Located in San Gimignano, Campatelli is an 18th-century building that features one of the town’s famous medieval towers. The residence of a high-ranking family in the 19th and 20th centuries, Casa Campatelli reconstructs - through its fornitures...more

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.
The former home of the wealthy Campatelli family has been preserved as it was a few years ago when its last resident donated it to the Italian National Fondation. The typical house-tower structure is full of arts and antiquities, showing in very vivid way the...More
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!!
We happened to find this place on our last visit to the town, just before we left to return home. The tower is no longer open for us to climb to the top, but there are enough other towers in the town to give you...More

The excellent video is about 25 minutes. The tour (walking around on your own) is about 30 minutes. It depends on how interested you are in furniture, soft furnishings, wallpaper, etc. It could take longer if you are really interested in this. Stairs -- nothing unusual, just what you would expect in a 2 to 3 story house.
