The view from the top is worth the stair climb up. The views around the city are spectacular. Even the climb up you pass through various rooms furnished as bedrooms, kitchens, sitting rooms, etc. The lower floors are actual apartments. We asked if any apartments...More

Although the World Trade Center's twin towers in NYC no longer exist, these towere in San Gimignano have withstood the test of time. They provide us an example of "permanence" and allow us to think quietly about a different age. Absolutely wonderful old city; do...More

It was really interesting as we climbed the tower to see how each level had been converted into room; living area, kitchen, bedroom etc, it would be fun to stay here and you would be able to burn off lots of calories from all the...More

Well worth the entrance fee, we enjoyed climbing this tower and seeing the interesting rental opportunity inside - maybe when my kids were younger! The views at the top are really nice - both the city and the countryside. We were only in town for...More

It's nearly 150 steps up from the plaza to the top but once you make it there the view is stunning and your eyes are rewarded! Bonus! Want to stay in a "tower", it's also a holiday rental!More

Dear Ms, thank you for your review. The tower house is available both for a holiday stay, on request, or a visit to the tower if free from rentals. It is surely a different kind of experience in terms of stay. We usually have guests...More

As you come up on San Gimignano from the distance the towers are the first and most obvious attribute if the skyline (can you call it that??). While the towers draw you in, it's the strength and majestic feel that take over as you think...More

Many of the old Italian cities have these towers. They are very striking form a distance--looking like a high rise. Up close, they are really something--just keep reminding yourself of when they were built and how much effort went into their construction! That they survive...More

Torre Salvucci Maggiore serves two functions. The first, obviously, is providing a panoramic view. Here it falls a bit short of the competition (Torre Grossa in particular) - it is the third or fourth around according to height. Still, I really do not think you...More
