This was a wonderful find during our trip to San Gimignano- a place we thought we knew a bit about until this FAI attraction. Each room in the Campatelli home was like stepping back in time. The view inside their bell tower was amazing. The...More

So worth the visit! Amazing to see how the families of San Gimignano lived by wondering the rooms of the house and seeing inside a tower. There is also an amazing video/documentary on the 1,000 year history of the city. The commentary is in multiple...More

This old tower home was kept within an old family for centuries, and the FAI Italian Heritage Trust Property was fortunate to be able to buy it from the heirs, and maintain it for educational purposes.

This is a great place to start one's San Gimignano experience for first time visitors (like ourselves) and we were sorry we only visited it at the end of our trip. The audio video gives such an interesting account of the history of the area.

If you're in San Giminiano, avoid the crowds and pop in to this wonderful "living museum" donated by an eminent San Giminiano family. It's a time capsule of their lives and every room is dedicated to one of the family with photographs and mementos. You...More

We stayed within the walls of San Gimignano for three nights. Prior to catching a bus to Siena, we had time to visit this beautiful house and wished that we had done so on our first day. Why? Aside from the lovely rooms, a visit...More

Very interesting and well setup museum - or better - an open house taking you through the history of Tuscany: the houses, the towers, the shape of the landscape and the culture it stands for today. Bravo! Well done!!
