standard of the accommodation, gardens, pool and wonderful breakfasts were just as good (if not better), not to mention the fabulous views of the Tuscan countryside.
    Some of the ladies also enjoyed an afternoon of wine tasting which was fun and accompanied by lovely local produce.
    We plan to return to this beautiful place soon and suggested we could accompany our son and daughter -in law each year to celebrate their wedding anniversary - but not sure they would appreciate this !!!

    Worth a visit! The place is quiet, lots of infos regarding the city in its past. The scale of old times’ San Gimignano is perfectly done, really like it!

    This is one of the best collections of works in the entire city. I absolutely suggest to visit it by means of the cumulative ticket that, besides making the price of the visit really derisory, also provides an audio guide that allows you to understand the meaning of the beautiful works on display.

    We spent 4 nights in May in San Gimignano and our hotel was located in the Piazza della Cisterna. It is a beautiful, medieval square, which now has a few bar/restaurant/wine bars and a few ice cream shops. It was lovely to have a drink or snack at any of the terrace bars, especially in the evening. Be sure to try the ice cream at Dondoli!!

    During our recent camper car trip in Italy, we spent a delightful time in Tuscany. During our stay in San Gimignano we took the opportunity to visit "Il Piano wines and wine tasting". We were met there by Mr David Hughes. The welcome was wonderful.
    A  tour of their wine making facility along with description of the processes and equipments used was above other wine visits we have done. What a fountain of knowledge is David.
    He also found a lovely site for us to park our camper overnight on the property. 
    Lovely swimming pool facility and 180 degree views of Tuscan country side.
    Now come to the actual tasting -- Superb. Whites and reds. All excellent, and they also provide a shipping service when there is no more room in your vehicule.

    You can find him on-
    Instagram     @il-piano-wines  or @tuscanwinedog
    Also on Facebook ---- Il Piano Wines and Wine Tastings

    I found the museum to be poorly maintained compared to all the other museums in the city. However, once up on the tower, the view will surely leave you breathless and, for that alone, is worth the price of the ticket.

    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.

    The tallest tower in San Gimignano is worth the effort. Once you get to the top the view is magnificent, on a clear and sunny day the distance you can see is stunning. You also get a good view of how the Tuscan landscape is shaped. That can be hard when you’re driving in the valleys.

    Museo della Tortura is the typical museum about torture that always there is in medieval towns. It is located in San Gimignano, a wonderful medieval town in Tuscany Region, in the center of Italy. Really, this museum is very interesting and you can learn a lot about the torture in medieval period and death penalty. In fact, there are two museums: one about torture and one about death penalty. Here you can learn about Middle Ages. Really it is a very interesting museum. Better for adults.

    This is an amazing must do experience when you are in san gimignano. We had the Tuscan light lunch but we could not eat any more the rest of the day. The wines paired beautifully with the food and a really nice host with good explanation.

    This church is easily accessible all year round but is more peaceful in early mornings. The winter months see less tourists and so give the visitor a more tranquil experience.
