Wouldn't have paid to visit a model but as it was free decided to look. It was very detailed and a work of art in its own right.

Large model of San Gimignano as it once was within a shop setting, very pleasant lady in shop area, free to enter but run on charitable donations.

That someone would spend the time to make such a detailed model is amazing. This is a great stop on your visit. Its not world changing but worth the visit and admission fee

Yes, most travel agencies have excursion trips. But there is a train that can bring you to the San Gimignano area and from the station you can take a cab.
