Great shops, fun to get lost and wander down the streets, everything you could wish to see- shopping, food, art, churches, museums, etc. We came here at least 4 times during our stay and had a new experience each time.

San Gimignano is absolutely beautiful. It’s whole atmosphere seems taken out of a movie. It’s definitely worth it to stop by when in Tuscany.

This is a lovely medieval village - one of the many in France and Italy. This one is different because of the towers that still exist and which are visible from most parts of the village and surrounding area. The centre square is quite open,...More

This city is very beautiful, specially in the evening, when the most tourists are gone. The open hours from the stores are quite short. This is a pity.

We enjoyed a trip to San Gimignano recently, and we virtually had the place to ourselves for a while :). The trick is to get there early - we arrived at about 7:40am - and if you're lucky there are a few free parking spots...More

Such a beautiful town. Really interesting architecture with the big towers. Lovely squares and side streets. Lots of nice craft shops and cafes.

To san Gimignano there is no train station, it only can be reached by bus. If you come through florence you have to take a bus or train to Poggibonsi and take another bus to san gamignano. Its a 90min ride

I hope it's not too late to answer your question. The best thing you can do is to take the train all the way to a little town called Pogibonsi. The train does not stop in San Gimignano. So, take a bus from Pogibonsi to San... More
