I had trip with my wife. I honestly found all historical cities in Tuscany very similar. If you have seen one of it you did know them all. However, blogs say extremely wonderful things about it, so we seek to visit them all. Honestly ......More
Walking around this lovely historic centre which dates back to the 14th Century is great there are plenty of shops and historical features to explore. You will find many cafe bars and restaurants. But to explore the centre and take a walk around the city...More
The main street was jammed but there are many side streets that let you get away from the (other) tourists. Wander and soak up the atmosphere, the Medieval beauty and charm.
My only disappointment was not finding a San Gimignano t-shirt.
Just lovely town that has FABULOUS stores. FABULOUS Gelateria, and just other stores that contain affordable merchandise. It's just a small wonder in the overall Toscana landscape!!
Been here before and still enjoy all that they have here. Bought more than I thought I would've....More
There is a special atmosphere in this city, even if it is packed with tourists during the day. Recommend to visit San Gimignano at night when the city breathes again. Right before sunset the photo oppurtunities are endless, and you can get pictures of the...More
Visited this beautiful Medieval city of towers as a part of a bus tour of Italy. Lots of hilly and cobblestoned streets, so those with knee problems will need to have a slow pace. Visited the beautiful church. Had some of the best gelato in...More
This is a great place to visit. The town is bustling during the day but at night it is quiet and great place to explore. Lots of shops and sites to visit. Watch Tea with Mussolini before you go. The frescos in the Duomo were...More
One can imagine pilgrims along the Via Francigena stopping here for the night, seeking refuge in this small town.
There are two main squares in town, one with a cistern in the middle of the square and the other one right in front of the...More
The journey- we decided not to hire a car and use the local transport for our holiday. From Pisa airport we caught the Pisamover train to Pisa Centrale. A train to Empoli and another train from Empoli to Poggibonsi. The trains were on time and...More

If you’re staying for a week or so I’d recommend staying in one of the many converted farmhouses with pools in one of the countryside locations which are about a 15-20 minute drive from Florence, Siena and san gimignano. Try the Italian country cottage website. Then hire a car and visit all 3 locations on day trips. Siena is my favourite but they’re all fabulous.

To san Gimignano there is no train station, it only can be reached by bus. If you come through florence you have to take a bus or train to Poggibonsi and take another bus to san gamignano. Its a 90min ride
OHHHHH do I have a place for you! We stayed at the Guardastelle in a cottage (the one on their website with the spiral staircase) and it was glorious! They offer a B & B style experience or you can rent one of the... More
OHHHHH do I have a place for you! We stayed at the Guardastelle in a cottage (the one on their website with the spiral staircase) and it was glorious! They offer a B & B style experience or you can rent one of the stand-alone cottages. You can walk to the walled city of San Gimignano, take part in one of their cooking classes, taste their wine and olive oil... We enjoyed everything about this place, especially Suzanne and Fausto - the owners.
