All reviews gelato ice cream lots of shops beautiful town narrow streets old city hill town few hours tourist shops couple of hours every corner gelateria dondoli walk around the main square day trippers middle ages medieval times
The Historic Centre of San Gimignano is really a wonderful place to just walk all day and evening. Tour buses haul away most of the people by dinner time, and those staying in the city center have the place to themselves in the evenings.
We were here on a Saturday in December around 3:30 pm. We were one of the few people here today and were able to get some wonderful views and photos of the square and its amazing structures. It is just a short walk there along...More
This is one of the oldest and best preserved walled medieval towns anywhere in the world and it is also blessed with a great location in the hills and valleys of Tuscany and thus there are great views to be had from there. A number...More
The views from this mountain city are fantastic! Loved the shops, people were great most spoke English. The only reason I did not give it a five star was because if you have any kind of walking problem the cobblestone streets and steep hills are...More
Loved this little town with so much character up in the rolling hills of Tuscany. It's narrow, winding, cobblestone streets are fun to walk. The architecture is interesting with all the old towers. There are tons of shops in which to buy hand-painted pottery, sausage,...More
Visiting the historic center is a must - it will take you back in time and you will feel the authenticity of this beautiful town. The view is picturesque and the towers are magnificent. Pizza in one of the small restaurants and ice cream at...More
I had trip with my wife. I honestly found all historical cities in Tuscany very similar. If you have seen one of it you did know them all. However, blogs say extremely wonderful things about it, so we seek to visit them all. Honestly ......More

If you’re staying for a week or so I’d recommend staying in one of the many converted farmhouses with pools in one of the countryside locations which are about a 15-20 minute drive from Florence, Siena and san gimignano. Try the Italian country cottage website. Then hire a car and visit all 3 locations on day trips. Siena is my favourite but they’re all fabulous.

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
OHHHHH do I have a place for you! We stayed at the Guardastelle in a cottage (the one on their website with the spiral staircase) and it was glorious! They offer a B & B style experience or you can rent one of the... More
OHHHHH do I have a place for you! We stayed at the Guardastelle in a cottage (the one on their website with the spiral staircase) and it was glorious! They offer a B & B style experience or you can rent one of the stand-alone cottages. You can walk to the walled city of San Gimignano, take part in one of their cooking classes, taste their wine and olive oil... We enjoyed everything about this place, especially Suzanne and Fausto - the owners.
