A lot of the combined ticket items are very art and religion focused with less (no) detail about history and construction, but the tower itself really worth seeing. A lot of stairs, more than 300 to the top, but no problem if you have normal...More

What a charming place. Hardly any people ascending. Lovely wide staircase for most of the way up. Inexpensive entry. Go up for the views ❤️❤️❤️❤️.... never say No to views.

Torre Grossa is the only tower open to visitors, there are about 150 steps, there is a metal staircase in place, so not that difficult to climb, but when you get to the top you will be amazed at the views across San Gimignano and...More

Not that my visit there after completing three years of college level Italian plus a degree in Spanish contributed minimally to my pleasure there, but I wouldn't have gone without the knowledge of those two languages. Extremely crowded on many days. I did climb the...More

San Gimignano is a charming medieval town and a must visit in Tuscany. You can feel the amazing spirit in every street you walk. The views are really outstanding, esp. if you climb to the top of Torre Grossa. Check for yourself, you won't regret!
