I fell in love with this quaint Tuscany town at the first sight. Bought saffron and truffles from Antica Latteria, ate world's best ice cream at Gelataria Dondoli, toured a family residence at Casa Campatelli, tasted wine at Tenuta Torciano.

A fun place to visit. It is crowded with tourists though. And there are a LOT of cheesy souvenir shops. But it is worth the visit. And the torture museum is interesting, but sad.

The walled city is a fascinating look back in time while being a thriving town of touristy shops. You walk through one gate all the way through to the other gate if you have time. Otherwise, stay for an hour or so to shop and...More

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.
