“Incredible miniature”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

The recreation of San Gimignano in miniature was truly stunning. The attention to detail and the ability to see this beautiful fortress town as it once was is certainly worth the visit. Entrance is free though I was very happy to leave a donation in order to maintain this wonderful attraction. My two boys (and I!) loved the model.

“Fantastic model of the town”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

My kids love looking at model towns so this was great for them. They were also giving away free pottery "by kids for kids" which impressed them even more! We bought the treasure hunt but were on our way out so will do it next visit.

“Get there for a short visit”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

You don't need to spend more than 20 minutes there but you should go see this model of San Gimignano in 1300: it gives an overview of what the city looked like. Entrance is free.
