This city is very unique and the towers make it so. But parking was ungodly. Parking lots were constantly full and we kept circling. Guess they can't help that. But the town is certainly worth seeing.

Located off the Piazza Del Duomo is the bell tower which charges a fairly expensive nine euro entry fee. We were faced with 250 steps but it was cleverly done with a scrolling multimedia display suspended in the middle of the tower as you climbed....More

Was pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful gem hidden away in the middle of Tuscany. We had never ever heard of this place and stopped there on route to Siena. So romantic, small cobbled streets with no cars . Small quaint shops and cafes...More

Cost €9 entry fee per person. Not a hard climb and was absolutely worth it. The views from the top are just stunning.

When in Europe you have to climb everything you can, while you can. The towers in SAN Gimy are special. Most often the view fro towers is of more buildings, but here, to look over the surrounding country side is quite spectacular.

This is a fun climb on a metal stair case, a bit steep at the end but worth the fantastic view of San Gimignano from the top!

Nice spot for a great tuscany view. Multimedia presentation is interesting. Lots of steps to get to the top but worth it. Comfortable shoes recommended.

Climbing the Torre Grosso is one of those “must do” activities in San Gimignano. I was worried about the climb, however earlier comment by others thankfully convinced me to climb the 254 steps to the top. The stairs are good, evenly spaced with a number...More

Climbing the torre grosso is worth every step, plus as you go up the project a film of the history of the tower. The views from the top are great. You appreciate the town better after seeing it from the top
