San Miniato

San Miniato

We intend to visit San Miniato (PI) in October November and use it as our base to explore Firenze, Pisa, Lucca. San Miniato appears ideal for this as it appears to allow easy train access to the main cities and lying within driving distance for San Gimignano in the evening

1) Few accomodations are listed. Is anyone aware of others

2) Is anyone aware of whether the truffle feast may effect our stay

3) Any ideas

The truffle festival is the last 3 weekends of November and a fun activity. It takes place throughout the town with many booths of truffle related food and goods. The main streets are closed to traffic so if you are trying to drive through the town, you won't be able to.

The town itself is very small so I wouldn't think there are too many in-town options for hotels. There are two parts of the town, the upper and main part and the part lower down where the train station is located. Map any accommodation in which you are interested to see what part of town it is in. Parking may be better in the lower part. I saw an elevator which connects the two parts but am not sure if it originates at the train station.

I live close to san miniato!! the truffle feast is so beautiful!!the town is beautiful to visit to. you have ti visit it!! but it is not the only train station in the area! there are also so other more. the countryside in san miniato is not so nice, you have to move a little be inside, direction to Montaione which is a perfect place to start point for discoverin san gimignano, volterra, certaldo and to get a very comfortable train for firenze. The countryside is very beautyful and there are some interestin residence ( case per vacanze, agriturismo ...., flats).... For visiting pisa and lucca ( you can do both in one day) you can go with the car.
