I spent a day in the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, the beautiful but crowded little jewel in the Italien tourist crown. I had no luck getting a Hotel room there. They was either fully booked or quite simply extortionate. I made my way down the valley and stumbled across the town of Poggibonsi. It was beautiful. The first hotel I saw on entering the town was the Hotel Alcide in the Via Marconi. The rooms were the most reasonably priced I have ever encountered in all my Italien travels. The room was clean, bright, cool and well aired. The restaurant was a delight to dine in and the food of a quality I did not expect to encounter in such a small town. The staff were kind and welcoming and were always cheerful and smiling stay in the Alcide. You will not be disappointed. The money you save can be spent on the fine Chianti of the region.
The town itself is just perfectly Tuscan. It has a small cinema the Garibaldi and plenty of little shops to buy gifts.
Just a few miles from San Gimignano my advice is book your overnight (or longer term)
