Cute Museum with a small replica of the City

Is free and the replica is good, you can capture pictures that would appear you are on top of the City.

We visited San Gimignano several times on our honeymoon. After our first visit we just kept going back. It is a fantastic place with some great history, amazing architecture and fantastic restaurants.

While on a driving tour of Tuscany, we happened upon this little hilltop town. Walking around the city you find one amazing view after another. Easy access and relatively small in size, this small town is a beautiful example of a small Tuscan walled city. Not to be missed.

I have been coming back here for the past 40 years simply due to the fact that it is interesting and unique. It never gets old and the stroll through the town is always fascinating. The buildings remain, but the stores are constantly changing. Lots of great ceramic and leather goods stores in very close proximity makes it a nice... More

This was a good little find in one of the backstreets. Free to enter and just ask for donations . The amount of workmanship that went into this model is extraordinary. Really worth a 15/20 minute visit!

Great examples of medieval Romanesque and Gothic architecture and the many towers. Being on a hill there are awesome views of the Tuscany countryside. The gelato at Gelateria Dondoli “The World Champion 2006/2007 - 2008/2009” was pretty good. The Duomo or Collegiate Church situated on the west side of the Duomo square is a remarkable monument ... The art is... More
